We stayed in a private double room, the whole place had a weird smell. The bed was made of concrete with a thin mattress on top, aircon worked fine and the room was generally okay, other than the dirty carpet. We waited at reception to order breakfast for about 20 minutes, and when the food came it was full of...

We stayed here only one night. There is free breakfast and good wifi but thats all. The hostel is rundown, it could look much better with a little bit of work and cleaning. We stayed in a private room (15 USD), super small. Bed was very very hard and full of mosquitos because the window doesnt close properly. They have...

We spent 3nights here, it was fine but wouldn't stay again. We stayed in a private double - the window was painted so we had no natural light and the bed sheets had holes in them. The staff - one lovely really helpful lady, one who didn't seem to be on the same planet. Breakfast is included - it's basic...

So I followed the high recommendations and booked two nights at the garden hostel. When I arrived, I couldn't believe my eyes for what a room I got. I payed 16 USD for a private room with a double size bed. In my worst dreams I couldn't imagine the room I got. There is no bed, but a hard Wooden...

Nice atmosphere! The backyard, where you can hang out is great. Even though they could do much more out of it. The colourful painting everywhere is very welcoming. The room was okay, pretty clean but the beds were uncomfortable. Breakfast is good and the suff very helpful. We liked it here!

The staff at Backpackers Garden are very friendly and assist with anything that you might need help with, even putting on a dinner for everyone at the hostel for New Year's Eve which was a great way to meet other people and for everyone to enjoy themselves. However, we were in a private room with shared bathroom and there were...
