Really nice hostel! Dorms are crowded, but the beds are comfy and all rooms have fans and ac. They have an amazing roof terrace with a bar and pool, where they often organize bbq's, sushi nights (so sad I missed it) and live music. Still not very noisey though (the benefit of not being right in the party centre), so... More

The Biggest problem is that they were fully booked and we could only stay two nights. We liked the roof atmosphere but it didn't seem very social. People seemed to be traveling together or have their own social circles, and being there for 2 days didn't allow us time to make friends. The owner put forth a lot of effort... More

The hostel is a true backpackers hostel with a nifty bar on the roof top. The owners have had some time to iron out a few kinks that may have been reflected in previous reviews. The hostel is fine. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms sanitary. What more can you ask for on a budget? I would recommend buying... More

I stayed 3 nights in thr hostel and I was very happy with all the services they offer. The room I stayed in was new and had a problem with the a/c but besides that it was very good. It has a great rooftop and a cool ambient in general. Totally recommended.
