    As Almaty is rly spread out, we loved the location as it was easy to walk to all major sights. The staff was friendly and constantly ensuring facilities were kept clean. We enjoyed breakfast and the staff helped us call a taxi to the bus station when we needed to leave.

    This is a proper little family run hostel and it’s theme is really cool. Pros Great location, great staff, fantastic breakfast for the room cost, comfy beds, good WiFi, lockers in room, kitchen facilities are good, clean bathrooms Cons Can’t think of anything major that needs to be noted. I honestly can’t recommend this hostel enough - it’s a little gem.

    The hostel was nice, great facilities, very nice and helpful staff, great garden, great location, good price, free breakfast... My only little issue was with electric plugs in our room - they were not working properly so it was hard to charge our devices.

    I stayed here with my family, including two toddlers, in one of the dorms. The staff was absolutely so welcoming and warm to us and our kids. The children loved running around outside, exploring the Hobbit house, chatting with the pets inside, and most of all, watching morning cartoons. The staff do not speak a lot of English, but it was never an issue. There are several people staying there long-term, also helping to cook breakfast and host- and they were equally hospitable and wonderful.

    Really good location (although you had to cross a busy road to get to and from the hostel). Comfy rooms, ours- Pirate themed- was a little on the small side but adequate and clean. Good kitchen facilities, could be busy at times. Quiet in the evenings and a no drinking on site policy in place. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great, particularly when the host cooked up mini pancakes one morning!

    Not a great stay. The hostel is close to downtown but on a very busy road with no sidewalk so getting there/back is a bit titious. Like many other hostels you have to do your own linens. The room was extremely hot at night and the sleep quality was poor. Hostel furnishings are alright and there is a nice backyard. Price was on par with other places but there are nicer hostels in Almaty for am equivalent price with a better location.
