    Over all it’s a good & clean hostel and good place to stay but this time someone broke the both toilets lock ( my room 408 and toilet next to kitchen ..) management needs to fix it ASAP as it was a big trouble .. hope it will be fixed before my next stay or may be first I need to check toilet lock before checking in .. but I still believe it’s a good clean place and good value foe money .. the person at reception was nice an friendly though ..

    Very Good

    Paid $1300 for 3 nights for 3 beds. Fire alarm went off twice meaning we had to leave the building once at 2am the other at 4am. Hostel world overbooked so we almost lost our booking only finding out once we turned up to location 4-5 hours after making booking.

    Hostel requires you to put on and take off your own bed sheets. Rooms are not cleaned at all, witnessed staff just walk in and walk out without doing anything at all. Staff were rude and unhelpful when I had lost my AirPods in bedsheets after checking out. Was told laundry had already been taken away when I eventually found them after searching through laundry in reception after asking to speak to the general manager (only person nice/ helpful in the hostel). Spent 90% of stay waiting for lift.

    Really dirty beds and bathrooms Didn’t feel secure all all Told us when we arrived that they had double booked and the hostel was full and we would have to find alternative accommodation, eventually they managed to find space for the 2 of us. And then the 10 bed dorm we were in had 4 empty beds.

    Honestly have stayed in a lot of hostels and this was by far my worst experience. The entire place smelt like a toilet, they didn’t give us any sheets , the mattresses had bugs in it. Not worth it at all for a cheap night. Not to mention the beds were about to break and the toilet was a night mare

    Worst experience ever! After booking 6 beds and receiving multiple confirmations via email, we were told on arrival at 7pm that 5 beds had been cancelled by OTA. We had no notification of this at all. The hostel managed to find another 2 beds and 3 of us ended up sleeping in the car. We still had to pay the full outstanding balance of the booking, which was for 6 beds, even though they only provided 3 beds. Then when arriving back to the room at 4am, all beds were full including mine!
