Nice hostel with a good pool, really beautiful building. My mattress was very uncomfortable though and locker was smaller than everyone else’s so I couldn’t fit my bag in there.

This is a great hostel with a lot of potential. The staff were a bit off and the atmosphere of the place was just missing something. Such a shame, because everything else was great. Nice dorms, clean restrooms and a great pool.

Location, security and spaciousness (in your cube) for the deluxe mixed dorm are pros of this place. As is aircon in the rooms, but this is switched off during the day, so the room became musky….. It’s a cute place with character but deep cleaning and a freshen up is necessary. I was not happy too arrive to stained sheets, a filthy mattress protector, a dirty cubicle (which I wiped down myself and cleaned a lot of grime and dirt from) as well marked and scuffed walls.
