Nice place to stay. The building has an historical vibe. Good staf, average breakfast, bad internet.


Great location with private parking area. The building is spacious. The accommodations are basic hostel fare. Only drawbacks were lack of screens on the window in the bathroom which encouraged mosquitoes to enter our room. We were also visited by a mouse in the night, attracted to some dessert we had brought back to the room. Lock up any food!


perfect will stay again on next visit.


overall to me, the hostel is nice, only the breakfast was limited (only 2 slices of toast and 1 slice cake). and it will be perfect if the hostel would offer free drinking water.


Overall, my companion and I enjoyed our stay. Located in the periphery of Georgetown, which we didn't mind as we had fun walking around and exploring. Room was pretty small, though bathroom was relatively big. There were not hot water readily available for late-night hunger pangs, though snacks were on sale. Not recommended for light sleepers; the walls were very thin. Our air-conditioning also started and stopped at regular intervals - seemed more like a setting than a technical problem
