Excellent and helpful staff and location is very secure. Although it is very accessible to alot of bus lines the property was farther then i expected from some of the sites i planned to visit. The room i stayed in had a very damp smell to it, upon looking around to the base of the rooms and bathrooms there was heavy mold issues which would explain the smell of the air. The shower was very small and the shower curtain had mildew on it which made me uncomfortable while cleaning.


This place was great! It was very clean and such a great experience. Everyone was so friendly. The only downside was being unaware of a 30$ deposit for towels and linens. You get it back when you give them everything back though. Also, the staff had no "change" for our payment which would be difficult if you don't have exact change. Overall great experience, very clean!


We really enjoyed staying at Botanic Hostel. The hostel is very clean, the bed is confortable. I wanted to stay all day lying on the super confy couch at common room. Great atmosphere!! The owners are very helpfull as well as the other staff. Only be carefull about the sandwich maker.
