If you like smoking inside & the room being next to the common area which is very noisy you'll love this place. If you also love not being able to shut the window due to the heat which is the only method of blocking above mentioned, You'll really love this place. Don't stay here, horrible

One double bed was under construction. I woke up in night thinking it must have been mosquitoes. The guy at the reception gave me OFF gel, he was really nice... More

We had to wake someone up who seemed unsure as to why we were at the door with bags... very odd. We even had a reservation. Upon arrival the bathrooms had clearly... More

My boyfriend and I booked a private room at this hostel Thursday for two nights in anticipation for the weekend when most places fill up. Online they said although it is not necessary to give your credit card information, if you do your reservation will be 100% confirmed, so we did. Upon arrival Friday at 1pm which is check in...

First of all, we reserved 2 beds in a dormitory via internet and specified that we would arrive late in the evening, and the hostel had confirm this reservation. When we arrived, the guy at the reception tells us that the... More
