The location and cleanliness was amazing, though the security was a little slack. The staff didnt help much when it came to seeking information regarding the city, but with hostel facilities they were really helpful. Its certainly value for money.


This hostel buy far was the best I've ever been in. I would definitely come back and recommend this hostel to anyone. Thanks vibes for a wonderful experience.


Clean the rooms, bigger showers, more intelligent staff, clean the rooms

daily cleaning, showers have standard size for a human being to have a good shower and the intelligence of our staff may not be of your bussines as long as we help with the questions you need. Maybe you need something more than a hostel , a good five star hotel Im sure will make you happy and maybe will have more intelligent people for you. thank you


DO NOT STAY HERE! We initly booked 3 nights and left after 1. The manager was rude to us as soon as we arrived and showed us to a dilapidated room. When we returned after dinner around 1am he came in opened the door to the dorm and walked in with a flashlight multiple times. He stood in the doorway and shone a light at all the beds. We left in the morning

Well, thank you for such a "smart" comment it is obvious your frustration for being kicked out of the hostel and blacklisted after trying to get a person you just met on the street in a shared dorm for different purposes.


This hostel is soooo dirty and the toilets are unbelievable. They fit 2 showers and 2 toilets under the stairs. So they are very small you cannot turn around. The doors of the toilets are a joke. If you are 1.75 you can see the person inside. It is also very dirty. They never clean!! The welcome drinks dont exist anymore. It is just to attract people. Dont believe it. And dont except any rest because they party all night long and you can hear them from your room. There is also no breakfast.


Great location, friendly owner, and nice bar!

Amazing hostel. Incredible staff, great pool. Very clean. Perfect rooms. Atmosphere was great. Only negative - the purchased food was terrible. I think the chefs need more training. I couldn't eat my pesto pasta. If the kitchen served better food this place would be perfect
