    Underground was dope. Staff are young aged and mad cool. They took me out one night and we all partied. The environment was hit or miss on some nights. Most nights it was a hit when it comes to conversation with other guests.

    Excellent place to meet other travelers, good location and friendly and helpful staff. The problem is that there's only a flimsy curtain and some plastic covers separating the mixed showers. Also local bar guests can freely go to everywhere in the hostel, potentially creating a safety issue. Strange Mexican menu

    Depending on what you want in an accommodation, Madagascar Underground can suit you just fine. We stayed in a private room which was relatively clean, large in size, old mattress, clogged shower drain, and no fan. When we arrived in the middle of the night, there was a very kind, French-only-speaking man to greet us, but he was unable to find us a fan. The room was not expensive and we had our own bathroom, and we were able to walk to many places in the old town, so it was a good value. Also, th

    Very Good

    I had a room without bathroom, + 1 night in the dorm. I had a good stay. The place seems to be a young persons hangout and this creates an excellent atmosphere. The downside of this is that there are always non-guests wandering in and out and security cannot be guaranteed, not that I had any problems. The kitchen is shared with the hostel restaurant kitchen and could be cleaner. The rest of the hostel was fine. All the staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful
