Great place, we'll definitely be back. Great open atmosphere, easy to meet people, and, for once, enough toilets and showers!


Do not stay in this hostel - the staff are rude, its not near the nightlife and there is zero atmosphere and its dirty.

Great hostel, the staff are legends, with a really chilled out atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.


Instand Sleep Backpackers was a great place to stay. We really enjoyed our stay, even though we stayed in the 12-bed dorm. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean, there's a kitchen available for cooking and you can buy drinks at the hostel bar. Instand Sleep is very well located with lots of cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs close by. And the staff was very, very friendly!


no breakfast :(

Schocking!!! I've been in almost 50 hostels around the world and never found anything even similar to that. The rooms are dirty, the floor never been cleaned Our window was broken and in the night it was freezing. The toilet was filled with cockroaches and smelled horribly.The sheets are holed by rats and not cleaned. Until here you can quite expect it. BUT the staff was incredibely rude, refused to talk English and charged us one night more for 40 minutes late check-out. PLEASE DO NOT GO.


Enjoyed the chilled out atmosphere.
