Fantastic apartment, fluffy towels. Great stove & utensils. Couch a tad small for 2 . TV in Lounge & bedroom. Quiet at night. Pool & spa excellent.

There was only 1 toilet for two 6-bed rooms on my floor. Otherwise it was handy for the city centre but semi quiet and felt safe/secure. Warm too, as the weather was beginning to turn chilly.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The other room on your floor is actually only a 2bed dorm, so there are 2 showers and a restroom for 8 people, best ratio for hostels in town.


Had a great stay at Capital View. Good location and clean, and the rooftop was an added plus. Met some great people there, and the staff was real chill and nice -- Stanley was quite the man! Except I would be careful when taking his advice for directions haha ;)

Check-in was smooth and the receptionist was lovely. We had to leave our luggage in the hallway because we arrived few hours prior to the marked check-in time. It would seem much safer if there were a luggage room for these occasions. The room itself was ok, nothing special but everything necessary was there. Although the bathroom was also ok, we had some problems with hot water - sometimes there wasn't any and few of us had to shower with cold water. Overall it was an ok and a basic hostel.


- Even though it was promised on the website, the wi-fi was not working anywhere except the reception hall! - There was mold in the bathroom - Bedsheets were not clean enough - There was constant noise coming from the washing room, which was always heard in the common living room and the kitchen.

Really nice place! Friendly staff and clean hotel!


The hostel is great.


I spent 2nights at this hostel,i booked a female dorm and on the last night we just got a guy roommate,he was snoring so loud i bearly slept that night.The staff was good,but it wasn't the cleaniest hostel.


We arrived after 10pm but were unable to gain access to the hostel because the email containing our door code was only sent on the morning of our arrival date. Being visitors from overseas our phones can't pick up emails unless we are connected to WiFi, so we were stranded outside for close to an hour before somebody on the roof terrace heard us shouting for help! Once we were let in, the chap who checked us in was really friendly and helpful.
