    The best hostel ever! Right from the moment I entered, the staff were so attentive and friendly. They provided me with lots of local information and made me feel very welcomed. The beds are comfortable and private in the dorms, the room was very big and the toilets were also very big. The communal area was cute, lots of people interacting and being able to make food, watch Netflix and just sit around. The garden is very beautiful - there’s a few hammocks! It was so good I extended my stay.

    Urban Garden Hostel was absolutely nice! Super friendly and helpful staff, they seemed to be cleaning all day long and it was soo clean and tidy! Breakfast was casual, but with some tiny extras like different juices, hot milk and an egg boiler so you could have your egg exactly the way you wanted. The kitchen was perfectly equipped, there even was a rice cooker! The cozy beds all had a night light, plug, locker, and best of all: curtains. In the nice garden is a bar to hang out in the evenings.

    My sister and I stayed 4 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm. Everything was perfect. Spotless clean, you have a space under your bed which is closed with a key. Private bathroom is very clean and spacious. Lots of room to put your things. Bed is comfy and the curtains are a really nice touch. There's noise from the street though. Breakfast is basic and good. The garden is also really nice. The hostel has a chill vibe. You can meet people but can also just relax by yourself in a quiet corner.

    The steps to the second bunk could be a bit wider. For al the rest a wonderful hostel with great hammocks to chill out in after a day of wandering.

    Everything thing about this hostel was awesome! Except for the lack of staff. The bartender was also working reception and cleaning. I had to ring a bell for a beer, I felt bad to command reception to get me a beer from a cooler a meter away. Atmosphere was lacking but there was definitely lots of people for breakfast. I suggest a staff person to introduce each everyone to everyone or a group activity. The beds were comfy and private. The floors did squeak. Very clean. Great location. Would come

    This place was great. It was exactly what I needed. Be aware for those that have rough times with bunk beds, these ones were particularly tough for me to get out. Also there was something super odd that happened every night. I was just getting into bed and my dorm was having a pretty early night and most people were already in bed and sleeping when at 10pm suddenly the door burst open and all the lights were turned on by the cleaning staff who came in and mopped the bathroom. Kinda odd.

    Nice hostel in general : safe, confortable, nice little garden and very clean. I would recommand this hostel for more quiet people who don't want to get crazy with action. I have to say that the ambience is a little too quiet for me and the equipement (music and living room) could be improved.

    My stay at the hostel was pleasant. The beds were super comfortabel with new mattresses and lots of privacy whilst sleeping which I appreciated. The whole hostel was clean, from the bedroom to the kitchen it had an amazing standard of cleanliness. The garden was a big surprise for me, it is actually beautifully large. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall I would not stay here again, as the hostel seemed sterile and had no personality. People did not connect here.
