    The hostel was lovely and clean with incredibly spacious rooms and facilities. Good location. Whilst it was a nice place, it was not super social if you are a solo traveler hoping to meet people. The hostel didn’t organise anything to encourage socialisation, however it’s easy enough to meet people in rooms/ communal areas. Lastly, there was no air conditioning or even ceiling fans. It was about 35-38 degrees Celsius the entire duration of my stay, and it was always incredibly hot in the rooms with no form

    The hostel was nice. It would be very much appreciated if the bed could get some sort of privacy added (in the big dorms) like a curtain and if the locker had locks!!! Also a sanitary bin inside the toilet cabin, and not just the bathroom next to the sinks would be appreciated. Apart from that it was a very pleasant stay and definitely recommended.

    The hostel is a bit weirdly configure: you can avoid the front desk. That makes it a bit less secure and a less welcomy. It is on a busy street at night when it is hot is really difficult to sleep as you have to decide between heat and noise. Bathrooms are okay. If you take the metro it is just next to it and if you want to go out drink everything is nearby.

    Very Good

    The hostel looks really pretty online but not completely like that in real life, in my opinion it’s because of the cleanliness that just isn’t the best. The dorm I slept in was very spacious, the room in general was beautiful. Most of the beds had some privacy because you couldn’t look into them entering the room. I felt like mine was the exception, it was literally right in front of the door, so everyone in a 10 bed dorm would enter and see me but like just me. I don’t have a problem with that in general,

    Overall the services are pretty good but this hostel is not recommended for summer. There are no fans as well as AC here. We were sweating all the time.

    worst experience ever. It was so bad that after one night I decided to leave and go to a hotel. There’s two things that made my stay not pleasing: one was the people on my room (this is not entirely the hostel fault but still), they were super loud at 2 am. They turned on the lights even though it was super late and started talking. Second, it was pretty clear that the room didn’t have AC so it was super hot, the windows were open so I got bitten by mosquitos all night. The bed was super dirty
