You're not getting anything fancy, but you're not paying for anything fancy either. I stayed in the women's dorm with AC. It was rather empty when I was there and one night I was by myself (always nice!). The breakfast was great and the front desk boys are very kind and helpful. I felt very safe the entire time I...

This was probably the worst hostel we've stayed in. Having said that, the city itself doesn't seem to offer that many quality alternatives. The fruit in the morning was good, as was the breakfast patio - but that was about it. The standards are low, and the service is a medium on a good day. If they're still running the... More

So our group of ten organized our World Cup Trip far in advance, and this was our first destination. We paid for rooms with working air conditioning and private bathrooms, which we sort of got. We spilt up into girls and guys bathrooms, and our girls bathroom had a shower with just a wand that didn't stay up on its... More

This was a very well located hostel about 5 minutes from the opera house and historical central square. My room was clean enough but there was no friendly hostel vibe here. I met people outside of the hostel rather than in it. The worst part: the staff. The guy behind the reception was lazy, as already mentioned by other, unfriendly... More

The guy in the reception was really unpleasant. He was on Facebook and looked so bored to work with us. He was important for him to show how much he doesn' t like his job ! We booked a twin private bedroom, but when we arrived in the room after paying the night and the deposit, he explained us that... More

I just wish I had never been there. Really! We gave up on sleeping there and escaped to a near hotel. I've booked a double room with shared bathroom and the room was really awful! It smelled like mold so badly it gave me allergies. The shared bathrooms at the first floor are just nightmare. They only have cold water... More

- Staff: very unfriendly,impolite, lazy staff. Everything you ask for seems to be to much for them (for example: calling a taxi to the airport, helping to find something on the map, giving recommendations for local restaurants) . Although there are heaps of them hanging around all the time- but they just feel like guest and not like staff. Most... More

We only stayed here for one night before we took a pre-arranged jungle tour. Stayed in a double room which was fine for what we needed, nothing special (hostel quality). Location is good and walking distance to the opera house, bars and restaurants. It was raining a lot so didn't get to take advantage of the outside patios/terraces. Breakfast was... More

We originally tried to find a different hostel but after getting lost, stumbled on this. With it being a Hostelling International hostel, we expected it to be of some decent standard, but no. The staff were bad, especially Erik (or something along those lines) who was arrogant and cocky and quite argumentatve to most people we saw him serve. The... More

The staff speak English, the rooms are moderately clean, and the building is interestingly designed. It is located close to the centre of the city, and buses stop nearby. Some reviews have complained about the noise: this was not a problem; it is very quiet. I did see a rat rubbing around - that's probably the worst thing. If you're... More
