Nice hostel, very clean and modern in a nice neighborhood and in a nice building. The showers were the best I have seen in a hostel in my 9 months of staying in hostels. The only problem was that sometimes there was no hot water (but this only seemed to happen to me). There would be a couple minutes of... More

I had breakfast one morning there and it was good. They do have bands on the weekends and give plenty of warning... More

I understand the mixed reviews of this hostel. I spent 3 nights here 23-26 April. For complainers: This is a hostel and you will find young crowed, people talking all night, being loud , and a lots of laughter. They coming to enjoy vacation not to concern about people. This is not for people who wants to go to sleep... More
