A winner! Perfect location in a superfun neigbourhood, super clean, good rooms, breakfast included etc etc! Staff vary from brilliant (especially Ryan and the girl) to not so talkative and not so helpful. It could do with cosier, more inviting common areas but they are working on it. Keep up the good work!

Perhaps it is important to open earlier the breakfast, specially for who is gonna travel. Some fruits will be appreciate. Very small room.

I've stayed in worse places but it was a disappointing experience all round. Wi-fi kept cutting out every few seconds, the towels that were supplied were dirty and perhaps worst of all, when I came back to reception after going out for an hour to retrieve a bag that had been left in the luggage storage, I found the room unlocked and unattended! The location is good but otherwise I wouldn't recommend the place for a long term stay.

Everything was great and awesome, the place was clean, the staff were friendly and very helpful. breakfast was good. I loved how the place was decorated very cozily. I guess the only minus point was that the airconditioning was a tad too cold at night (still wasnt warm after having a second blanket to double up).

Friendly staff, low cost. The room had the charme of a basement storeroom though.

Amazing staff, great breakfast, facilities are high standard. Only problem is really location however its great for airport travel also buses go past every 10 min to get you closer to the action

The hostel is relatively new, and that's great- the rooms are spacious and nice, breakfast is delicious, and the staff is higly motivated. I'd recommend staying here!

Fans need to be accessible. Rooms are stuffy with no air circulation and are unable to control temperature. Only other negative comment is that ALL the doors are squeaky and loud. Anyone coming or going or using a restroom is heard during all hours of night. Need some WD-40. On the positive side, the guests were all pleasant and kept to themselves.

A very nice place to stay. You feel safe and comfortable at Holidays Jones. You would have stayed more than two days if there were rooms available. I have particularly appreciated the decoration. Nice breakfast by the way. I recommend this place for all travelers who want to rest in a peaceful place.

Wi-Fi is not good, used to approach hostel staff but she mentioned due to large no. of customers, the Wi-Fi is weak. :( Hopefully they can improve on this when a lot of the customers are foreigners which do not have any phone data for accessing. Thank you.

Good hostel but very noisy, you can hear what's happening in other rooms pretty clearly.
