    My stay here was absolutely wonderful, the staff were lovely and helpful always joined in games and made everyone feel welcome. Nice backyard area where the 'magic' happens. Had some nice bed which I think were new. Only a few minutes walk to the centre city area with all the bars and shops. Nice social vibe in the backyard... only downside was that one time the toilet paper run out and I was stuck in the toliet and didn't know what to do

    We stayed here for three nights. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff was helpful. It was okay to stay for this short period of time, but we wouldn't have enjoyed a much longer stay. - no place to lock your stuff in (you can't lock the safety lockers or rooms, the staff let us put our backpacks in their locked garden shed, but many of the other guests knew the code to get to the shed, so it didn't feel that secure) - dirty rooms/facilities - no A/C + comfortable beds + fridges

    Property was a cluttered mess! Also everything was so dirty, we left as soon as we woke up. I’ve been in many hostels and this was the worst.
