Very hot inside the room. Without infrastructure and expensive for what they offer


Not really a hostel you would spend much time at, beds pretty old and saggy, may give you back issues. WiFi only works near reception. In terms of value for money its not bad.


For starters, bad directions given to the hostel. When we got there, it took a while for the staff to notice us. We got into our room and the bed layout was a little strange, just 4 beds squished side by side. There was a shower in the room but it was very transparent and since we shared a room with two male strangers, it was more of a waste of space. Showers in the other bathroom had awful temperature control- went from burning hot to cold in seconds. Decent place for only a couple nights.


Great location, staff could have had better showmanship but as far as the hostel itself goes, very good!


The room we stayed in had a great deck to sit out on. The location was perfect, we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. There was only one bathroom/shower for our floor of rooms and it was kinda dirty and there was no hot water when we went to shower. All around not a bad place for the value!


Payed a lot for nothing. Terrible beds, no lockers and a very dirty bathroom etc


It's a central hostel, quite cheap for its location, the staff is friendly and the facilities are ok.


The bathrooms were really gross and the beds sucked but for a cheap option it didnt suck. It was a decent place for what you pay.


The hostel was average. We asked the staff for a good restaurant suggestion and when we went to the restaurant that was suggested we got scammed. Other then that it's a place to sleep, wifi does not reach the rooms.

It's very likely that I picked up some sort of insect from this hostel. I have had it confirmed that it was not a bed bug but nonetheless I got very bitten and had to call pest control to spray my home with insecticide.
