I stayed at this hostel a year ago, and liked it so much I came back. I was extremely disappointed this time around. The building is under construction; it happens, I get that. However, to charge the price they did for an entire floor to be sharing ONE toilet was ridiculous to me. There was no toilet paper by 2:00am, and there werent staff available to ask for more. If a hostel is in the condition it is in now (wires hanging from ceilings, ceilings exposed, etc) they need to charge less.

Great place but sleeping was difficult as the noise from the bar area was super loud past even 1am!

hello thanks for the good comments we're sorry for the noise at night, we'll try to be quieter in the future hope to welcome you again best regards phil


The hostel was in a decent location with a good atmosphere. There was only internet in the lobby which made it difficult to do work. There was also an issue with the toilet, there was no toilet paper in the restroom, I went down to the lobby to ask for some but they did not supply it until the following afternoon.
