  • A pleasant stay but I was unhappy about the fact there were no lockers at all for our valuables. Also the 'breakfast' that is advertised is basically cheap bread and jam without any milk for your tea or coffee. The room was comfy but sometimes cold due to the aircon that no one knew how to turn off!

  • The location is great. The rest not so much. It smells, looks worn down, the people are a bit weird. On the bright side, I had lockers underneath the bed and the dorm room to myself (which was just lucky). The room and bathrooms were alright. But the overall atmosphere lacked and looked dodgy. And the check in took forever.

  • You can't complain about anything here, expected some dirty hostel because the low price. But it wasn't dirty at all!

  • Location was amazing. Steps away from great shopping, entertainment, food, market, transportation and culture. The place itself was fine, not brand new but totally acceptable given the price and the location. The kitchen was fine, and free breakfast was very nice. It was noisy at night but not that bad because the on location bar closes around 11pm so there was no noise after that. One mention is that I booked for a female dorm but that is not the way it worked out - it was more mixed.

  • As far as hostels go, very good location in the heart of the city and fairly clean. Big kitchen, friendly staff, great balcony, and very good value for what you pay for.
