  • I love this hostel, excellent value for the money, very comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, and very clean rooms. The hallway and entry areas have gotten a bit run down in the three years since I have last been there, and unfortunately the customer service was not great this time - not very welcoming or very prepared to answer questions. That said, if you are looking for an inexpensive, safe, comfy place to stay that is about 10 minutes walk from the touristy areas, this is a great option.

  • This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are very nice and inclusive, and the atmosphere was perfect. The rooms and bathrooms were always clean, and everything is all nicely put together. I recommend this hostel to anyone who does not want a loud place and looks to sleep, but also easily make friends. I hope to return!

  • I had a very pleasant stay, both staffs and manager are friendly and helpful, the location is convenient, the price is very reasonable, I'd recommend this place and definitely come back again; however a few little things can improve such as the lilltle "box" area that used for check in can be modernized a bit.
