    Other than the fact that the hostel is closed from 12pm to 5pm every day for cleaning, it is an amazing place to stay. If you show up early for check in, they allow you to leave big bags in the common areas. It’s a very safe and secure environment so I felt comfortable doing so.

    The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The environment is very inviting and encouraging to socialize with others in the kitchen or living rooms. My only complaint is the cleanliness and showers. From what I saw there are only 2 showers, and each doesn't have sufficient space to store clothes and a towel - so you have to go back to your room half naked. Cleanliness in terms of the sleeping arrangements was perfect, but the floors and corners of the rooms were dirty and had spider webs.

    The staff and environment are great! The facilities are good. One problem is that check in is only at 5. It could be earlier. And also outside doesn't look so safe at night. Even though, I reccomend this place.

    Really great atmosphere and great people, just a tad cramped and no lockers in the rooms but you can put your valuables in a safe at reception. Was a bit inconvenient that you’re not allowed to be in the hostel between noon and 5pm, however if you plan around this it’s fine! I had a lovely stay nonetheless!

    I was only there for one night and had a really good stay. It’s only a short walk into the centre. Small, but cosy hostel.

    Social and cozy hostel! Bathrooms are quite dirty and smelly. The rule that you have to be out of the hostel between noon and 5pm is a bit odd and inconvenient.

    Hostel completely closed from 12-5, meaning you cannot be inside at all, or drop your bags off. A very lazy policy to save money by not staffing the hostel. Downstairs had a damp and mouldy smell.
