Casual spot for young backpackers. Near some nice restaurants and bars, and an easy tram ride to the city. Does get noisy on Friday nights because of music from the nearby bar.

I just stay in the Ritz for one night, but was the best night ever. I've been moving around from hostels and I have to say that definitely this is he best hostel regarding quality/price. They try to keep the kitchen tidy, plenty of activities during the week and the staff was super helpful and nice. I recommend this hostel 100% !!

Hi dear guests, Officially this review doesn't seem to meet nearly the overall situation of the hostel. Not sure if you felt that way or you had a bad week. We have HEAPS!! going on. Activities every day, common areas that suits perfect to meet people, free dinners and gatherings to meet other backpackers and so on. Hope to see another time here so you can see the real hostel... Safe travels.

This is a really nice hostel with a great atmosphere & really friendly easy-going staff. It's in an amazing location, close to the beach but easy to get to the city centre as well with a tram stop right outside. The rooms are really clean & spacious, everyone has loads of space to put their stuff unlike some other hostels and the common areas are pretty decent. It's a really fun & sociable hostel to stay in :)
