The location is great, close to the beach and a few blocks from the main street with shops, bars, & restaurants. I felt safe the whole time. It was relatively quiet. There are only 2 bathrooms for about 20 beds so there was some waiting and they were often dirty with no toilet paper. The Lockers are spacious but the mattresses aren't comfortable. There's no kitchen use and tiny common areas. The wifi is good enough to use the rooms. Overall it's good value but very basic.


This hostel is only about the location. The rest is very average! Very small hostels with barely a common area. I used it just to sleep and that was ok.


The value that i payed to stay in Karisma does not worth it at all. Except for the location, this hostel is the poorest that i have been in all my life. The people of the hostel just want to make money, they are not interested in transmit confort to their hosts
