Beds are very comfortable!!! The hostel is not the best for making friends. I'm very outgoing and made almost none. There are people who don't speak any English and they just talk in groups and stare at you all day


Overall the hostel was ok. There were 2 things that bothered me. The first is that there was no soap or paper in our bathroom, not very hygienic. The second and most important is that it wasn't super clean. The issue doesn't seem to be the facility but the people staying there. Every night I would see bags of food left in the hallways..... End result was cockroaches. Not a house pet I like to have!


Great hostel. Thanks for an amazing time!
