    The staff is so friendly and helpful. The hostel has a very cozy environment. The only thing missing was air conditioning but there’s a small pool where you can cool off.

    Classic stopover hostel for me. Not much going on at all but perfect when you need a good nights sleep after landing late and moving on. A few good places to hangout, or have a drink on the upper floor. Was impressed by how large the property actually is, clean but no soap in washrooms. Breakfast costs $2, about 5km to airport.

    Nice common area and the staff was very thorough and helpful. Not walking distance to bus terminal/airport but it’s only a $5 taxi. The showers had no heat which was rough. WiFi was pretty good.

    Very Good

    Staff are great here, really friendly. The pool is tiny but still a great addition to the hostel to cool off on a hot day. Breakfast was nice and worth the $2. The downside is the jungly vibe doesn’t end with the decor - there are ants everywhere plus some crickets and other creatures. Our room was insanely hot too, even with the fan on high. The location is a bit of a pain because even though it looks close to some places on a map, the one way systems mean you have to take long routes round.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I was the only person there in June. I assume this is because of Covid, so not their fault, but just a heads up as a solo traveler I left early because of this. The location was very far away from the city, I was told it was not safe to walk around the area so I had to order food via Uber eats. It would be nice for a pass through trip but not a good place to meet people/socialize. Very clean rooms and again, friendly staff!

    I was not impressed with the hostel. It was completely dirty. The rooms were decent though they didn't all have locks. There isnt much common area and the place feels cramped. The hostel doesnt seem to be next to anything, though you can take uber/taxi or bus to most places.
