    Met some cool people here that I actually consider friends now. Only suggestion is to buy ear plugs when staying in a mixed room of people but great Hostel needless to say.

    Superb

    The place is in a great location. The neighborhood is also really safe. The hostel is clean. I stayed in a private room and it was very spacious. It also had a tv equipped with Netflix. I did not have a chance to socialize since I already had my activities planned, but they were very helpful with info on things to do. I would love to stay here again.

    Fabulous

    21 Nov 2018
    Only one complaint: the way the bathroom/showers are set up is not for the modest. Nowhere to undress, then nowhere to leave your clothes while you shower (every part of the floor around all three showers gets soaked when any one of them is running), then nowhere to get dressed again afterward unless you are comfortable doing all of those things in front of strangers, running back and forth from the toilets on the other side of a wall. I would suggest bringing a bag or something to hang outside.

    Very Good

    30 Nov 2018
    It was OK. relatively mediocre. Certainly not a bad place but not great. They put me in the wrong room I booked which was ok because there were less people in the room anyway. But the first night was so humid and smelly it was gross and hard to breathe. Bathroom facilities less than stellar. Stalls not very private and nowhere to put your clothes etc. location is fine but not ‘central’, but on the lake/river which is a plus actually. I would try a different one next time.
