    Great location in the heart of downtown, rooms are not huge, but well arranged and perfectly cleaned. A lot of common spaces to hang around.

    Nice clean hostel in the city centre. There were a few common rooms but we arrived late so there weren't too many people. It's in a great location, close to many bars but quiet enough.

    Overall good. Really liked it actually. Only bad thing is that it feels a bit cheep in some way. Squeeky beds, very tiny toilets etc. But hey, its cheep and the location is excellent.

    Fabulous

    My room was changed from a dorm to a single room due to a booking mix up on their end. All explained in an email before I checked which I greatly appreciated. Comfortable beds and good WiFi. Very clean. Only downside is I could hear noise from the kitchen in my room. Slightly loud of the first night with a large group cooking at 2am. Can't blame this on the hostel though and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

    The hostel has a very unique and cool aesthetic and is very centrally located making it easy to find things to do. It was quite quiet at times which is perfect if you’re looking to chill out a bit. I would stay there again if I was visiting the city.

    Very Good

    Im sure this hostel has promise, but I did not enjoy my stay here. I stayed for 3 nights in a private room (changing rooms after the 2nd night), and neither room blocked out the sound of other guests. In the room close to reception I could hear people in the kitchen all through the night. In the upper room I was surrounded by a group of Sri Lankans currently living in the hostel who were extremely loud, shouting between rooms and floors until 3am, and who were up again at 630am.

    Good

    The staff were kind and the location was good but the bathroom situation was rough! There was no toilet paper in either bathroom for the 24 hours I stayed there. Since reception closed at 3 pm you were kind of stuck with that state all night. The showers definitely weren’t clean enough for me to feel comfortable using. I will say that the kitchen was well stocked and a plus. Otherwise an overall subpar experience for the price.
