I stayed here with a large group during a tour and we were given a room with a key for all of us. It was nice to have our own room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hostel was of average cleanliness. I recommend brining flip flops for in the shower and walking on the floors. Also bring a... More

Many of the review comments listed are commenting the noise in the area being an issue; the noise of the bar below is the best reason to stay here. Such a fun place and full of locals. If you don't know the city and looking for a low cost to stay then this place is ideal as the restaurant below... More

We only stayed one night in a triple room with its own bathroom. It was clean, good shower, located very closely to the fish and fruit market. Buzzing restaurant and bar just on the corner. Parking spaces right in front of the hostel but not dedicated to the hostel. If you are lucky you have a spot to park. Driving... More

Its too expensivefor this money. It was too hot in room without air condition, its not really clean. Yes, its really cool restaurant in this hostel and its really great location, but nothing more. And its really noisy when the train just going near to it.

Very noisy environment, the bar is right next to the hostel. People party all the night, finding it was difficult to get to sleep. Bunk bed was smaller than regular size. So easy to hit the head. The only good thing is it is near the market. If you are planning to cook, it is an advantage. All the toilets... More

We actually didn't stay at the hostel, but ate dessert at the restaurant & quite enjoyed the live band & atmosphere. Not to mention, there is a 'creek/river' that actually runs through the city & underneath the building. When you walk up, there will be stairs on the right leading down. Go down & enter a dining area & turn... More
