    Great location, just a 20 min walk along the river to some of the main sites (also makes a great run in the morning!) staff are super helpful and will help you figure out what to do in Almaty, and learn a little Kazakh as well! Breakfast was good.

    Great stay with staff that went above and beyond to help out. Amazing breakfast, kind faces, really clean facilities, great garden to chill in. Note there are only 2 bathrooms but they are lovely so it's worth a little wait!

    The girls at the hostel were AMAZING! Really kind and helpful- so thank you! Hostel is a little further out from the centre but it is easy to react by walking or bus. Place was comfortable but could have done with an extra bathroom.

    It's the staff that make this place great - a mixture of locals and volunteers offering unrivalled (English-speaking) advice. A social yet relaxed atmosphere. Free breakfast (different each day). Location is slightly far from the centre; perhaps a 20/30 minute walk, but it's no problem with a taxi/bus. Would definitely recommend.

    Very Good

    A good hostel, unfortunately a little overpriced in my opinion. It is located 10 minutes walk from a very large supermarket supplying cheap and good meals. The staff are generally helpful and are very polite/friendly. Small things, such as there rarely being enough toiletries in the upstairs bathroom, could be improved !
