    Had a good night and this hostel. Met some friendly people and the free drink wasn't bad at all. The only thing was the shower curtains were really dirty and was an uncomfortable sight

    The staff was incredibly friendly! I checked in after a long day and the guy at the front desk (I think his name was Martin) could not have been more personable and friendly. I had a lovely time just talking to him and he even upgraded me to a nicer room!! SO nice!! I found a few bugs in the room but otherwise it was very very comfortable! Super convenient location too! Would definitely come back!

    Good location and value for money, had an issue with housekeeping not made my bed prior to arrival which was swiftly sorted out by reception staff (really friendly and helpful). Kitchen is decent size however the jobs take ages to heat up, no plug sockets by the beds but the en-suite bathrooms are a good size with a huge mirror. They also have a bar downstairs which has the cheapest drinks I’ve ever seen in a hostel bar , would stay again probably

    The kitchen was a disaster zone - super messy. The bathroom for my 10 bed mixed dorm was also pretty dirty. I was only there for one night so I don’t know if the messes accumulated from one day or multiple. The front desk staff was very cool and the location is great though!

    You can't pretend much from a hostel with such a good location and low value (I've consider that when rating), but I would really pretend to be able to grab a glass or a cup, which didn't happen. We've found two cockroach in the bathroom at night, with is not a big a deal (I've seen they clean it) but just to bear in mind if you really don't like them. I thin that the ensuite bathroom in a shared room doesn't really work (is weird to take a good s#it if you know your roomates are listening lol).

    Good location and staff are nice, but a lot of facilities aren’t really good enough. Kitchen hobs took ages to heat up, kettles broken or barely working, lack equipment etc etc. 1 en suite bathroom in a big room is annoying especially when there’s only other 1 toilet cubicle (with broken lock) on the whole floor. Just felt like there wasn’t much care in the place

    My trip has been postponed due to the corona virus. I haven't utilized your facility, so don't know how to review it. I can say that I am glad my payment is being held against the day that I do make the trip.

    We stayed here right before leaving Australia before WHO declared a pandemic. Staff was friendly and they had a good kitchen but security and cleanliness were very disappointing. They didn’t have any dish soap in the kitchen or hand soap in the bathrooms. The rooms were filthy with over flowing garbages that weren’t emptied during the 3 days we stayed. Concerning lack of cleanliness, especially during a virus outbreak.

    Unbelievably dirty on the balconies, and not very clean in the kitchen either. Bad smell like urin.
