    Everything! The rooms were so nice & very clean! Staff were so helpful - there 24/7 to help with anything. Central location which was great. There is a bar downstairs from reception as well where you can chill should you not fancy moving anywhere for the night. It really does have everything.

    It was my second time staying at Aurora Hostel and I can say I am impress. I stayed in the private double bedroom with private shower and the room was exceptionally clean. Front desk staff were extremely helpful and efficient.

    We had an amazing stay in the hostel! We were travelling in 5 people and we booked the 6 people room, and they gave us the whole room! The hostel is amazing, really clean, the bathrooms have hot water, the wifi is awesome! The location is perfect, near everything you may need. We would definitely come back

    There are some really good things about this hostel, namely: the main staff. They’re extremely friendly and helpful and go out of their way to create a nice atmosphere. New Year’s was a lot of fun. The location is also decent and there’s a good common area. For sure, the biggest problems are cleanliness and facilities. The bathrooms in particular got pretty gross, which considering the large number of “volunteers” I found curious. I think with a little effort this could be a much better hostel.

    ok so first and foremost the dirtiness was shocking. Not only did they not really clean the rooms and lockers (my locker had old socks in it), but the bathroom are 90% of the time clogged. And the staff doesn't really care. It seems like all they do is just chill around. you really don't know who's working there and who's a traveller. Also there isn't really an atmosphere and again the staff doesn't care. The kitchen is actually quite big, but I never used it because of the lack in cleanliness.

    1980s frat house vibe. 80s tunes, cigs inside, etc. Room had a very musty smell to it and I was given a bed sheet with one giant rip in the middle. Cinderblocks might be a better alternative to the mattress. The pics from the website are deceiving. There was definitely no beer on tap (which was what appealed to me from the pics), just overpriced cans of Brahma. Staff very friendly and location is great but that’s about it. In conclusion, go somewhere else.

    Definitely would not come here again. I've stayed at many hostels and am usually very flexible and understandable that hostels are not always in the greatest condition. However, this hostel needs some serious management. The bathrooms were never clean, toilets clogged, missing toilet paper, hair in the drain. The sheets had holes and stains on them. The staff was friendly, but creepy. One guy made my friend very uncomfortable and wouldn't stop texting her calling her "baby".

    We don’t really leave negative reviews to be honest - but felt the need to here. Killed several cockroaches, including one that crawled on me in the middle of the night, one crawling on kitchen counter. Beds squeak loud enough to wake you. Only one dirty shower for all the dorms to share. Haven’t seen anyone cleaning ever. Staff is nice otherwise.
