Liked: The staff really make this place, Dominique and all the team give you a very warm welcome, are always able to offer good tips on what to do, and seem genuinely interested in making sure you have a good time.

Disliked: Three storey bunk beds can be hard to climb as there is nothing to hold onto at the top. The lockers are a bit battered so very noisy whenever opened or closed.

Liked: The staff are excellent, the location is great and the atmosphere is really good. Really easy to meet other travellers and hang out in the various communal areas and the staff are knowledgeable about the best places to go in the day and in the night. Great hostel

Disliked: The rooms can be a little cramped with lots of beds in a fairly small space but more opportunity to meet people I guess!

Liked: Location is awesome.Staff is great.The Bar is kind off good, althoug it could change the very old furniture, especially the big sofa. Breakfast is good.

Disliked: The beds are 3 stores high. I am a 96kg man, and they gave me the 3º store bed (even thoug I had a really early booking). It was hard to climb all the way to the top and I even fell on the ground once trying to get down, hurting both my arms.There is no Air conditioning.The room is way too smal for 9 people.The bathroom was clean, but did not have a thing to hold the soap bar, it was a problem taking a shower and having to leave the soap on the floor.Lockers are old, and really smal too.
