    Great hostel with a really good vibe! The staff was awesome - Luc and Ryan are some of the nicest people we’ve met so far and had a few tricks when it comes to mixing cocktails 😁 Definitely worth a visit!

    Good value for money, and awesome to have a breakfast buffet. Party-ish vibes, but also felt weirdly hard to get to know people.

    Free breakfast is great, and the Muay Thai class was brilliant. Food is really good and okay price. But rooms were noisy, people coming in at all hours of the night and morning, no indoor area and only thin blankets provided so very cold at night. Personally didn’t like the type of of people this hostel attracts, staff are nice but would defo stay elsewhere next time. Cheap though

    Not very happy as we came back to our room at 3 In the morning and there was a wild cat on my bed and I am allergic. I ask security for help he says he couldn’t do anything so I had to sleep ourside even tho I’d payed for a room! Apart from that the free breakfast is great and the Muay Thai teacher is a laugh
