    Fun loving, relaxed atmosphere. Only concerns were the handrail going from the main floor to the second floor. It was not attached to the wall at the middle brace. It had been pulled off, but, not yet repaired. The television in the common area did not work unless a laptop computer was connected to it.

    The hostel was much nicer than I expected. I stayed in the annexe house where my section consisted of one 6-bed dorm and two private rooms which shared a kitchen and a bathroom. The room had lockers for storing valuables, the place was relatively recently renovated and kept clean. The only issue I had was that there could have been more outlets in the room, particularly ones closer to the bed. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay would definitely stay again!

    A little bit dirty place. The dorm was super warm. If you like smoking weed it's enough to open the window so you can smell the cannabis... Super bad wifi connection. Friendly staff. Hope you can do it better guys in the future. Thanks for hosting me.

    Not a bad hostel but nothing exceptional either. The whole "no shoes" thing was a little weird.

    Excellent location for tourist spots. Staff were friendly and helpful and the other people staying there were mostly quite sociable, so the vibe was nice. Really loud AC that made the room freezing, even though this was welcomed to begin with I ended up having to wear jumpers and jeans while inside (despite it being up to and above 30 degrees C outside some days). Cooker dials were covered in a thick layer of grease and bed linen was a bit dirty. Loud corridors. Dryer did not dry my clothes.
