This hostel was really excellent. The lobby is a cat cafe (adorable) and the staff is SO helpful. One of the girls sat down with a map and highlighted routes and attractions in the area. The rooms are as expected for the price, and there are air conditioned units. Great service, great location, great experience.

Arrived early around 5am, and as we had arrived earlier than planned had not notified the hostel we would be there as they said they would have made sure someone was there to check us in. When reception opened the lady commented that we must be exhausted and grabbed our bags ( lovely gesture ) and led us to our... More

The staff here are so nice, welcoming and attentive it really made our stay that much more special. They gave us colour coded maps of the city and recommended so many things to do. These ladies went above and beyond for us. The rooms are clean and perfectly nice, not luxury but the price is very good for what you... More

We stayed for 5 nights. The warm welcome everyone describes is excellent. The beds are decent. The fan instead of a/c was sufficient. The windows that didn't close is just crap. The rooms are on a court centred by a fountain that runs all night. So for a light sleeper it's not great. And that with the doors that don't... More

As others have said, the girls running the place are vey helpful and sweet, but many other places have great hosts and I wouldn't choose this place based on that. I was a solo female traveler and the long walk to the old town was not great, especially when there were no bikes available and I didn't want to pay... More

Reviews are correct about the staff, very very helpful and they sit and go over the nearest food spots and landmarks. They don't have free breakfast or food but they have a cute coffee shop (coffee cat). btw-they have lots of cats (11 i think), inside the main area, which looks like a college hangout-its cute. rooms are clean, decent....

The accommodations were very clean and newer looking. The staff were absolutely incredible. The girls working there provided us with a very detailed highlighted map upon arrival, which showed us all the major attractions in the area. They also provided us with extensive information regarding things to do, and helped us book numerous tours and transportation. The only thing I... More

We have spent about four weeks time at this hostel during multiple visits. Our most recent visit was in April of this year. We love the ladies here and they keep us coming back. They will have you laughing and are there to help you make the best of your stay. They even went so far as to bring us... More

My favourite hostel so far! Rooms were clean and well maintained, and cleaned everyday! There is an ensuite on the balcony. The staff are incredible, so helpful and polite, any issues or questions and they'll help you out - where to eat, what to do, booking tours for you, making sure the taxis don't rip you off etc. Great!
