    Normal hostel. The staff were very nice and helpful. There were two problems- 1. people smoke in the common area and you can't seat there without having to breathe it, and even worse, the smoke gets inside the rooms. 2. the hostel is located in an dangerous area in the night time, from around 9 pm, and then it's better not to leave the hostel.

    nice hostel in a good location - walkable to zone 1 but felt very secure and safe. Make note of the photo of the entrance before you arrive as we did have a little trouble spotting the hostel first time around as there is no sign for it. The dorms are comfortable and clean with a nice element of privacy with the curtains. The kitchen is well equipped. There are only two toilets and showers for the whole hostel which at times is frustrating and also means they are not that clean. Friendly staff

    Stayed one quick night here , love the capsules ! Gives you a little privacy . Did not love that smoking was allowed in the common area because it all drifted into the sleeping quarters . Made a reservation and paid for a early morning taxi to take me to the airport .... woke and and there was no taxi. Had to wake the manager on the couch , was very late to the airport . The showers were not great .

    The hostel was in a good location. The staff are really nice, friendly and helpful. I didn’t feel it was very clean there, I wasn’t convinced the sheets were clean as I found long hairs in the bed. The bathrooms are a bit grotty. Breakfast was basic but tasty, pancakes and fresh fruit. It’s Ok for 1 night.

    Pretty isolated vibe. Had food poisoning from somewhere else and it was not an ideal bathroom to spend my time in. The floors were dirty and were not cleaned any time over the 2 nights I was there. One of the showers did not have a dial so I had to have a cold shower.

    Terrible smell of cigarette smoke through the whole hostel including the rooms and capsule beds. No one should stay here who is not a smoker.
