  • I really enjoyed staying at this hostel due to a lot of things! The staff is nice and helpful, everything is clean, free pasta/rice/breakfast and a really good location. I would really recommend it for both people who are just staying a couple of nights, and also people who intend to stay for a longer time. The only real minus is the wifi, which was available for a fee, were not very stable at all. I got disconnected from time to time, etc. (Not a big deal really, but still)

  • Great staff, very clean, largest hostel I've ever stayed at with a great crowd of people. The staff let me cancel my 2nd night with no issues because I had a friend in town I was going to stay with. Towels free, nice clean bedding, although beds are not that comfortable at all. Great location within walking distance from almost everything.

  • Check-in and check-out times are flexible, so no need to rush if you arrive at late night or have to depart early morning. No free internet but there is free breakfast. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the city. Overall, a nice and economic place to stay.

  • Very good hostel. Good kitchen, cool bar, helpful staff. Drawbacks: it's a 20 min walk away from downtown (the main nightlife venues), and wifi isn't free.
