Good place but you really need two people to stay to get your value for money. Very well placed to the tourist section, the bus and downtown with access to Ricks place, a must visit. Dr Security, Kenny is as cool as they come, make sure you share a few words with him. Very tranquil surroundings which add to the feel of the place. Only issue I suppose I had was basic tea / coffee making facilities which were communal. Would've been better if you could even just say request a jug if you wanted

For a budget traveller to Mobtego Bay, from what I could tell this was the best option. Yes, a little out of the way but had the route taxis that pass by often enough. Otherwise a pleasant walk to Blue Diamond shops where more transport options are available. Great place to chill at night by the pool, if that's your thing , you're good ! Staff was good too, Kamar was a very chill and pleasant person to deal with. Keep up the good work !

Quite simply a major reason I keep coming back to Miami. Three words, location, location , location ! The pool and eating area are pretty good too. Jonathan always a pleasure to deal with ! Rooms are a bit worn and torn but if you want better, there's plenty of other ( more expensive ) options available !

For the price, you can't really fault this place though some may try.....Top location, always clean and cheap, especially the dorm rooms. Th sonly thing I could say is if you are a party hostel person, this probably isn't your place, it attracts older people and couples, go elsewhere i think its on 9th street if you want the party hostel.

Okay, this is a great hostel but I don't think its worth 94.....Cannot beat location the Mum and Daughter were great if not always around and the only other issue was no internet though there is a net cafe very very close by. If you are a budget traveller in San Juan DO NOT CONSIDER STAYING ELSEWHERE. This is the best you will find end of story, great view of the square and water as well. Again top location.

View Property Reply

I dont understand why you say; worth 94; if you payed $22 per night; You stayed in the dormitory section and the energy really just changes depending on the guest. But thank you for this comment "If you are a budget traveller in San Juan DO NOT CONSIDER STAYING ELSEWHERE" I guess all in all you had a good time.

This place is quite a find actually. Very well priced for what you get. Yes a tiny bit out of the way but very well served by the red line and the buses. Clean as well. plenty of things to do. i would say stay here for sure, though noise doesnt get down until midnight so bring earplugs if you want to sleep before then.

Okay this is a great place for people looking for certain things.....Top position for the beach and chilling out with a beer on the balcony...a million dollar view....Great staff ...Maria in particular. You are in the boutique area of Melbourne but a bit low on the backpacker vibe....Though if you dont want that its great, fun trendy pub below as well.

Was a nice place in many ways, good spacious room had air con that worked well and hot showers. The manager Hassim was a very helpful person who met me at the train station which was handy. The only really thing this place lacked was customers which made it a bit quiet...On the flip side though this made for a great nights sleep. Reccomended for someone who wants a good guide in Luxor as Hassim was certainly that, he really puts himself out there for the guest.

From what I hear from other travellers this is the place to stay in Cairo.Most staff speak English well and are only too prepared to help. Place is well located. The tours they organise seem to be popular as well, free airport pickup is a real bonus as well. You will feel a lot comfortable with your stay with George and crew, thanks!

THis place runs on the back of two people Casper and SAm. Up there with Batman and Robin, Laurel and Hardy, could re name them the 2 stooges......the female staff are pretty indifferent and are in stark contratst to the dynamic duo....A lot of fun to be had at this place but if you are looking for a solid nights sleep look elsewhere as its close to the road and noisy all night. Lots of guys though so not such a pick up joint.....One of the best party hostels no question, if this is your focus this place is a must do! Once more Sam and Casper show genuine enthusiasm you won't easily experience elsewhere!

Hosts Carlos and Artheur who works like a trojan are great, the only place to stay in Lagos doe anyone with some personality!

Not a party place but very good to chill out at, very relaxed. Bathrooms were tiny but most never really seemed to mind given the other positive points. Very well equiped kitchen with a pretty good view. Would reccommend to anyone wanting a friendly quiter type of stay.
