Great location, helpful staff. Clean and quiet. There is no common room to socialize in. 3 computers are available for guest use plus free wifi. Safe deposit boxes are available for small items like a camera and passport, but not big enough for a laptop.

Great hostel with very clean rooms and friendly staff, the breakfast was very nice. Rooms were a bit small though for sharing with 4 people

The Hostel is very well located. Some member of the staff are good and the breakfast is nice. The bedroom is quite small and there isn´t room for the bags, but the shower is very good. There isn´t a common area to hang out.

First of all, the hostel is all in all an awesome value. Although it has to be noted that there are no security lockers in the room, and the ones at the reception (free ones) are very small (for little valuables) and only 3 larger ones, where you can barely fit a 15" pc (but it fits). Appart from that, awesome location, staff, an ok breakfast (included) and did I mention the awesome value? Would recommend.

The kitchen facilities were a little disappointing and as this hostel was busy there was extremely limited space to cook and eat afterwards. Other than that, everything was wonderful

The cleanliness was very very poor. The room was dirty, the sheets also and the bathroom not very clean at all. Also the towels were very dirty. The hostel needs to improve their cleanliness a lot because is located in a very good area. Te staff were nice but specially the men at the front desk were not friendly at all and all the time were asking if we can pay now, since I told one of the ladies I was going to pay in the check out. So it was very annoying from them keep asking about it.

It was an okay hostel, the rooms smelled old, I had a toilet in the room so it was good. The breakfast was nice, and location was really good, close to republique subway station with 3 lines. Well, it's good enough.

* Kind staff always ready to help. I needed to extend my stay and they were eagger to find a solution. I was upgraded to a 4 people room without extra charge. I felt at home. * Familiar ambiance although not the typical hostel's atmosphere for very young people because socializing space is small. * Correct cleanliness in rooms and toilettes * Central location because it is near Republique Place, very good transport * Breakfast is correct and there is always extra bread for lunch

I stayed for 3 nights in this hostel. It is located at a pretty good location near to Republique metro station. They have safe boxes at the ground floor which was a very good and convenient option. Also they served breakfast every morning which is included in the cost and it was good. The staff was pretty helpful and caring. I would recommend this hostel.

The shower is strange...reminds one of public swimming pools. Nightlamps at each bedside would be a plus in dorms.
