    This was a great experience. Nice room, good sleep, friendly people, clean facilities. Joy helped me find a taxi afterward while waiting with me for it to arrive and chatting. Also the directions provided for my after hours arrival time were impeccable. Thanks for this experience. Highly recommend.

    This is one of those rare hostel experiences that leaves you thinking "I think i'm going to come back to this place and live here". I haven't ever stayed in a place as comfortable as eight elephants. It's not fancy, its comfy and homey. The beds aren't that comfortable, but I could stay there for months. It's a warm, loving, and accepting place that you should just stay in for the experience. It was amazing that there was a co-working space next door available to the hostel guests, it was perfct

    Very nice place located in a pretty street. Really easy to get to the metro station. The hostel is very clean and the staff friendly. After a bad experience in an other hostel we felt great there :-) The only negative thing is that we could hear the neighbors’ Tv from our room. Never the less we still recommended !

    This hostel was pretty close to the train station however it was actually difficult to find as it was in an alleyway down a side street. The staff were great to work with! The place itself had kind of a hipster vibe. I stayed in a mixed dorm room and the beds do not have curtains so no privacy. My bed wasn’t very clean and had stuff on the top I had to brush off. And the “mattress” was very hard and thin and underneath it was literally plywood. It was cheap and I got what I paid for.
