  • Jeepers creepers! I thought I was in front of the wrong place when I arrived. What a bizarre place. Crooked stairs, strange host, red snag carpet in the lockers, overly warm bedroom (I could hardly sleep it was so hot). If I hadn't been so exhausted, I would have left immediately. Pros - the host did stay up to let me in.

  • The location is close to major sightseeing spot but around the hostel, looks not good neighbours and loud at night.

  • The staff there is amazing! extremely heplful and friendly! We came there one day earlier than our schedule by accident and there were no space for us, however, Sam helped us to find another place to stay and called us a taxi. It was quite late and we were so worried, if without her help, we will probably sleep on the street… Everything was good during our staying. The location is very very good, close to Chinatown where you can find cheap food and to every attraction we can walk by foot!!

  • Very good place to stay. Staff manages the place well. The only problem was the one bathroom for the two top floors; creates a bottleneck in the mornings when everyone is trying to shower, wash, etc. Fatima and Sammi were very enjoyable....

  • This place was FANTASTIC. What really makes it great is the staff. Ron makes sure that you are at home and will do everything possible to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The facilities are great and the location is 2 min away from the Metro. I was very satisfied with my stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
