There is nothing bad to say about this fabulous place. I had booked 3 nights and ended up staying 5 and it's almost with tears in my eyes that I had to leave. The first thing that "stikes" you when you walk in is how friendly the staff is. You feel so welcomed. In no time, they all get to know you by your first name.
This newly opened hostel has so much to offer. The staff (Chris, Sheila, Elia, Mary and Lynn, just to name a few) is adorable and very attentive to your needs. They really recruit the cream of the cream !
The place is a little gem. Rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. A/C works well, so as the wifi. The lounge is a good place to relax and breakfast is good (hostel type). This spotless hostel is located in a building that has just been renovated. Since it is in the historic district of Georgetown, they had to respect strict rules. The result is fantastic. Congrats !!!
I can't wait to go back to Georgetown because, before I die, I want to stay again at Syok@Chulia !!!
