Liked: Good hostel, clean and well-equipped, nice kitchen, game room... Free lockers in the rooms, bathrooms are in each room (!), separate toilet from shower so no problems sharing bathrooms.All in all a good place if you aren't looking to meet people

Disliked: I didn't like the atmosphere, the place is big and people didn't really talk to each other.Lockers are free, so that's good.It's 50 pesos to keep your bags there on day of checkout.

Liked: Met some really cool people here but the security is questionable as you have to leave your locker key (provided by hostel) at the reception.

Liked: The dorm was spacious, clean comfortable and warm. The lockers are big enough to put all your belongings inside.

Disliked: I think the hostel lacked atmosphere and the kitchen is seriously lacking in equipment. A comfortable common area would improve this. It feels like a cafeteria.Also the charge for keeping luggage for a day (50 pesos) is very expensive.

Liked: Locker in the room

Disliked: Huge hostel and so you are really anonymous there. I didn't like the kitchen because the facilities were poor. Not many pots and pans to find and same with cutlery. The fridges haven't been cleaned. The cleaning women sometimes take the dirty pots and put them into cub boards without cleaning
