Liked: The room was nicely-decorated and it was big.

Disliked: It was a house with 2 storeys and there is only one toilet which is located on the 1st floor. The toilet on our level (2nd floor) was not usable. Towels and instructions were not given so we need to keep troubling the owners, luckily they are really nice. One more important thing is that there is no lift, we need to carry our luggage all the way to the 4th floor. Not recommended for old people or people with heavy luggage. Highly recommended for light backpackers!

Liked: The property was very easy to find and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. While there I was upgraded to a private room at no extra cost, and they provide amenities that make traveling light easier. This property had a funky vibe which I loved and a great balcony to relax at night.

Disliked: The only thing negative I would say is that the rooms could be a little cleaner, but overall I have no complaints as I only used the room as a place to sleep and keep my things while I was out during the day.

Liked: Alex and the people working for him were very kind and helpful. The private room I had booked was spacious, though for some reason there were two beds in the room which left little space for walking around. Bathrooms were clean, area was very convenient, and the outside chill area was refreshing and beautiful.Security was pretty good; keys and/or code numbers are required at more than one point.

Disliked: The top floor of the hostel is a bit like something you'd see on a show about hoarders. There are definitely a few fire hazards.Plan on getting your own coffee/tea/juice in the morning: the provided stuff is way past expiration.
