Important Information

1- Reception hours are 7am through 10pm 7 days a week. If you are arriving outside those hours you must contact us BEFORE the day of arrival to make arrangements. 2- We DO NOT have any female only dorms, you have booked a mixed dorm. 3- We always do our best to get you into a room together but when bookings are made one or two days before your arrival it is unrealistic to expect to be together For example if agency is showing we have 4 beds left in the 4 bed dorms, do not assume that we have a 4 bed dorm available it will more than likely be 4 random beds in different 4 bed dorms. Please email us BEFORE you make a booking to confirm this if it will be a problem.

Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: Its a hard place to find. Went past the tiny door entrance multiple times before I found. The room was so disgusting and 5 males were sleeping in the middle of the day. Even third world slums are better than this place. AVOID AT ALL COST!!!!!!

Liked: The place is really close to everything you need and city center. Nice atmosphare and at the reception is everytime someone. The kitchen is small but you will find everything you need. Everyday there are cleaning and if something is missing you can ask and the staff is friendly and helpfully. For that price it is a perfect place to stay.

Disliked: There is just one shower at each floor, but i had never problems with that, i just had to wait once for 5min. But some more wouldnt be bad.

Liked: Great hostel, good beds and the bathrooms were really clean. The location is amazing, so much food all around and close to the bus stop for the free bus around the city

Disliked: The rooms were boiling hot and the two fans in the room didn't help much at all. Also, the kitchen/common room was really small so you couldn't really hang out there

Liked: For the money this a pretty decent hostel. I enjoyed the common room with the big screen tv and kitchen facilities as well as free wifi. I liked that each room had it's own fridge so you had no issues with stolen food. Beds were comfy. Manager working here was also very accommodating with room changes and holding on to luggage.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked was the limited number of bathrooms plus showers for the amount of people staying here.

Liked: it's very cantral - but thats the only thing I liked about this hostel

Disliked: There are only 2 bathrooms, so in the morning you had to stay in a cue to get in. Also there were cockroaches in the bathrooms. There was no space to sit, because the rooms where that smal and in the kitchen were only 5 seats.
