  • Nice staff. Facilities were new and clean. I really liked the location too, although I wish the underground stop was closer. The walls were pretty thin, but that seems fairly standard for all hostels. I really liked that each bed had privacy curtains.

  • Very clean. Nice beds with individual curtains. Only downside is that there's no breakfast included. The price is a bit to the high side. But I won't hesitate booking here again.

  • It was really good to stay there, I had to take the bus to get there from the city,though. especially, I like the curtain for each bad and clean room.

  • Noisy at night and the staff did nothing about it. Pillows are awful.

  • It was my second time on a hostel and I didn't like it! The location of the hostel is bad, not far from the center, but the atmosphere is strange and seems dangerous... The staff are not very nice! The hostel's conditions are very good, but it wasn't always cleaned.

  • A really nice hostel: clean and comfortable. However, it is hotel-like insofar you don't have a kitchen to cook for yourself, only a regular bar.

  • The bedroom is good that each bed has it's own curtain. The bathroom is clean but the drainage has a bit problem that flooding occurs after bathing. The wifi is only available in the bar which is located at the basement. so, if you want to use the wifi, you have to go down.

  • Although its is pretty far from the city centre, this is a very nice place to stay. Nice comfortable beds, good facilities in the dorm, friendly staff. It was too bad the wifi was not working in the whole hostel. It was a good stay!

  • This hostel was great! I loved that even though I was in a room for 8 I had this privacy, thanks to the curtains. I saw that people complained about location but the underground station was literally a 5 minute walk and there was a Nandos near the station aswell. The only downside was the wifi not in the rooms. Although my sister and I enjoyed hanging out in the bar. Very open and it was nice to not be in the room. However when the bar would get packed the internet was extremely slow.
