    Great place. everyone has their own code to get in. great people here. Most are digital nomads keeping chill during the week and lettin' loose during weekend with everyone invited. cooking classes. One of the best-supplied kitchens i've seen in a hostel----and i'm a chef. If you work online and want a good party/work balance, this is the spot!

    Had private twin room, people kept using code to unlock our door without knocking... no privacy. Staff had to change code for us. kitchen gets quite busy, but there are plenty of facilities. LOADS of signs around with rules, reasonable, but obvious something happened in the past. 24 hour reception. Everything is very clean, showers/bathrooms are great standards. Printer is available. Shop on bottom floor (part of the hostel) has everything you could need. Atmosphere awesome! Recommended!

    The staff were fantastic and all really helpful and knowledgeable. The group who live in the hostel and spend their days playing out of tune guitars and giving people unwelcoming looks in the rooftop really spoil the overall atmosphere which is a shame. Hostel is great value for money with a huge free exercise complex over the road.

    The leather to my bed was not good, because it wasnt fixed on the bed. My bagpack was too big for the closet. In every floor we had four bathrooms, but due to the many people they werent always clean. At the rooftop was a nice atmosphere. The staff war helpful and informed me about the 1h free swimming pool entrance nextdoor. If you want to borrow a lock, they charge you extra. Sometimes it was annoying to leave the House because for that you needed to call someone of the staff. All in all fine.

    I stayed in hostel for more than a week and its only bcoz of amazing atmosphere inside. was lucky, cuz there was a band playing in the common area, this gave a big value for this place. In front of the building is free basketball playground where all people from the hostel goest to play. Amazing staff!!!!!!!!! Bad sides: hostel isnt the cleanest place in the world, kitchen is very dirty, and all areas are a bit smelly, especially sofas. No soaps in bathrooms. Bit far from city center.

    Very Good

    Great rooftop chilling area for socialising, great kitchen facilities, good clean bathrooms but the dorms were on the small side. The staff were for the most part friendly, EXCEPT for the balding guy with glasses at reception who was seriously passive aggressive and patronising. He made me feel very uncomfortable and other guests felt this way too. Despite this weirdo casting a dark cloud on the experience, I had a good time especially as it’s right near free basketball courts!

    This hostel is OK. The location is not great as there is little to do and to get anywhere near the centre is a 30+ minute walk. The lack of bar is also disappointing and the first 2 days we were there the shop was shut and they don't let you bring in alcohol. The fact that you can't leave your bags there after check-out past 2pm is ridiculous and something I had never encountered before. The staff were nice however and the rooftop terrace is a nice place to chill.
