This was not a hostel. It was a hovel and dive. The place is disgusting. I wouldn't cook for my dog in the kitchen. Long term backpackers treat the place as though they love living in disgusting places. Very disappointed and left after one night and got refunded the rest of my stay. Staff are lovely but have forgotten they are there to run the place not be the friends of those staying!


We were greeted by the guy who runs the hostel, he could not have been nicer or more helpful However we didn't see him again. Kitchen was well stocked but dirty, whole place needs a clean. despite rules saying quiet after 11 there was loud music and shouting going until the early hours. there were no locks on individual rooms and the lockers were to small to fit a much in. The front door was also open most the time meaning anyone could walk in. Also saw a lot of drug use, not our type of people


This hostel is one of those places with subpar facilities but an absolutely awesome atmosphere, if you've ever been to a place like this, you'll know exactly what I mean. Mostly full of long term guests, but they're super friendly if you're just stopping in for a few nights. Definitely a party place on the weekends.


Lot of long-term stayers so not the typical backpackers atmosphere. Place is a bit run down


This is a small very friendly backpackers well located close to a frequent tram route.

Great place to stay, amazing staff, great location and good atmosphere. Always something going on. Lovely little garden where everyone sits and hangs out. Small and cosy so get to know everyone. Not like some of the bigger ones where it's hard to make friends. Have stayed here on 2 occasions now and loved it!
