Stayed here after a long plane trip from south America. The receptionist was very polite and friendly and made sure I had a quiet room to get over my jet lag. The bedroom was fine, very comfortable beds and looks like the room had just been painted. The bathrooms were clean and so was the kitchen. Everything is cleaned at... More

Reception and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. Kitchen and lounges were very clean and tidy. Location is good close to centre and it is the only... More

I had a fantastic time here after having bad experiences at Nomads. The staff are really helpful and the other guests are really nice. The usual hostel facilities are maintained and cleaned well, the kitchen is a cool place to hang out as it has very comfortable seats and well stocked with pots and pans and cutlery etc. The hostel...

This is the worst Hostel I ever been in my life, every place have a nauseating smell. The common areas are dirty. The people who is in charge of clean the hostel lives there so you can assume that they do his job without enthusiasm. In the kitchen where you suppose to store your food is plagued of flies.

I've stayed in hostels all over the world and never have I been to a more inhospitable, draconianly managed place. There are hidden fees and extra charges for almost everything. $50 key deposit, $10 parking, $10 to print off a proof of adress form, $2 just to use a mug! I missed checkout by an hour an they stung me... More

A cool place to meet new friends and find work. I stayed a here a few months and it was well run and clean. You do get some untidy people in the dorms but that is to be expected in all hostels. The receptionists are fun and hang out with the guests. Facilities are excellent and the kitchen is one... More

Booked a full week on booking.com for this hostel which turned out to be the worst hostel we have stayed in in a year of travelling. Upon check in we had to pay a higher rate than our booking rate on the internet "because you can stay a maximum of 3 nights in the 12 bed dorm". Our first night... More
