    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.

    Great staff and great facilities. Comfortable beds with curtains, shelves, light, and universal power outlet. Clean! Kitchen has all the amenities you need to make food and refrigerators to store food. The female 6 bed room has a small balcony which was great. 12 minute walk to the metro. Restaurants, grocery stores including a carrefour are nearby. It is my second time staying here and I will happily stay again.

    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.

    Hostel was ok - not great. First, there weren’t enough bathrooms. There were two 6-person rooms that shared a single bathroom/shower (ie 1 bathroom for 12 people), which is not ok. Second, the location was not close to central Dubai, although the subway could be taken there in 20 minutes. It had more of an apartment atmosphere than a hostel atmosphere. The facilities were nice besides the bathroom issue, and the staff were great. I would stay somewhere more central next time.

    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.
