Very nice hostel overall. I liked the curtains in front of the bunk beds for added privacy and free lockers big enough for suitcases. The bathrooms are located outside the room, but showers are ensuite, which was kind of weird. There is a nice kitchen and lounge room in the lower level. I thought the age range was 18 - 35 but this place operates as a hotel so they allowed a family to stay in the same room I was in. I did not like having a 10 year old in the same room. Friendly cat outside :)


Really lovely staff, convenient location, and funky vibe.

This is probably one of the best hostels I stayed in. It's clean and gives some privacy even in mixed dorms - each bed has curtains, and a little light inside. Among other positives: no shoes policy works, morning breakfast buffet is inexpensive, and location is very close to Havatas bus which connects you to both airports.

In theory, the hostel is great. It has a large breakfast buffet, okay dorms with heaters/ AC/ bed curtains (not everywhere), lovely staff, ... but, for me, (and I've slept at a lot of hostels) there was something missing I can't quite put into words and it cannot compete with other hostels with +90% ratings I've been to, so, unfortunately, I couldn't help but be a bit disappointed. (However, I guess you can't really blame the hostel for its rating.)
