The hostel/staff were great and very friendly. The beds were comfy and room was nice to have air con. However there was a huge dead cockroach under the bed even after the cleaner had been in. The showers were quite disappointing, also the men's shower had a hole in the ceiling. Would probably stay again for that great price!


This is a great place! We only stayed for a couple of nights but would definitely recommend this. Great atmosphere with a good group of longtermers, great entertainment manager who gets people going and very clean. The kitchen is a bit small but time it right and you can still prepare your food. Recommended!


Very young


The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. However: It would be a good idea if this place offered enough towels so that at the end of the day you don't feel like the dishes are even dirtier after you wiped them than before you washed them. Also, hanging up more "forbidden" signs doesn't make the people better – rather the opposite, since you declare them to be your enemies. Also, an investment into more stable beds would be better than the cheapest option which just hangs through.


You have to pay 20$ when you forgot to dry your dishes. The CCTV Camera always spys on you. That was terrible :(

Kitchen had two cookers only one worked. So 4x hobs between 60 people.! No oven!!!! Women's showers only one worked properly. Between a lot of girls. Found myself waiting a while for showers at times. Atmosphere upon arrival not the best. Residents who stayed for long periods of time became too comfortable and made it hard for new comers to feel comfortable in rooms. Some of my things got stolen, although they checked CCTV and the culprit was asked to leave the hostel.

All in all the hostel is Ok. The kitchen is well equiped and you are fined 20 $ if you don't do your dishes which is good in my opinion. The kitchen is being closed at 10pm but unfortunately the common room not. In three of four nights I woke up at 5 am because drunk people where yelling through the common room and there's no door which can be locked for cancelling the noices. Aditionally you here the trains running even though my room was not facing the road/tracks. It is an ok hostel
