  • This hostel is in a terrible location and has no atmosphere. The managers use backpackers strapped for cash to run and clean the place which is extremely unprofessional. After paying $60 for our room we were informed that the showers run with coins and that it costs $0.50 for five minutes of hot water. The sheets on our bed were dirty and had obviously not been changed since the last guests. The bedroom walls are paper thin the lights in the hall were out and overall our experience was horrible.

    Sorry to hear about your experience. Your comment about the workers is inaccurate and offensive towards them. the 50cts shower is mentioned in the description of all booking websites, it is for 6mn and the 1st one is given (and you stayed 1 night ) . Our linen is changed after each guest, if it was not to your liking the managers are here to help you and find a solution. But you never went to them during your 1 night stay.

  • Great hostel, we booked a couple days to start and have nearly been here a month now. Small hostel with a chilled out atmosphere and a lot of really nice backpackers. Even though there were quite a few long term people they were very welcoming to us when the minute we arrived. Would defiantly recommend this hostel close to the city if ur looking for a job and always something going on, on the weekend. Close to all the bus stops as well.
