We stayed with a couple of friends for a long weekend in HomePlus. I can honestly say that this hostel has the most welcoming environment I have ever stayed at. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and it is amazing that they join the guests for the pubcrawls - which I recommend for everyone, so much fun!! The hostel is clean, the kitchen is small, but it is stuffed with spices and basic cooking ingredients for the guests to use. There are free dinners also included in the price, a plus that I hardly experienced anywhere else, the food is heartwarming, and it creates a great vibe to meet other travellers! It is an extra, that it is made by the lovely manager of the hostel :)
I can highly recommend to spend at least a couple of days in this wonderful place!
