Fantastic hostel, great start to the trip. Chill our room is essential!


We had a very nice stay! Liked the and the pub crawls.


This hostel is great, especially if you are looking for a party hostel, you will definetly get that here. We stayed in an 8person mixed dorm and there was plenty of room. One of the nights the air con wasn't working which made it hard to sleep as so hot but they next day it was fixed so no problems! One thing I would note; we booked a taxi to the airport though the hostel for $9USD and it turned out to be this unmarked vehicle that surely wasn't road worthy- with a very elderly man driving 😐


Really good location and a party hostel which is what we were looking for. However, it is false for this hostel to say it has air conditioning. There is one in the room but only allowed on at night and to the staff choose. It was cooler outside at night than it was in our room us asking staff to make it colder 3 times.


Excellent social hostel! would highly recommend. Rooms a bit warm as air con isn't the best.


The foyer smells abit, but apart from that I met some cool people there had a comfy bed. The shower was tricky to switch on and the A/C didn't really filter out the room very well. But we had a balcony on my room, and a bunch of v.nice people. Would definitely recommend


The location and staff are very good. Its a good atmosphere as well but this hostel made me to never ever again book a dorm. Backpackers are obnoxious. They dont care if you are sleep at 4am and will turn on the lights and make noise. Some will also wake up early to pack their bags 1 hour before departure because their tiny Brains never thought of doing it the night before. Bathrooms are Dirty. If you dont mind getting NO sleep then this is a place 4 u.


It stinks very Much!!!!!


Nice hostel, apart from the odd power outage making it hard to find your room. The place smelt pretty bad, but you adjust.


Well thought out hostel with decent bathrooms, big lockers, personal lights and charging points, etc. Great breakfast included, and there is a sociable atmosphere although it's heavily based around drinking. Downside for me was that the bunk beds weren't sturdy enough so people tossing and turning in the night could be disruptive. Well located in the backpacker area with most tourist attractions within walking distance and lots of cheap agencies around to book other trips. Helpful staff.


The beds are horrible in the dorm rooms. They make noises all night if someone moves just slightly. The beds are rock solid and uncomfortable. The breakfast was pretty good. If you're looking for a good nights sleep, don't stay here.


We came here for the partying, and that is what we got! The dorms are a bit grubby and smelly but we were expecting that. Although, they really do need to have pillow slips on the pillows, it is a bit too unhygienic without them. And the mattress stored in the roof can be removed on the bottom floor dorm! But overall, we had a pretty good time here


Extremely enjoyable experience at a very well sorted and we'll organised hostel. Also loose as

One shower/toilet in 8 bed dorm and no communal shower block was annoying. Staff were helpful though


Buddy parked next to the hostel and got his bike stolen so make sure u park right in front and lock up. Also they dont turn AC on til 5pm. Good place to chill and meet people before heading out on your adventure. Few breakfast and beer


Good location. Close to main tourist area. Walking distance to main attractions. Staff were helpful when booking tours.


i really liked this hostel! the location was perfect, in the middle of the backpackers district. this hostel is amazing for meeting new people; free beer between 7-8pm, so the bar is really busy! besides pub crawl every night! i really recommend this one!

Great hostel with very nice vibe. Not very quiet but fun and easy to Meet people


Great place to meet new people!


This hostel wasn't for me. Pros - good for party atmosphere, free beer HH, average breakfast, nice bathroom, chill room Cons - wrong conversion rate! (they rounded up to 23 when it's 22.5 on the USD...not much on 1 transaction but with 60+ rooms in the place, you do the math)...they tried to short me on my key deposit in the conversion, as well - 6-bed dorms are crowded, took 2 showers and neither were hot, they charge for towels, small beds, cleaning staff barrels in loudly as early as 8am
