Super clean in both the room and the communal areas which is rare for a hostel. Good location on K Road where there is lots going on on a Sat night and an easy 5-10 min walk to the city centre. Big dark TV room is not really conducive to meeting people so if you're looking for travel mates this...

The rooms were simple, but quiet and clean. There is a no alcohol allowed in the hostel which was perfect for us because we were looking for a quiet place and most of the...

The rooms are clean but very poor soundproofing. The one without window is just stifling (no natural light and no fresh air). The bathroom is poor furnished (no bathmat, no hand towel) we need to pass a mope after our shower. The kitchen looks dirty most of time. And you have to pay for the wifi (very excessive price) after...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was fine but would never stay here again as a traveller. It mostly seems to have long term stayers here so not a fun atmosphere. The staff weren't very friendly and the kitchen was tiny with room for only 4 people to sit! The bathrooms were fine but again not the cleanest....

I stayed here for one night this month (July 2015). Staying in a single room but sharing bathroom option. Arriving very late (past 10:30pm) the receptionist had waited up for me, she was friendly and helpful on arrival and took me to my room. The room itself was very basic and the bed was very small but comfortable. Staying on...

Hi D_Daisy, Thank you very much for leaving us your review. I am so sorry to hear the Saturday night K-road noise has kept you awake/woken you up. We do have more quieter room on the other side of the building. A bit too late, but If you decide to come back for a night, just let the reception know:)!...

We stayed for a short time in the hostel, as we soon found a van to live in, but it was definitely a very nice stay. There is a clean kitchen with lots of kitchen materials. The location is ideal to explore the city and there are many nice (more alternative) coffee and lunch places in the neighbourhood. But what...
