Great to stay. Friendly staff and loads of nice travelers to meet. I even fixed the tv :)


This was the worst hostel I ever stayed in: - misleading information on their webpage - for instance, they say they offer free shuttle to the airport, however, as it turned out, it is free only for pick up -for the way back to airport they have 'very affordable' shuttle for only 17 dollars.- Also, rooms are not cleaned properly and there were several animals in our bed - we informed management about it, but they did not seem very concerned. - kitchen was horribly dirty - unfriendly stuff


Good hostel. A bit out of the city but the shuttle bus goes there every hour. The kitchen and the bar are really nice and with good equipment. the staff is friendly but the travel desk sucks. They don't help you at all.


It's not very clean. It very close to the airport and a taxi is cheaper than the airport shuttle. A bar is part of the hostel and it's very load!!


Would definitely stay here again, big pool, nice kitchen, clean rooms, we stayed in a doublebedroom-really cheap, nice specials like $3 meals and the free shuttle to the city every hour till 3am in the morning

The twin room had an unpleasant smell.. Location wasn't very good but the shuttles every hour made it okey! Free breakfast and nice staff!
