The bf and I stayed in the matrimonial ensuite. At first glance, we were a bit underwhelmed but it seemed okay. We quickly realized there was little privacy since the doors offer no sound insulation whatsoever. You can literally hear EVERYTHING. It doesn't have to be someone/thing loud. As such, our "relaxing" weekend was rather sleepless. We payed extra to... More

It wasn't something extraordinary, but that is a hostel. The good points were that it was clean, staff speaks english, they have wifi in common areas. The minus is the only plug for the room and anyone can actually enter the hostel.

The hostel is well located. It`s a good place to meet and make friends. But the problem begins when you need help from the staff. They don't know the city, because most of them are foreigners, and when you need any assistance they are useless.

Did not even want to leave my soap on any surface in case it might get ruined. No warm water from showers, 1 out of the five showers actually work. Accommodates around 100 people, so the amount of showers do not accommodate anyone. Only one power outlet in a 10 person bedroom. Anyone can get in, even during night time... More

The service is fine, staff are very friendly and helpful, everything looked impressive cleaned, even the shared bathroom which is a huge problems in other Hostels.... More

My friend and I arrived here late one evening and that is the only reason we stayed the night. We asked for the cheapest beds (which were quite cheap) but that was a mistake. There were so many beds in the room that the poor people sleeping on the top bunks ( like myself) did not have a ladder to... More

It's a really nice place! I recommend ask for a room away from the lobby because it has music until 1:00 am! It is an awesome hostel, with breakfast, tv room and a lot of bathrooms! The hostel is in the downtown so everything is close to there!
