    We stayed in a private room which was off a appament style space. There was a kitchen and shared space between us a maybe 4 other rooms, so good for cooking.

    Sells itself as a fun social hostel and isn’t really, but clean enough, safe enough and good value. Best part is definitely the location, if you’re looking for nice go a few doors down to Nomad. Fat camel bar is also cheap to start the night but not that fun

    Bed was clean. Our dorm room had a broken window, there was actually a hole there with no tape/cover whatsoever. The pressure of the shower was not good and it took a long time to get hot. Kitchen was also kind of dirty... But you can’t expect much for the price you pay I guess. Apart from that, it’s a fine location and the staff is friendly.

    Excellent location. Really good WiFi. But beware, really bad kitchen, unclean facilities, only one bathroom for an entire floor of people, leaving boys using the showers as toilets. And you can’t even access any other toilets! Also mainly people living there, in our room they were really bad, bringing all their friends into an already too small room and taking over the place. Not a comfortable stay. But good location and for the price, really great. Just need to be aware for the residents.

    Awful service, The staff woke me up at 3am because they wanted me in reception to see in their system when I booked my room, even when was that same day. The dorm was full and other three persons came to the room too because the staff told them. Also where is kitchen, no any window.

    The thing that mostly of the rooms don't have a window makes everywhere humid, sticky and smelly. Cleaners try their best but of course is up to backpackers to keep tidy and clean. No more than a week in there

    Not a good place and the staff who checked us in was unfriendly and unhelpful. They claimed that they did not received our bookings and proceded to put us in all different rooms after we presented our documents. When we decided not to stay there and asked for a refund they straight out refused even though the mistake was on their side. They ended up giving us coupons for future bookings which are only valid for six months even though we said we will not be returning to the country again.
