Bathrooms the BEST ONES are the ones on floor #1. Ask for them on reception, go and use them for having a shower etc,... More

The staff were non-existent. On arrival in the apartment the staff did not even introduce themselves - I figured out that they were staff when I saw them cleaning a day later! Room was very noisy and light came in from other rooms. There were also too many people staying for the number of toilets and bathrooms (1 bathroom between... More

Great clean and relaxed hostel, biggest let down was it does not have a common area to meet other travellers. Also no kitchen which can be very costly to a back packer as you need to eat out or only purchase easily edible foods. Apart from that a very pleasant hostel in a fantastic location

I went there with a friend and we slept for 3 nights in a 6 persons bedroom. Beds are bad but the activities of the city will make you tired enough to sleep a bit. People there are great. All people we met were friendly and respectful, a lot of Aussies! The location is just fabulous... if you are ready... More

A small room without air con. If we had the balcony door open during Nights we got nasty smelling and warm air from the restaurant downstairs. The check-in staff was not nice or intrested in helping me and my boyfriend. (But when four young girls came he suddnely went super kind and helpful) Super expensive price for a bad hostel!

Horrible! I've stayed in many hostel's over the years including in Israel and Canada. This is probably the worst place I've stayed. We arrived and the young girls running the hostel were confused about how to get us our key since the other reception area was closed, huh? It was about 4pm. We got our key finally and went to...

If you want to be scratching welts on your skin for weeks after staying somewhere.. Stay at urban house. If you want a cold shower with abhorrent water pressure.. Stay at urban house. If you want to stay in a hostel with no hang out zone or air conditioning.. Stay at urban house. In short, this hostel is disgusting, beds... More

Recently stayed at Urban House Gip and was very disappointed. Check-in became a horror show and we were moved rooms twice. None of the staff seemed to know what was going on - a very disorganised hostel. Lack of security meant other guests were given the same keys to our room. Interesting that the five star review below is written... More

The staff keep your passports as form of deposit, we had many people leave and go to other places, friends got massive bed bug bites and their things stolen cause the door broke. The doors are so hard to open and make so much noise when people come home at night. The toilet door didnt shut and theres no hot... More

Do not book this hostel!! It is easily the worst place that we have stayed. We even checked out three days early because it was so awful! I have no idea why Busabout recommends this place, but if you are travelling with them you should pick elsewhere to stay. To kick things off the showers were icy cold, mouldy and... More
