Positive Reviews

Affordable stay

The hostel is very budget-friendly, and those who are looking to save some money for travelling and exploring, find the accommodation quite satisfactory for the price they pay.

Handy location

The close proximity of a number of shopping centres, as well as the many unique local attractions, bars, night clubs and cafes make this hostel's location quite attractive for most. Guests also comment that it's easy to get from the airport to the hostel, and that there's a bus station nearby too.

Staff are super helpful

Staff are always up for a chat, and travellers find them very well versed when it comes to the immediate area. They will happily assist with advice, or directions to the best attractions or eateries.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms should improve

Guests often complain that showers don't work all that well. The water sometimes comes out at a rate of just one drop at a time, and when it comes to the cleanliness level in the bathrooms, that needs to receive a little extra attention too.

Some rooms without windows

Visitors who end up staying in a room without a window and air conditioner find them a bit stuffy, cramped, and not all that comfortable. They prefer to spend their time outdoors where the air is much fresher.

Noisy at ground level

The staff start work early in the morning, and those who find themselves close to the staff quarters complain about the din they make while getting ready for the day's duties.
