  • I would highly recommend this place. Very great atmosphere and comfort. Very helpful staff - they truly aim to make this place a home from home. Also the building is very interesting. The hostel has the concept of "journey" - lots of storeys at this place.

  • Excellent brand new hostel with great value for money. The owners knew the tastiest restaurants to go to and the hostel was air-conditioned almost throughout. It was a nice cold respite from the hot weather.

  • Warmly welcomed by the enhusiastic and congenial young proprietors, i had a pleasant stay. With an esthetically pleasing decor, House of Journey is a very clean and well thought out new hostel. The location of the hostel is excellent, on a quiet back street yet close to the action. My one criticism is having to go downstairs to pee in the middle of the night. i wish them well.
