Nui's bar/lounge is fantastic: pleasant design (concrete & wood), good vibes from both locals and international guests and more importantly great cocktails at very reasonable prices. The staff (barmen and receptionists) were friendly and contribute to make Nui's bar a destination of its own; definitely a place I would come back for a drink or ten. The same cannot be said of the hostel unfortunately. What works well for a bar doesn't for an accommodation. Bare concrete, nude walls and minimal furniture all add-up to create a freezing atmosphere. Cool & beautiful it may be, cozy it is definitely not. The dormitory's beds are large and comfy, what a pity the noise insulation is so poor I could hear a girl-group partying above. The showers/toilets are gender-separated, but you have to go through the mixed washroom area to access them. The shower I used was a swamp and had obviously not being checked by staff for some time. The top floor facilities are very good: a well equipped kitchen, place to eat, nice view over the river.
Considering Nui's rooms are not cheap for a hostel, I thought it was a disappointing stay. Next time, I'll skip the hostel but return to enjoy the bar!
