    Amazing hostel with amazing staff. Small enough to have a chilled vibe but big enough that there is always someone/thing to go do. Great location and the staff are super helpful. Place is well maintained and cleaned can't recommend enough

    Great staff, fantastic way to meet new people. The only thing that I didn’t care for was that there was not a space outside for people to hang around with each other. The common area that they have is ok but not really inviting especially in the evening because they turn off all the lights like it’s bedtime. I am older than the average traveler who chooses to stay in a hostel but this is the first one that I have been to where EVERY SINGLE PERSON looked like a child. otherwise great place.

    Amazing hostel for Solo travellers. Breakfast is simple but good, staff is super friendly and they have a lot of tours organized so it makes it easier for you. It is quite noisy so don't go here If you want to go to bed before midnight (bar closes at this time) thanks for an amazing stay !

    Discovery hostel was okay. The location near the metro station was nice, but there is not much in the neighborhood surrounding it. This is definitely a party hostel. Every night of the week was very loud in the hostel until around midnight, then everyone would leave to go to the bars, and come back to the hostel at 4-5 am and again be very loud. They had good tours offered through the hostel, and staff was friendly. Overall-- not great, but okay.

    Wouldn’t recommend this hostel if you’re over the age of 25. The doors to the private rooms are in the common area which can be noisy until 2am. The private rooms are right beside the kitchen and people start cooking from 6:30am. Overall very noisy and quite grubby and unclean. One plus side was that staff were always very friendly.

    There were bed bugs in 1 room and people were bitten everywhere. Also it was raining a lot and because the hostel is open, you had to go through the rain to reach the bathroom or just your room.
