  • Nice friendly staff, clean dorm rooms. Good common areas to meet people. Bathrooms are a bit poorly designed, but apart from that a good hostel.

  • Quite often people would forget to unlock the other side of the bathroom door. it will be great if the lock to the bathroom can be changed somehow.

  • Great hostel, the guests were friendly as well as the staff! The rooms and facilities were functional, the location is right next to the university and 2 minutes walk away from a bus stop to take you downtown. Somewhat hard to find as it is back from the street and the signs are hard to spot. My only complaint would be the "included breakfast" that really isn't much of a breakfast at all... Unless you lilke plain toast...

  • Nice murals on the walls! They give this place a lot of character. It's easy to reach by bus from downtown or the airport shuttle from the airport, and there are plenty of restaurants and cute shops in the neighborhood.
