    Second time staying here! It is just like going home for a visit! Amazing staff with a lot of other amazing hostel visitors. You will make friends for life guaranteed! During my stay I ended up being on lockdown due to the covid-19 outbreak. The owners right through to the staff cared for everyone and each other, while making sure that everyone in the hostel was safe, secure, fed and happy. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this hard time no matter where in the world you are from!

    Loved staying here! The hostel was very clean. I stayed in a female dorm and the privacy curtain on the bunk beds made me feel very comfortable when taking a nap in the middle of the day. Everyone was very approachable and dinners together at 9pm was a great opportunity for us all to bond. Drinking games after dinner and clubbing for those who want to partake. Lots of walkable cafes and restaurants nearby! Would definitely come back

    This was my first hostel experience and it sold me! Everyone was so nice and welcoming and helpful. I felt very safe as a woman traveling alone. I felt that all of my belongings were secure in the locker beneath the bed. The beds, bathroom, and kitchen were all very clean. This hostel makes it really easy to make friends, but also doesn’t pressure you to do so if you want to do your own thing. The group dinners are great and tasty!!

    I loved my stay here! I stayed for two nights and had an amazing time. I got terrible food poisoning from something I ate prior to arriving, and the staff and volunteers were so helpful! They made me tea, changed my sheets, and checked in on me several times. While I couldn’t take advantage of the family dinners, free walking tours, and bar/club crawls, I still had a great time. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience given the situation. I definitely plan on coming back!

    If you are solo traveling around the world for the first time like me I recommend staying in this hostel. You can make lots of friends here, they take you out to the club and bar every night, and they have free breakfast. I had a really great time here and I would do it again.

    Nice enough hostel, lots of communal areas so good a good choice for solo travelers. Although its not in the best part of town the metro station is a short walk a couple minutes away so very easy to get anywhere you need to. There is also a rooftop balcony which is great! Quick note for those looking for private rooms: there is only 1 private room in the hostel and its right next to the kitchen and reception area so it can be noisy if you are trying to get an early night.

    Very Good

    Great place for solo travelers. This hostel makes you feel at home. given the infrastructure, it is very easy to meet people. Cleanliness can definitely be improved. It is located next to many restaurants and bars, a good location. It is a humble hostel, but I will always remember it for the great times and great people I met there, we were truly a big family.
