    Awesome place with a great kitchen, nice bar with good atmosphere, and good hang out areas. Rooms themselves are clean, but the bathroom could be a little cleaner and nicer. Would stay again tho.

    Very nice hostel with open bar/restaurant. Good food and drinks, very friendly staff. The living room and kitchen of the hostel are seperated from the bar and reception and are nice decorated with a relaxing sitting area and 2 outdoor terraces. I would recommend this hostel.

    One of the persons in the group stayed in the dorms, while two others stayed in a private room. The dorms were very good, and had curtains in the bunk-beds, which is an excellent feature when choosing a big mixed dorm. The private bathroom in the 2 persons room was very good, although the shower was hardly usable while standing in the location it had within the bathroom.

    I needed to sleep from illness and slept a lot. Gastama let me read for four hours on check-out day before I left for my coach which won votes. The bar has been reduced so the hostel is no longer an after-thought downstairs. Bar staff don't help tourists as well as hostel staff.
