Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
perfect location, very decent for the price; very sweet and friendly vibes in the dining and common area where backpackers from all over the world cook, eat, work on their computers, chat together. breakfast is simple but not bad at all - tea/coffee, bread/bagel, milk cereal and fruits.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service
I arrived at approximately 1:30am due to a flight delay. Check in was quick and simple. Room was very warm when I entered. My personal light at my bed was disconnected and there was no electrical outlet nearby. I was also not able to charge my phone because of this. Washrooms regularly seemed to be running low on tissue. Expect a continental breakfast so don't expect an egg, bacon, sandwich made to order as others have mentioned. On the positive side, the staff here was really friendly and will help you with your reasonable needs. Great hostel group activities.
