    The facility was nice and clean. The staff was super friendly and very helpful, and the rooftop was a great place to hang out. It’s close enough to walk to anywhere you really need to go as well! Great hostel!

    Not the most social place I’ve stayed at. Outside of one night where a lot of us went to a bar together with CJ, I didn’t really speak to anyone who wasn’t in my room. Also the rooms could use AC, but that’s only a minor complaint because it was nice most of the nights I was there

    Location was fantastic close walk to everything. Staff were great beds were comfortable. Free washing hair dryers ironing board all a bonus

    No real communal area apart from the roof terrace which was redundant when it rained. The property wasn’t really clean. They kept putting on an air cleaning machine in the hallways outside my room, the fumes from that made me feel unwell.

    The location is fantastic with shops and a train station less than 100m away.

    Room was tint with no air conditioning. The window had to remain open and it made the room really muggy and hard to be in. The sheets were stained with what looked like blood. Replacement ones were too. Slept on top of own towel.
