Good breakfast and great service. Staff were great in helping me with my every need from booking a taxi to the airport. I would definitely recommend staying here.


Everything was good. The staffs were efficient but not that nice. Great free breakfast. Good place to meet other backpackers but the tour fee is very expensive. Just book from the next door travel agent


Stay here for the great downstairs area, with good food and perfect for meeting travelers. The travel desk' staff was very helpful and friendly, and not pushy at all for tours (didn't book any). There are different types of rooms, mine was at best average: small, no windows, damp smell and just a shower room on the same floor (no toilet). Very slow wifi during peak times.


This hostel was fairly good. The room I booked was advertised as 8 bedrooms, however it actually contained 10, which is a lot for one bathroom. The WiFi also did not work in the rooms or most of the ground floor area. The hostel is very clean and modern, however.


Hostel is meant for people who want to party, really wasn't my cup of tea.


This place is good for the social aspect if you want to meet others and the staff friendly. But not the best hostel I've stayed in. Cold showers everyday, cochroaches in the room and one night I saw a rat running around the ground level.


1st floor bath on the back block has a not functional water heater.

Great place. Friendly staff and good location. Large and clean rooms. Good social area upstairs with a bar etc that closes at 9:30 so if you do want to get an early night you still can (unlike the downtown location that has a full blown club downstairs). Easy booking facilities for lots of trips. Lots of cafe's etc around, definitely recommend.
