    Definite party hostel- but not loud in rooms so sleeping is easy. Amazing atmosphere super helpful staff. Best place to stay before/after Castaways tour. Special shout out to BOMPAS and MONIKA who made the stay much more enjoyable!

    The hostel itself is very nice. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Although since it is a party hostel it could be hard to sleep at night if that's what you're trying to do. Also found a juicy cockroach in the bedroom. Lots of great bars and decent food in the area. The staff are what make the hostel great. One staff member named Pasta essentially planned the rest of my trip for me and helped me book all kinds of stuff. All in all a great party hostel with wonderful staff who are very knowledgeabl

    Great location in the old quarter. Atmosphere isn't so great as everything is focussed around the club/bar which frankly isn't that good. Not great for solo travellers as mostly groups in this hostel. Nice rooms and en suites. Wifi needs serious improvement.
