Bumped me off the female dorm without notice. Even if it's the same rate, you should endeavor to place solo travellers where they book and not just where it's convenient to put them in order to accommodate bigger groups. The place could do with some sprucing up too.

The beds are great, they are little cubby holes. Great for privacy. Staff where subpar. Not impressed by them.


Really good location and nice staff. Charly is a great man! Near to street art and many interesting places. 7 eleven in the corner and several places to eat.


The comments about the bed bugs is real, I am actually scratching the bites while typing the comments. The Uncle is cool but only talks to the girls, but the Indian guy is a cool guy though. I supposed to extend for one night but decided to just switch to other hostel because of the bites.


There was a mouse in the room. And toilets were aleays dirty. The room was good.


Cutest hostel dad ever; feels like home


Great beds, only downfall for myself is that I was on the end bunk so got no aircon and had a really uncomfortable sleep. Really helpful staff and good atmosphere. Would stay here again!


Brilliant location, lovely staff - very helpful with everything, awesome vibe
