we had the double bed private room which had a wonderful view on the plaza! beautiful hostel, full of light and colors! but beware, it looks like most dorm rooms don't have windows!


Unfortunately although in a great location Parklife is let down by its lack of cleanliness, facilities and general care for backpackers. The toilet kept breaking, the showers were terrible, the atrium had a distinct pigeon smell and when our room light kept flickering when off the fix was to take the light out of the wall! We found much nicer, more value for money hostels close by.

This hostel was really nicely decorated and the kitchen was very well stocked, however the shower was boiling hot and had terrible pressure. Good social areas but it was very quiet while I was there


On this location you'd expect a 4 star hotel and not a hostel like this. Its really good right on the main square of the city. Rooms are nice, bathroom and kitchen could be a little nicer but overall one of the best worth-for-the-money hostel ive ever been to. Go there!
