  • Staff were helpful but not really friendly. I hated that corridors and rooms were carpeted, they were very dirty and smelled really bad. The room smelled of mold. Beds were not comfortable. Also the wi-fi connection went down and they took three days to repair it. Since they don't have free access computers, I had no Internet access during my whole stay, and they offered no compensation whatsoever for failing to provide a service they advertised in their website. I would not recommend it

  • They do not have reading lights in the room as they have advertised. We need to read or work in the hall.

  • It is clean and quiet place. I stayed here for 2 nights with 2 other friends, Staffs seemed to pretty nice. And location was good. It is close from a metro station, If I visit in the city again, I will definitely stay here again.

  • I had a private room. The common areas seemed very nice, staff was friendly and helpful, location is good. My room was not up to the usual hostel standard for the price.. The bed was just a crappy cot, no air con, no TV, the website says cable TV which I take to mean a TV in the room which is common at many hostels. The bathrooms were gross and badly in need of renovation. One of the two showers was broken at least the entire time I was there and general cleanliness was pretty poor.

  • The room was spartan, but the view from the 6th Floor was wonderful. I already recommended the hostel to my friends.

  • The room was quite simple. Unfortunately we did not have a sink in our room.

  • The good thing about this hostel is that it doesn't look like one. We were given everything we'd asked for. The room was ok, quite clean and neat for a hostel. It's a pity you can't get coffee from the coffee machine after 5 p.m. Thanks, Berkeley Hostel!

  • Paid 120 $ per night to stay in a shabby, tiny single room, where the ceiling fan didn't provide much relief of the sauna temperatures. I'm not exaggerating. Worst value for money I ever got.
