The hostel is a really cool place and I had a nice stay. Unfortunately, when I got back home and I checked my credit card statements, I realized that I was charged twice the price of my stay. I've written many times to the hostel staff to have an explanation and be refunded, but I've always been ignored.

Such a cool spot! Friendly staff and clean rooms! We would certainly stay again. We stayed in the Library room and loved the space...a little close to the coming and going crowd so if you want to sleep late it may not be the spot for you. The area is safe to walk around during the day, but don't walk... More

We loved our stay here! It was a big highlight of our trip. The outdoor common area is out of this world and really really cool...a great place to hang out feeling the vibe and meeting interesting people from around the world.

Three of us stayed in the library room. Very comfortable place with books to choose from. Our room had window air conditioned and a fan. Had a shower room and separate toilet space, wish they had fans or windows. Shared kitchen had everything we needed. Free breakfast pancake ingredients to make your own were awesome! Great vibe outdoors. Met some... More
