I would have to say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. I stayed in Gastama for two weeks while looking for an apartment and loved every minute. The staff are out of this world amazing and everything in the hostel is new and clean. The staff really make your stay, but that's not to say that everything else isn't great. The kitchen/common area is large and fully equipped, the showers have great pressure and the dorms are very comfortable. Highly, highly recommended. A++
The staff made it for me. Very friendly, helpful, and always down for a chat. The Translate Bar was very cool, I enjoyed my time there and the owner is a very cool guy. I think the hostel/bar is awesome. The only this I didn't like was the shower size. They are a little small. But they got the job done.
