    Good! Some of the staff might have been a little shy but still helpful. Small dorms, not much space for your stuff if you are hauling a big load (if you are staying in hostels, I hope you figured out you should travel light anyway). The private room however is quite large. We were on our bikes which they did not let us bring in, but the security guard aways keeps the gates closed so that was fine.

    Had a great stay in The Base - booked for 3 nights and stayed for 7!!! So clean, great kitchen to use, superb wifi, lockers, hot showers, nice staff, good location, enough space on the back terrace / balcony to do even yoga! All I could wish more is a full time kettle and maybe a hammock! :) Thank you Linda & co! Happy to be back couple more times later this year!

    Great hostel with lovely staff. Only bad thing to note is that the taxi drivers they call can be total assholes who charge too much, so better to just organise that yourself.

    Really clean and super safe hostel. I took a taxi from the airport and the driver knew it straight away. There were no problems getting there. There is tea and coffee available but unfortunately no breakfast which I always think is a good suggestion for a hostel even if it's something small. There were only a few of us staying in the hostel so it was quiet but I'd happily stay here again.

    It is on renovation now, so after that, it would be much better, but still it is quite clean. And both of the guys who are in reception and the door are so kind and nice :) they always smile, thanks!
