Staff helpful, good location and so on, but doesn't value for money. Beds are not so confortable, it is really hot inside the room, the hostel is near the church with the ring every 30 minutes, and just a bathroom shared for many rooms.


Very nice looking reception and restaurant area. Breakfast was fine, if expensive. We stayed in the annex at the back, which apparently has the better rooms. These rooms are clean, but small, very hot (ceiling fan only) and they feel somewhat insecure (although no real reason to say so beyond a feeling). Cold water only in the bathrooms, but the temperature of Liberia means this is all you need. Sink was not attached to the wall and only balanced on the pipes. It may be the only real option here


My only complaint was there was no hot water in the shower, and the shower seemed like it could have been cleaner, but I think it was just old.

Good hostel, cheap and okay for what you get. Strong points: cheap, nice staff, pretty lobby, good food at the restaurant. Weak points: No air conditionning in a tiny room when it's 35 degrees makes it hard to sleep well. One cockroach in the room but that is to be expected. Nothing much to do in Liberia, ok for a 1 night stay.


I find this hotel slightly pricey but the staff is very friendly, the rooms are small but clean, it feels safe and the location is great.

beds were not comfy at all


There was barely enough water to shower and the room was only big enough for the bed. But other than that it was a very centrally located place, near the central park, within easy walking distance to everything. It was quiet and peaceful. The restaurant was decently priced, and everyone was super friendly. There are plants in the common area, and it doesn't feel like you are in a bustling city. Overall I would recommend it.

You get what you paid for. It was adequate.


It was an alright hostel. It had a cute and tasty restaurant, but my tiny private felt a bit like a prison cell with grey walls and nothing on the walls, except a mirror which was nice to have. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest but was ok. The staff was very nice though and I'd stay there again if I had to stay in Liberia again.
