We stayed in animation city hostel for 6 nights and are very happy we picked this one for our stay. The staff is really friendly, gives you nice tips and always takes the time to answer your questions. At almost any time there is someone in the hostel, we arrived around 01:00 AM but this was no problem at all.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel crew are amazingly friendly, rooms and common areas are cleaned daily and the ambience in the hostel is so friendly. Don't bother to bring a towel, as there are freshly washed towels for all guests. Highly reccomend it
