I LOVED LOVED LOVED staying here! Clean and comfortable rooms/bed. The ladies only bathroom was pretty amazing too! HOT showers with good water pressure. Breakfast is basic (cereal & toast, coffee & tea), but good! I would recommend this place to anyone!

I was there in November, and the large group i was with had a great experience here. The staff here are super friendly, it was beyond what my expectations were! There is this awesome indian restaurant around the corner that has great cajun chicken. The atmosphere is chill and the big room upstairs with the bean bag chairs was awesome

staff was friendly. It was clean and the lounge was a great place. Free breakfast is definitely a plus. Conveniently located. There are many coffee shops in the area with free wifi. There is a bike rental place right next door.

Traveling alone as a female usually is a little nerve-wrecking and staying in the female dorm here was completely anxiety-free. Huge rooms, huge space, bunk bed which was slight bigger and thicker than normal with sockets on every bed head and a personal cupboard, it isn't your typical hostel.

This place has an amazing atmosphere. I really love the lounge. Has a rather interesting bathroom. Didn't expect much at first but after I arrived, it went past my expectations. Definitely value for money. The staff were really friendly. Great place to stay. Located in the middle of Georgetown with plenty of things to do around the area.

My friends and I stayed here for the weekend in an 8-bed mixed dorm room. There were only 4 of us for the entire weekend, so it was great to get the space all to ourselves. The premises were clean, including the toilet/showers which were surprisingly clean for a hostel! The staff were really, really helpful throughout our stay. On... More
