This is a good place to stay for the price. It's not terribly clean, but staff are friendly and there were never queues for facilities. It can be quite noisy, with guests remaining in the common areas drinking loudly until early morning on weekends, so bring earplugs! Otherwise, a great place to stay and I'd definitely return. The surrounding area is trendy with great bars and restaurants as well as weekend markets that are only a 5-10 minute walk.

Go Now has the unfortunate reality they are a 'metro based' establishment located in a stiff residential location. compared to other backpackers i have stayed at the common area,s and seating etc. is rather uninviting and the 'lock-up rules 'of the chairs etc at 10pm rather drab and stiff. (why surounding residents would expect to live in inner city yet expect suburban quite is a mystry to me). ? also offstreat parking is advertised is the only reason i booked. yet is poor arrangment. and setup

Nice enough quiet hostel. Beds creaked and squeaked a lot, door locks didn't seem very secure. No lockers in rooms. Breakfast was ok, coffee and some cereal would have been nice

reasonable price for this hostel. hot in summer, not very clean when it comes to bedroom. However it is cheap for living so do not expect so much when you do not want to pay so much.

Unlimited free wifi, but it did disappear on me a lot. The kitchen was no good with no glases, few uttensiels, few forks and knives and plates. There was no space left in the fridge. Room and bedsheets looked dirty. I was in an upper bunk which was very hard to reach due to placement of a board. Atmosphere was lovely though and reception liked to help.

Aircon not working in our room and a little cramped overall. Otherwise a good spot :)

Owner Comment (Hide)
I am so sorry for Aircon not working. Actually We check the Aircon and it works. All room Aircon will turn on automatically at 9:00pm and turnoff at morning. The public area will open Aircon during the morning. We are so sorry we have time limited for the aircon due to high expenses for the energy fee. Really Sorry.

Good Hostel, clean and serious. It's looks like a family, and not a big Backpackers where everybody appeared drunked. Also, there is the air conditional in the rooms!!! Paul, the guest, is very cool.

Before you stay here; think about this: you will stay with around 60-70 people in 15 rooms and share the bathroom and kitchen. They say internet is free but prepare yourself for no internet. The rooms are too small, warm and not clean -especially beddings-! There are so many rules that you can't even breathe. I wouldn't recommend you this place. We tried somewhere else after this place; it was just like 5-10$ more expensive per night but A LOT better. So, THINK TWICE!
