“Nice and new, but terrible atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

I had high hopes for this hostel. First, the good: it's new, clean and everything still looks nice. The wifi is decent and reaches throughout the building.

The bad:
It is LOUD. The walls are super thin, and you can hear every tiny thing that happens in the hallway. And, since this place attracts a lot of drunk backpackers, there's a lot of noise. The first night I was there, there were people literally screaming in the halls at 2am, 3am--and then, when everyone in the building had finally gotten back to sleep--at 5am! I know the hostel can't control the people who stay there, but when there are people yelling in the halls at all hours of the morning--and the sound echoes through all of the floors, so the front desk person definitely heard it--I expect that the staff would ask them to be quiet. They didn't, and the noise went on forever. Worst night of sleep in any hostel, ever, and I've hosteled in over 40 countries.

Room Tip: No matter how entertaining it might seem, don't choose the "Japanese sleeping cabin" r...

I would surely reccomend this place. Been in a lot of hostels lately, and this is one of the best! The only downside is, the street corner it is situated on iis quite busy, but I expect it to calm down at night.
