    I was hesitant about staying at a hostel, I originally booked a hotel but I am glad I chose to stay at a hostel. This one specially, it was great. Everyone was friendly specially one of the workers his name was jean, we all went out and he joined us. He was very helpful and very kind. I will definitely stay here again when I go back.

    Awesome hostel with awesome staff specially Michael. The bed was comfy and you get 2 billows as well. The bedroom and the bathroom were clean and nice, lockers are free. The only issue that you have to walk for 10 minutes to get to the metro station. I made an amazing friends over the hostel. would come back again for my next visit.

    I really enjoyed staying here the staff are lovely and very informative. The rooms are a good size with a power plug are light and the shelf at every bed along with a curtain for each bed. They also provide a Locker in your room with a key so you don't need a padlock. The bathrooms are big and clean but there is only 3. The hostel is only about a 10 minute walk with a bag from internet city station. The hostel is good value and I would recommend staying here.

    This hostel in a far place in the Dubai internet city from the main Metro station, so you have to walk for about half an hour to get there the facility is very dirty and crowded also the staff is not enough they have a breakfast for 15 dirham but you can get a better deal some where else. the place is not clean as it should be so at your own risk.

    My stay here was a mix of both good and bad. Some staff were very helpful, while others did their best to be a real pain in the ass! JEAN, for example, was very friendly and helpful around the hostel. He also was quite good with helping with information about activities to do in Dubai. I missed him when he was on off days because he was probably the only reasonable staff. He should be at reception. The guys at the reception, especially VALERA is Extremely unprofessional.
