    The location is great, very close To all of the tourists locations, restaurants, and shopping! The hostel was great with the amenities and cleanliness! Lots of stairs and no escalator so keep this in mind! The terrace is great for gathering, and pub crawls were organized to bring travelers together! Mustafa who works there was amazing!! he gave us recommendations, showed us around, and made our stay extremely memorable!

    This is possibly the nicest hostel I've stayed at. The staff are incredibly friendly and genuine people. They gave great recommendations and were always ready to chat, joke and help out. The room are all lockable and you have your own locker for your bags and valuables. Beds all have curtains. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily. The breakfast was simple but good, with enough options for vegetarians. The only shortfalls are the lack of kitchen for guest use and the wifi was very slow.

    The young men at the desk were excellent, very friendly and helpful, and the position is great, very close to sites and transport to the airport. Beds were comfortable, but I found the pillow too thick and uncomfortable. I overcame that by folding a blanket and using that as a pillow. I was in a 4 bed female room with ensuite and the odour from the bathroom was the worst I've experienced, however other bathrooms and toilets I used were just fine. Maybe avoid the ensuite rooms?
