    Booked a room for a couple hours, came in and the host was so nice and welcoming. (A young lady from the UK, forgot her name). The patio area was awesome, a good place to unwind after a long flight.

    Atmosphere is nice, rooms are small but that's how they're described. Bar seems really nice wasn't open on the night we were there. Roof terrace was great also

    Friendly staff and cool roof top bar, they put on a beer pong event the first night I was there which was fun. Vincent was a very friendly host. Everyone was nice. The biggest issue I had was lack of a comfortable bed and lack of air conditioning. It was impossible to get a good night's rest packed six people into a room with poor ventilation and no A/C. Pillow was a stuffed rag. Had to leave day 2. Couldn't justify staying here again or recommending due to the lack of AC and ventilation.

    Very Good

    Great location and staff was kind but honestly it was pretty dirty. My sheets were ripped and the mattresses were obviously well used. Bunk beds felt wobbly. It’s cheap so you get what you pay for but I think I’d choose to pay a little more for a cleaner hostel.
