    The staff is amazing and sooo so helpful; but I guess hostal guests should try to be more quiet at night. and In the streets, if u wanna go to drink and hangout is great, but if it is to rest for one night I would say try somewhere, all night was super loud on the street

    I like this hostel. In general everything is fine. I would just recomend to change the lockers because you should buy a special lock (which they sell in the front desk) to save your things.

    Very Good

    15 Aug 2019
    It’s hard to rate this hostel. It was great for meeting people and I had a great time but that could be due to luck of there being cool people there. The rooms were ok, beds could use curtains. What left me with a sour taste in my mouth was what a con the bar crawl was. It was designed purely with the goal of extracting as much profit as possible. And left everyone disappointed. Apart from that, staff were nice. Showers were good. Overall, was a great stay.

    WIFI IS AWFUL! After a long day walking around you want to relax in the afternoon, there is terrible wifi and hardly any service in the building. Besides this, the hostel was good. Be prepared to walk up a few flights of stairs or wait for the slow elevator. Close to the station and felt very safe in the area.

    Don’t do it. Location is good but there are others nearby. Staff are 10/10 but other than that I wouldn’t recommend this place. Bathrooms felt like they were public bathrooms as they were dirty and stained. Kitchen is tiny and dirty with few utensils and an overpacked stinky fridge. Hostel smells. Wifi hardly worked from room. Had a nightmare 40yo woman in my room since when are over 40s allowed? You can hear everything from the streets so if you’re dumb enough to still stay bring ear plugs

    While this hostel looked like a good deal, it’s not nearly as impressive as the reviews I read. While it is centrally located and pretty easy to get to and from, the room I stayed in was pretty stark and the floor was dirty when I arrived. I felt like I was in some kind of horror film with the LED lighting and icky floor and wall. Also, the room’s AC was not working properly and so my room stayed above 25degrees centigrade for the evening. Also, bathroom=awkward location & no place to put stuff
