Stayed here for three nights. Noise coming from the third floor made it difficult to sleep at night. My last night was terrible: I was awoken by the receptionist who was standing in the middle of the room assigning beds to three people. This would have been OK with me if it hadn't been at 2:46AM! YES! People were checking... More

This hostel is something a little different! I quite liked having to leave my shoes by the front door in the p[orch. I couldn't detect a smell of anyones bad fee or shoes and it also kept the hostel clean. It was a mare finding your shoes in the morning though unless you can remember where you left them. The...

Didn't enjoy staying here at all, the dorm i was in was treated like a hall way as the door didn't lock and everyone had to go through our room in order to get to the only available bathroom. It was very noisy at night so i didn't get much sleep at all. Not a bad location, quite close to... More

Before writing my review I'd like to reply to a comment I saw here. 1ºTaking your shoes off makes the hostel be clean, specially during winter. Shoes are placed in the entrance, in some shelves, organised, not in the middle or something. 2º The bathroom is not inside any room, is near reception and is big enough so 3 people... More

This is a very comfortable hostel - I commented to the staff that it felt like I was coming home each night after a day of sightseeing. It just doesn't feel like a hostel, and that's one of the best compliments I can give it. Duo Housing is a minimalistic hostel. There are not a lot of amenities, but it... More

My friend is allergic to dogs, there was no mention of a dog staying on any site before booking! We stayed in the... More

Stayed 2 nights, really friendly and helpful staff. Pancakes and coffee just awesome. Bathrooms are great and clean. Only one downside, 12man dorms can be a nightmare, especially when 1 person comes in drunk at 2am and 4am and wakes everyone up. Thick skin needed. All-in-all a great place to stay, worth every dollar.

location is very good. As for the condition, the bathrooms are very clean. They have no shoes policy for inside which helps with the floor but it could be better. Sunday barbecue offers really nice food.

Just as it is with hotels, hostels have many different options. If you're not used to it or just somehow afraid of staying in a hostel or anything, this is a great place to start. It is clean, well organized, has a good location... Pretty much everything you could expect from a hostel. Just think about a regular hostel with... More
