    Great location. 3 am curfew. The cleanliness wasn’t great - the water from the taps tasted a little mouldy and the kitchen was sort of cluttered but the rooms themselves were alright. It would be great if they could recycle!! The staff were very accommodating and the atmosphere was nice :) Overall a very homey hostel!

    Basic enough hostel but to be found in an excellent location. Great to have a kitchen and the place had a homely feel to it. I would go back.

    Very well located for the restaurants and bars. The staff were also very nice and helpful. The room was very small and some of the toilets and showers were broken. I think it was a little bit overpriced.

    Staff was great, but sometimes we had to wait a few good minutes before having anyone opening the front door (having a key would be nice). We stayed in a twin room for 1 night, the room was small but comfortable. The bathroom was the main issue. On ground floor, there is one bathroom with toilet and shower for 3 rooms. Not practical when you have to use the toilet and someone's in the shower. Wasn't very clean, dirty shower and wet floor. Couldn't make the shower work either. Ok for 1 night tho.

    Do not come here. You can smell the smoke from the room. Water pressure was so weak that I had to give up taking shower. Dirty and dusty dorm without window. The gap between bunk beds is very tight that only one person can walk through. Top 3 of the worst hostels that I have ever been to.

    One of the worst hostels I've stayed in. Bathrooms were filthy, I'd be surprised if they were cleaned weekly. Bins were overflowing and there was no toilet paper. Rooms were cramped and extremely messy. There was clearly no system in place for managing rooms, as I was woken up to drama about someone being put in someone else's bed. The price is cheap bht considering no breakfast is included it's not that cheap. Would not recommend
