0/10 if i could. Arrived and there was no water. No apologies, no partial refund, just, 'well, this is how it is.' There was a very weird atmosphere with argumentative and defensive guests who made the dorm experience extremely unpleasant. Staff was hardly helpful on any fronts. But the last straw was when an American guest was stabbed to death in the kitchen. I checked out that day and still haven't gotten my refund...

This was my worse hostel experience I have gone through in my entire life. The staff made me feel like everything was my fault whenever I asked a question. I was told after 8pm they won’t sell water and was to order uber eats and got laughed at to my face. No towels and was told to use my T-Shirt. The beds were very itchy and people were complaining. The pool is the size of a pond and there is no bar. On my last day sadly a guy got stabbed and murdered in the kitchen over an argument.

Excellent choice if your looking for a true hostel experience. Lots of travelers passing through, the environment is inviting and its really easy to meet new people. The location is perfect and everything you’ll need is in walking distance.
