  • Was very loud in common area outside at night until well past 2am, was unable to get a good night's sleep. Was the only downside, but since I was really just paying for a place to sleep it detracted a lot from value and experience.

  • Decent hostel with friendly staff. There seem to be a lot of guests that are temporary living here while working. Probably best not to get the large dorm if you want a quit night, it's next to the living room. The other rooms are quiet and have a view on the tennis court haha. Wifi is slow and only works in the lobby.

  • Great kitchen facilities, odd location (next to all the embassies?). Helpful staff but things seem a little unorganized (the wrong sheets were changed in our room, no trashcans in the room etc.). Not sure if there are quiet hours or not, so ask for a room not overlooking the yard if you are a light sleeper.

  • Pity that I was just here for 1 night, but the hostel was one of the best I had stayed on, during my entire journey!
