“Some bad points, but a pretty good place!”
Reviewed May 28, 2006

The plumbing isn't always that reliable, and the shower tends to flood the bathroom, but it's a clean (VERY clean), secure hostel with no curfew and an option on private rooms for up to four people if you don't want to go in a dorm. There is very, very little space in the dorms, and they can feel a little claustrophobic until you get used to them.

The rooms for up to 4 people are really nice and well worth paying a bit extra for. Again, there isn't a lot of space, and the decor (dark blue and white) can make you feel a bit suffocated.

We got a shuttle to and from the airport, which worked well. You are very close indeed to a metro, post office, supermarket and ATM, and there's a Western Union not far away, as well as markets once a week. The area is not the poshest - I got mugged on the metro, although I think that was my own stupid fault for not watching my bag carefully enough.

The lack of a curfew is a real bonus, as is the 24-hr staffing. There is fast internet whenever you want it (without the MASSIVE queues you get at places like the Yellow Hostel), and it's not too noisy at night. The kitchen facilities are limited, but have all you need. The lounge area's not terribly comfortable, but eh. The big bonus of the Youth Station is that - although it's really a pretty small hostel - you get an amazing mix of people, languages and cultures. There's a great buzz. I would recommend it - as long as you're travelling with people you like!
