    very good time, staying two nights at this hostel was a easy stay with no issues, the security is kinda associated with the fact that you gotta just trust that no one will go through your stuff, so i took my backpack with me everywhere i went but i left my luggage behind. also, i wasn’t the biggest fan of the fact that anyone can just walk in (there is a metal barred gate that you can reach through to unlock the door) but only during business hours, as they seal the metal gate overnight.

    Mellow and relatively quiet. Was only there for a night, but didn't really notice much community. Good value for people passing through.

    We arrived at about 3am from an overnight bus. The communal area was perfect for us because it had couches where where we could lie down and get some sleep, because we couldn’t officially check in until 1pm that afternoon. The location was quite good, within a short distance of the metro. The breakfast was a bit average, two pancakes cooked the day before which were heated up. Overall pretty good value.

    This place is very well located but lacks a lot. It isn’t clean, which we noticed from the stains on our bed sheets and the use of bar soap for dishes. It isn’t well managed, something I experienced when I crawled into my bed to find someone else sleeping there. You need to bring your own lock for lockers and can rent a towel for $2 for the whole stay. The breakfast is old pancakes with which you might be lucky enough to get syrup. It wasn’t a horrible experience, but I was uncomfortable.
