Suprisingly clean and organised. Enjoyed every minute of it.

You are very welcome - and we are very grateful for your comments. Cheers! Please come back soon..


The staff was very friendly and informative, the rooms were well kept and breakfast was great, but the black mold in my shower room was pretty off-putting :/ Other than that, I have no complaints!

wish there was a foosball table in the common area, it's big hostel but not a lot of socialization going on between those who stay there (more activities, or newbie welcoming party, or game night..)

Everything is very good except the laundry service is confusing.

Overall this was a very nice hostel for what I needed. I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm for 2 nights. Pros: Walking distance to major sites; subway station close by; much cheaper than hotel; breakfast included; clean bathrooms and no wait for bathroom; comfortable bed; big lockers; own light and charging station per bed Cons: doors open/close are noisy, room was stuffy
