Hi, Whenever I stay in choice plaza. I enjoy a lot it is the place where I love to spend my quality time with my friends. And all the staff were very nice and specially Dennis and Yatin who are the receptionist in Choice plaza and, It is good to have a manager like Valeria in choice plaza she is the nicest lady I ever met.

Impressed by how often the staff cleaned the bathrooms. Even at midnight. Which unfortunately was necessary because many of the guests often left the bathrooms a mess. No respect for their fellow travelers. It would be nice if the hostel could provide paper towels for hand drying. There was soap at the common sink, but no towels. I understand protecting the environment, but the counter was always wet. The only bad thing was the bed. Very uncomfortable. Flipping the mattress didn't help.

Smelly, filthy and very noisy. Anyone can walk in and out of the place. No facilities.


Friendly staff. Great location. Kitchen was small considering everyone that was using it, but did have all the necessary cookware. Rooms were small but ok. First floor lounge is a good hang out. Rooms are quiet upstairs.
