The hostel is just in the center, 50m from everyday fish market. The staff was really helpful and nice, making me feel just like at home. Only thing one could complain a bit is the breakfast, witch is tea/coffee, croissants, cookies, but well... I haven't really been in a hostel before, where the breakfast have been brilliant, so no worries.... More

I was on a university field trip with about 45 people. I have been to a lot of hostels and this one was great. Staff were very nice and welcoming and it is right in the centre where everyone hangs out so it is super easy to socialise and get a feel for the place. The rooms were basic but... More

Lively, ie very noisy place. A few feet away from a freight train. Very noisy bar downstairs until early hours or morning. Very noisy air-con units. We all got bed bugs. Often no hot water. Breakfast is stale bread and instant coffee. Food in evenings is reasonably good. What more do you need to know???

We ate here one evening as we were keen to see if it lived up to the hype. The food was pretty good (we had pizza), but we have had better. The underground river is worth seeing too. The place is popular with young people and families. I can't comment on the hostel as a place to stay.

Worst hostel ever. I left after the first night and didn't bother with the remaining night. I booked another place. I caught a man in his late 30's looking over the cubical whilst I was taking a shower. I got out and got dressed and went to get staff and waited outside the cubical. When he came out the man...

I am quite old for these kind of places but I have to admit it had everything I really needed: shower, and bed. I slept with earplugs really well and the people who work there were very kind and helpful. there is a small breakfast for if you early enough which is just enough toget you going.

This review is only of the restaurant and live band, which were both fabulous. If we'd wandered where the heart of the city was in the evenings they were here. It was a massive ghetto street party. Haven't seen one of those in a while. The vegetarian food was superb, and despite the massive crowd the waiters would appear out... More

We only went to the bar here because we had rented an apartment nearby. Great place for a beer. Nice music and atmosphere. Wad surprised by the belly dance routine but it was entertaining. Service good. Avoid the mojito though, very poor which is strange given that the fresh limes are so good in the area.
