    This place has amazing rooftop pools and a bar the rooms are clean and are great bunk bed which are pretty comfy. It's clean and a little on the pricier side depending on which room you choose but it's by far the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. I would definitely stay at another one!

    Building A is by far the best! The lobby area is one of my favorites and I loved the roof bar and pool, the library and the cinema room.Unfortunately I got to be on the B building which is across the street but not too many places to hang out except your room and a common kitchen with not too many tables (this building also has a roof bar which closes much earlier). I wouldn’t mind crossing the street to get to the “cool” building but the constant slow traffic made it really difficult to do so.

    Not terrible but not worth the price. Many of the amenities were unavailable, likely due to covid. This includes the areas provided for people to work and the area people are pictured doing yoga. Also found a huge dead roach when we arrived laying near the steps. The rooms were smaller than expected and everything felt very cheap. Night club across the street so loud music at night and construction during early morning and day. Helpful and friendly staff. and the kitchen had a vegan option.

    I'll cut to the chase- Staff needs to do something about the mildew/mold going on in some of the rooms. I went in 3 different rooms on the 1st floor and theres mildew on the walls and pillows! The cleaners come in and do a light mop and garbage change. Towels are free. The pool is great. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Stayed here during COVID-19 I had the 4bedroom to myself for 5 nights. front desk stated they werent putting more than 2 in a room.

    The pictures were nothing like the actual property. It wasn’t horrible but the rooms were pretty gross in my opinion. For 8 people we had 1 bathroom which was NEVER cleaned. No windows. Had to use my camera flashlight to see around even during the day. I found that pretty bad in regards to how much you pay here, it is on the higher end of prices for hostels. I’d recommend something else to be honest. The food was decent, but you pay for everything. Party vibe.

    Of one my rooms smelled poorly, I was able to be switched out to another room, they have a WhatsApp group chat that is pretty cool, I had lunch with the GM good guy! I had a issue with one of the workers attitude in which he spoke to me numerous times and to my guest in a disrespectful fashion. This is the lowest grade I have ever left and first negative experience I have had at a hostel, no more business for my friends or family. The pool and food is amazing that was a plus, team did try.

    We had a private double room. The room was so tiny only the bed fit, there was damp all up one of the walls right beside the bed as there were no windows. The shared bathroom was right beside our door so people kept trying to slide open our thin door thinking it was the bathroom all night. I have never been in a noisier hostel. The way it is designed with the big open hall and everyone talking out there all night just increased the sound. It was so over priced for what we got, nothing like photo
