    Good hostel for solo travellers, the free dinner means everyone eats together and it’s super social. Not a party hostel but you can buy beers there and go out to bars. Laura is very helpful in recommending things to do. The food is decent and you have something different each night. Staff are helpful in organising tours. Beds have curtains for privacy and the air con works well. Bathrooms are a little dirty and hostel good do with a bit of maintenance but otherwise a good stay

    The fact that this hostel feeds you both breakfast and dinner makes it an absolute steal! And the food was always delicious. If you don't like snakes or cats this hostel isn't for you but the animals were super cool and we're great with the guests. The only downside to this hostel is that the showers are cold but most hostels in Java are so it is what it is. Laura is always available at dinner for recommendations and she is sooo knowledgeable. Stay here!

    A really social place because of the free dinner and breakfast. Recommend for anyone travelling solo and want to meet people. The staff get friendlier the longer you stay there. I extended my stay to a total of 5 nights. They offer a good free walking tour showing you all the sites of the city. My bed was a bit uncomfortable but I seemed to be the only person with a dodgy bed. Shower was cold but that is the case in most of java. Would really recommend this hostel to anyone.

    It is nice place but not perfect as much as in the recommendations. O heard that its dinner and breakfast is really delicious but I have never had. It is not dirty but not much clean too. The atmospher is ok but it can be better. It is super normal.
