    On arrival I was greeted at reception by the owner who kindly served me tea whilst I checked in. The room was as expected, very clean and had all the essentials for a two day stay. Showers ran hot and toilet facilities were good. For the price it was a brilliant stay.

    Great hostel! The staff were really friendly and the location was perfect. The room and bathroom was basic but clean and good for the price. The food in the cafe was delicious! We had a lovely stay.

    Bathroom facilities very bad for dorm rooms. Make sure you bring your soap/towel for the use. Dorm rooms without AC are little difficult to sleep in. Make sure to bring your own lock for the security lockers.

    The best thing about this hostel is the amazing staff. They are really helpful and friendly. Unfortunately everything else is a let down. The beds are like wood and really hard The bathrooms are dirty The reception is not in the same building I wish all the negatives could be over looked by how friendly the staff are but it can’t. Loves the atmosphere from courtyard area and would come chill out and have a drink again but wouldn’t stay here next time.

    I was over expected with my hostel since what I saw from internet quite different from reality. Common room in 2nd floor is dark and not clean at all. My room was in 3rd floor while bathroom is broken in shower handle, hot water is not working for me was really not comfort. Staff is nice Ms Naomi and the man location close to dutch square less than 5 minutes walking.
