    Arrived late and had a very pleasant stay. Very friendly people, very welcoming. Breakfast was nice, cheap and quick service. Beds were good, we slept like a baby. I give 5 stars for this hostel. It was clean and convenient for us. Would definitely recommend.

    Good location, very friendly staff. Cool hammocks outside every room. The neighbourhood is a bit dodgy after midnight so don't suggest walking around after that, but it's very cool during the day, close to restaurants and bars and near the graffiti neighbourhood.
