    The hostel is not actually what we've expected. It's affordable and very clean. They offer free breakfast too.

    Really fun place, great staff, good common space for partying but the rooms aren't too noisy. Great kitchen space. Standard free breakfast (toast PB&J and cereal). Showers were variable temperature and pressure wasnt stellar. Overall great though

    Small bathroom areas and completely unmonitored who enters the building. I saw a homeless person begging people inside the hostel. But overall nice place

    Cockroaches in the dorms rooms, was clear the rooms did not get regularly cleaned to a good standard. Facilities were lacking, with very few showers and toilets considering the number of guests. No air con in rooms so got quite uncomfortably hot on a night. Overall not a particularly pleasant place to stay. That said the staff were all very friendly and helpful and it was in a very accessible location, making it easy to access the city.

    Really disappointed during our stay here- staff were rude and unwilling to help. Key deposit policy of leaving a $20 deposit and then having to email the hostel when you leave and wait 5 days for the deposit returned is ridiculous. Also I’m not a fan of having to strip my own bed when leaving the hostel at 2am when you’re already trying not to wake other guests. Would not stay here again.

    Pretty unbearable without any air conditioning. Free breakfast was probably the highlight of our stay. It was so hot we all had our doors left opened- woke up in the night to see a man in our room (who was not staying in our room). There’s a wanted poster in the communal area which is a bit freaky. Kitchen has great facilities. It’s a shame that the good factors were out weighed...

    We stayed in this hostel for 1 night and it was horrendous. When checking in the staff seemed friendly but turned out to be rather rude as they didn’t speak to us. The vibe of the hostel was unwelcoming and unfriendly. The bathrooms were clean, however expect a cold shower. As for the rooms, the room was hot, stuffy, no air flow and cockroaches were found on the bed. If you have heavy luggage expect a full work out as there is No lift and multiple flights of stairs (Tight spiraly staircases).BAD
