    Great location with only a 2min walk to the tram or beach. Use of the pool and gym included. Grocery store within the building complex was handy as Dubai is expensive. Beds were comfortable and most had curtains for privacy. Small lockers available for securing valuables and large wardrobes in the room for luggage. Kitchen available for use with big fridges. Bathroom floors always a bit wet but the cleaner was there everyday and the place was very tidy. Staff friendly. Will definitely stay again

    The people who run this hostel are super nice, flexible and take care of any needs. The location is perfect for JBR and Dubai Marina with everything close by. The sea view from the balcony is beautiful. Apart from that the hostel is really basic. 4 beds in a rooms. That's it. The male bathroom was wet regularly because of the missing shower curtain. The kitchen itself was clean and not really used by others. For low budget travelers a good place to stay.

    Hostel World or the Hostels needs to get their booking process together. Not a great experience to walk in to a Hostel and be told they’re “not seeing your booking”. Not the best Hospitality either in handling the matter with one rep rushing for payment instead of trying to find the booking and payment.

    + The staff is really friendly and the location is superb. 5 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk to the tramline to the red line. - There were no curtains in the bedroom window. - There was no shower curtain either, so the bathroom was soaking. - No towels (to rent or buy) - Approx. 2 cockroaches per day in the bathroom. - You had to ring to the security to get in, and they were always pissed that you didn't have key. - I complained on day 2, but no solution in the 9 nights I stayed.
