9th May 2016

The hostel is super close to the subway and easy to find with thier directions. Their is no atmsophere as each room is in a separate room. The bed was comfy. Small pillow. Only one power point for a room of 4 people. I didnt use the shower. If looking for a cheap place to stay in HK for a night its not that bad. If you are looking to be left alone then this is the place for you.

The place is run by two Aussies who hire some locals. I really like this place. It had a chilled out atmosphere where you can play free pool and have some drinks. The view is amazing in the bar. They make pizzas and if you are lucky maybe some roast. I went diving and I had a great time. Lorenzo showed me my first wild seahorse and he pretty much did everything for you while diving. Cleaning and putting your dive equipment away . The price was excellent as well. Would go back!

I landed in Bali on the day before "Day of Silence" I had to stay an extra night as nobody was allowed to walk around Bali. The staff were very accommodating. They had to cook our food in the dark. Everything was in candle light as there were no lights allowed. The beds were big and soft. You have a power point in your bunk and a locker underneath your bed. There is even a curtain to give you a little more privacy. The hostel was clean. Close to the airport. Food was good. Pool was nice.

The hostel was nice and very clean. The beds were big and comfy. You get a locker or all your stuff. Staff were friendly and helpful. I like how they book activities for you. They have a book of things to see and do in Surabaya.

The hostel is super close to the Train station. The staff were friendly and helpful. I booked a tour through the hostel and I had a lovely time. Breakfast was excellent. Shower was cold :( Hostel seemed clean enough for me. My room was alright, enough for a one night stay.

I really liked this hostel. You have space under your bed for all of your stuff. A power point in your bed area to charge all of your stuff. Breakfast was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed and pillow were comfy. Your bed is kind of built into a wall, so it feels like you have a little room to yourself. With a curtain to add a little bit more privacy. Lots of things to do in the hostel from playing pool to video games. Plus they have a rooftop bar to drink the night away.

Thank you very much for the wonderful review! It makes it all worthwhile. Hope to see you again in Jakarta some time soon.

The staff were super friendly and helpful. They even bring your big bag up into the room for you and show you which bed is yours. The beds were comfy with fluffy pillows. And there is a socket for you to charge your electronics. All luggage goes under the beds so even in a 10 bed dorm there is plenty of space. The showers were hot and clean. The location is great, close to everything. Just be aware of the extra service charges for storing luggage for the day, etc

We stayed one night. My friend and I had mixed feelings. I didn't mind the hostel for the price we paid. The location is excellent as its close to all modes of transportation (bus station and train station). We weren't given keys for anything so we weren't sure how well the security would be but nothing was stolen as that's always a bonus. I liked the shower as it was hot and spacious but my friend did not. She didn't sleep well but i slept great. So this hostel really depends on what you want.

This hostel had everything I wanted. Comfy bed, fluffy pillow, hot shower, great atmosphere. It is super close to the beach and the staff were super friendly, helpful and could speak English great! Every bed has a power point to charge your stuff and there is a safety box to put your valuables in. What more could you want?

I loved that there where no bunk beds in the dorm room. Plus you have your very own cupboard that locks and its free!! The directions are a little confusing but once you get in Venice you find that all directions are confusing and the hostel does the best that it can do. Bed was comfy and the shower was hot.

The hostel is in a great location. Things to remember is that there is no kitchen, city tax needs to be paid at arrival and you have to walk up four flights of stairs to get to the hostel. On the positive side. Beds where comfy, staff was great as he told me where to go and cheap eating places!. Four set of keys to get into the building so you don't have to worry to much about people stealing your stuff. Ps its Rome, you are barely going to spend any time in the hostel anyways.

I was only in the hostel one night. Hot shower and comfy bed is all I care about! Staff was nice. Internet wasn't the greatest in the room. Had a bunch of Italian men wake us up at 4 am. Wasn't the happiest about that as I had to get up at 7am.

Somebody left their baggage on my assigned bed. I had to tell reception and they remade my bed. I like the idea of the hostel set up. I was in the 16 bed dorm the rooms were separated into blocks of four with washrooms at the end of the room. Breakfast is your standard continental with coco pops! I had a small issue with the shower. The lights are sensor and while showering the lights turned off. Mid shower I had to get out and find the sensor. Place was clean, staff were alright.

This was a nice hostel. Lindsay gave you a walk around the Hostel to let you know where everything is located. The hostel is only a short walk away from the bus and train stations (roughly 15mins max) . Waitrose is right next door.

I didn't stay long in the hostel but it had what I needed a bed and hot shower! Plus it was quiet. A place to hang clothes in the shower would be nice.

The hostel was spacious, the room was nice and ensuite. I love to hear people brushing their teeth at 8am. The shower wasn't the best as you had to wait awhile for hot water which is fair enough. I understand that it sometimes takes awhile for hot water to come through the taps. The bathroom floor didn't seem very clean as there was tons of hair in the drain and nowhere to put my bath stuff except on the floor. The toilet area was also dusty. Other then that I thought the hostel was good.

There were no bed sheets on my bed. But first the staff had to find out which bed was mine since all of them seemed occupied. There were popcorn kernels on my bed plus flyers. Staff had to find sheets for me. The hostel didn't seem very clean as in the bathroom there where dirty towels lying around and dirty cups.

The place seemed really nice compared to most hostels. The location is out of the way from Brighton but a bus ride can easily fix that. The clerk gave me a top bunk (3 bed bunk) when there was only two other people in the room (out of 15) so I had no problem switching to a bottom bunk. Breaky was like all the others cereal and toast.
