“Belated Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

A very budget and basic hostel. Rooms where clean although they are very small and the receptionist was very informative and helpful. Location is great as it's close to everything you need. As with most hostels all you are paying is a bed for the night - if you want anything else stay in a hotel!

We like this coffee shop as it is away from the main city centre/red light and the riff raff. Good size shop with a seperate smoking room. Staff are helpful and attentive and no one makes anyone else uncomfortable. They have a menu which tells you how strong each type of weed is and can make recommendations for you. The coffee here is bloody good also. Definitely recommend...

The staff at the coffee shop were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about their product and some of the best inventory around. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, but the atmosphere and vibe was great. They have nice snacks and munchie food and everyone was as friendly as can be. I would certainly recommend a visit.
