    Great staff, friendly people and really cute kittens. Reception gave me the most detailed tour and introduction to a city ever. And everyone who worked here was really nice. I've found memories of hanging out with the people here too.

    Great place to stay in between train travel days! Really close to the train station, comfortable beds and nice showers. Good big kitchen and hang out area downstairs! Cute kittens too :) A bit far from the city center, but overall not a bad hostel!

    The hostel is a little old, and could use some work, but the room was comfortable enough, and the air conditioning kept it nice and cool. It still uses physical keys and not every person in the room has to have them, which causes some issues for locking up. I met a lot of wonderful people while I was here!

    The hostel was a lot smaller than I expected. It gave it a nice homely vibe. It doesn’t really have much of a social side to it and it’s very lowkey. If you’re allergic to cats, don’t go… They have a cat and kittens walking around

    I didn't stay for long, but the staff (a woman at the front desk) was so lovely and enthusiastic and sweet. I loved all the kittens running around the place. It wasn't the cleanest hostel I've stayed in and it got so unbearably hot at night, but it's cheap and overall not too bad.

    Nice location, the women I met were kind and lovely, the bloke was a bit of a misery. The young girl that checked me in didn't give me security code for the door, but luckily one of the others caught on and told me. Other guests are kind and courteous. The kittens are a definite bonus..but don't turn up if you have cat allergies. Bad points: washing machine Cost £5, apparently it's written somewhere but I never saw it. I'm 6ft and was put on top floor, angled ceiling.. lots of head bumps.

    The hostels staff is very friendly and relaxed. Rooms have AC but beside that you only find very basic equipment. There is only one single bathroom for men and one single one for women. The tiny kitchen smells like old food and doesn’t seem clean at all. Beds are comfortable but rather bring your own sheets and towels since the ones offered may be unsavory.

    The hostel has so many kittens but no litter box. When I was there a cat shat in the shower and peed on my bed. There was also dry shit in the kitchen and the whole place smelled absolutely terrible. Atmosphere was almost non existent.

    The person checking me in, front desk clerk, or reception, terrible attitude, and rude, he didnt even give me the code to enter so the next morning i was asked why I am here. The rooms had no ventilation and smelled bad. The shower area was unkept, the whole place needs better management. However the next day the kickboxing guy was cool.
