  • Had really good times in this hostel because it's exactly in the center of the city. Could be a bit more cheap tho.

  • There was a nice social/party atmosphere on the main level in the bar/restaurant, but you couldn't hear any of the loud music up on the second floor. Very nice and helpful staff. The top bunks had no ladders and may be hard for shorter people to climb but overall it was a very nice hostel in a great location and my stay was very pleasant.

  • Staff was friendly, beds were clean, security lock on the door to get to the rooms from the bar, nice smoking area, and located on a popular strip. I traveled by myself and did not meet any friends but maybe I traveled on the wrong dates. The showers had wooden doors that were decomposing on the bottom because of the water, but sometimes you gotta suck it up and stop being a complainer.

  • Our 4-guest room was made of 2-guest by replacing all the chairs, cabinets and clothes rack with two additional beds. So we had all our clothes in a big dirty heap in the middle of the room. Hotel location is very good. A jet of water in the shower was very weak, it was hard to get a shower.

  • The hostel was very expensive compared to the room we had. The receptionists weren't so kind. It was very hot in the dorm room even though the window was open and it was pretty cold outside. The room smelled weird too - and I don't mean that plant. Good things were that the bathrooms were in an average shape and the location was excellent.

  • It was just such a gross hostel. I stayed there fr night and couldn't shower because I was kind of grossed out and there is a funny smell throughout the entire hostel. Definitely won't be going back.

  • You should have a separate entrance to the hostel, going through a bar to the reception does not invoke a lot of confidence. That's why we didn't want to stay!!! Also your method of piling up customer's bags at the bottom of the staircase, where everybody has access is a terrible procedure!

  • This hostel has a great location; it is very close to the central station and the Red Light District is just 5minutes away by foot. However, the facilities could be a lot better. I stayed in an bunk bed and there were no stairs to go to the upper bed. Even though it was possible to climb up it was not cat all comfortable. You can find better places to stay at the same price, but not with the same location.
