3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
You get what you pay for - bed and dorm was clean, but the rest of the hostel left a lot to be desired. It felt very industrial, and the bathroom was hideous.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Nicely updated lobby and hallways; and excellent, helpful staff. While the bed was comfortable, the rooms could use a little love and the bathrooms were just okay. You can’t beat the location, though!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Staff seemed agitated all the time. Rooms were not air conditioned and there aren’t any outlets for in the rooms themselves except for a couple that had to be shared between 10 people. Wouldn’t recommend if you want a good launching point for your trip.
