    Superb

    09 Jun 2018
    Amazing place to stay, felt like a home away from home! Cosy room with plenty of space and rustic/authentic decor, availability of everything you would need in the kitchen plus extras (managed to iron a playsuit whilst I was there!) and relaxed, helpful staff. Me and my friends loved this place, not to mention the location - walking distance to the zoo, loads of restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, pretty much everything you could want in vicinity. Would definitely recommend !

    Fabulous

    Not too far from most places, kept very clean and a very interesting hostel. I feel like it has seen better days, but overall it was a good place to stay. During the day the door to the rooms are all opened and it kind of feels like you're all staying at someones house - in a good way. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Only problem could be the noise of the road its on; with earplugs it was bearable, but it is very busy and there are often sirens, trucks etc.

    Very Good

    This hostel had very cool decor and vibe that felt individual and welcoming. The staff was friendly, but more in a way of leaving you to yourself than a really outgoing friendliness. As others have mentioned, we unfortunately saw a bed bug while there, but didn’t notice any bites or bringing them with us afterward, luckily. The street noise was also pretty loud, earplugs helped, and the bed wasn’t the most comfy. They had some posted restaurant recommendations that were good, too.

    Very Good

    They have BED BUGS!!!! I am in so big a trouble now as I brought bed bugs from this hotel back to my room and now I have to deal with them. The rooms are pretty small and they don't smell good. Cleanliness is the only problem though as the location is really good and easy to access to the public transportations. The staffs are friendly. However, you should consider if it is worth to get those bugs as for me it is not.
