    Everything was great: very clean dorms, with dedicated bathroom. The downstairs chill area is rather nice, but cannot beat the rooftop area with the bar, Art and nice Hawaiian touch. Plus it is greatly located, with a central metro station less than 10 minutes away, as well as many restaurant options within walking distance.

    Super nice hostel, perfect location, friendly and helpful staff. Try out the massage/acupuncture place on the opposite side of the street, they speak good English and gave very good massage! Also tons of nice cheap restaurants on the same street. Only negative thing to mention was that our bathroom smelled like poison because of the strong cleaning agent used by the hostel. I could barely breath there and avoided the bathroom by all costs.

    It's a very good hostel with bar and courtyard to relax. The location is a bit far anything interesting and public transport early morning and late evening is a challenge. The dorm room size is very good and the beds have curtains for more privacy. The shared bathroom and shower were clean all the time. The staff was not very caring and welcoming.

    Lovely hostel with great staff and great location. Lacked a bit of atmosphere and the bathroom smelt a bit, but good bedroom set up and curtains on the bed. Locker bit the best quality, but they have a hostel safe for any valuables which is very helpful. Would recommend :)

    Location of hostel is good! Only 10 min walk to shopping area with a lot of restaurants. Staff is great and very friendly! Also very helpful with for example doing the laundry. Rooms are small, but just enough. Beds might be too hard for some, but I thought they were comfortable. Bathroom attached to room could be cleaned more, but it was good enough. Would stay here again!
