A really great party hostel to stay in, the owner Alex and staff Shane were brilliant at making sure that everyone had a good time here, can't fault them for partying! However, there seems to be a persisting problem with bedbugs here, to the extent they have antihistamine tablets behind the bar... Although when we woke up in the morning... More

Everyone who works there is amazing. They are as friendly as you can get. There is a sense of comfort when you walk in and the location is very convenient. When i was there, the owner took everyone out to bar and treated us very well!! Once again, very generous, fun, and bonded! staff is awesome !

I am not exaggerating when I say that this place is the BEST place for budget travelers. Clean rooms, well-maintained bathrooms, comfortable beds (with pillows and linen provided) and common area for drinks (water, coffee and tea compliments of the establishment) and socializing with fellow roomies and owner. I regret not being able to indulge in the owner's hospitality (and... More

If you want to make new friends and have an amazing time, you should definitely stay at couzi-couji. There are always nice people to hangout with, and you feel welcoming the second you step in at the hostel.

I stayed here on the recommendation of a mate who know the owner. I had the best time with Alex and Shane who took me out and made sure I had a grey first night as I was the only one on the hostel at the time. They had just reopened after having a clean out from a bed bug... More
