    I stayed at the Underground during my return through Tana on my way out of Madagascar, and it completely flipped my idea and concept of Tana. Besides the good food, beer, beds, and facilities, the staff of Underground were the highlight of my stay. They helped in anyway needed and set the mood and atmosphere in the lounge area. Paired with the highly accessible price, staying at the Underground is a no brainer if you're in Tana.

    Good location. Comfortable bed, mosquito net provided. Medium size locker, bring your own lock. Towels available for rent. Quite noisy on a Friday night until pretty late. Grocery store within five minutes walking. ATM on same street. Breakfast not included, but was delicious. No keys provided as dorm rooms do not lock. Coed showers. Happy with the facilities given the price. Can book your taxi transfer to the airport for 50,000 Ariary.

    Really nice place to stay, very close to Independence Avenue. Lovely hosts who were happy to help with everything. Having individual mosquito nets in the dorm room was a massive plus!

    staff are friendly and helpful, dorm is clean and quiet, food is delicious, the downstairs area/bar can get quite loud but has a great atmosphere. The location is great--centrally located but tucked onto a quiet street.

    A great hostel with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. The only negative was that there was a general lacking of electrical receptacles, and the existing ones were all worn out (did not hold onto the plug) and/or did not work at all. It seems like a small detail, but we all know how difficult it can be to keep one's phone charged while traveling. It would be an easy fix :)

    Only issues were with the showers; flat out poorly designed. Would tear them down and put up modern ones. Water pressure was also touch and go. Would also consider not allowing cigarettes as the smell almost always carries into the rooms.

    Good enough hostel, comfortable environment if you've just arrived in Tana. I highly recommend using their kitchen to cook or eating elsewhere as the food is WAY overpriced and only sell 'mexican'. Spent 1.5 months in Mada and the food here is the biggest rip off we had. The tour organizer given to us by the hostel (maybe not their fault) was cunning and fraudulent,he followed us to antsirabe after our tour had already commenced only to tell us it was now cancelled for another 2 weeks?

    Not the worst hostel but also far from great. Positives: they separate the male & female dorms. Negatives: not enough lockers & some are too small to fit backpack. One person has left their lock behind so that locker is unusable. No charging outlets in your bed cubicle. Only 1 toilet for all dorms. Showers are all in a co-Ed room w/ just a shower curtain to separate. No place to hold your soap/shampoo. Tall guys can peak in. The bar downstairs plays loud music & loud ppl partying.
