    I stayed in mix dorm. Both of my male room mates were super cool. In fact we went to casino royale together and enjoyed theoughout night. Casino was like walking distance 500m. Restaurants are near by. Area is colorful. Hostel was near n clean so the rooms. Bed sheets were white so had some stains. Cafe is there, it was good. Wifi is not good in rooms. My first experience in hostel was fab.

    Fellow travellers.. Kindly GOOGLE "Dorm Etiquette" before booking any hostel 👿 Now regarding Old Quarter hostel:- CONS:- : NO washing-Laundry facility at all. : NO water-tank, hence you may run out of water whilst 😉 doing the job. : NO signage for "Keep Silence" in Dorms... which ultimately lead to a lot of disturbance. : Very Limited Breakfast menu.. which remains the same every day. PROS:- : Very Helpful and Very well-behaved staff... love you for that. : EXCELLENT Coffee... : 🤩

    The only thing I really liked about the place, is the place itself, it's clean, it's pretty and its in a very nice area. Other than that, the staff couldn't have been less helpful to me.

    Just 2 washrooms amongst 3 dorms and those aren't even attached, so in the morning it is a bit of a hassle, apart from that there is a constant noise of what I assume a pump switching on and off 24 x 7. Apart from this it's a nice cozy place.

    Located in a prime location with great connectivity to rest of the city and state It has a nice little cafe which is open to non residents as well The common meeting room on the first floor is nice and cozy Rooms are clean and have under the bed storage, you need to bring your own locks though The wash rooms however were pretty unclean and that's a real bummer No laundry facility or clothesline No common kitchen either just a refrigerator Ryan the owner though is very helpful
