Quietest hostel I’ve ever stayed at. It’s on a busy street that can be a little noisy but the hostel itself is really peaceful. Great free breakfast and coffee that I didn’t notice mentioned on their listing. Might not be the right place for you if you’re looking to meet a lot of people or party but otherwise fantastic.

Amazing stay
The room is really big and clean daily. All the staffs are so friendly and helpful and chill. Male shower is small but hot water comes out immediately and stay hot which is nice. And a lot of bathrooms so there’s always a empty one you can use! It’s a nice area a lot of food places close by and grocery store. But need to take bus to metro. Free coffee in the morning!!! Big plus. Kitchen got everything you need to cook. Rooftop is really nice to just chill. Free ear plug at reception is a live life saver cause I got roommates that snores 😵‍💫 Would definitely stay again!

First time staying at a Hostel, and to be honest, it was very enjoyable, everything was clean, the other guests were pretty cool and somehow everything was really close by.

6/10 Okay


Liked: Property conditions & facilities
This property was just okay, the positive was that is was cheap. The staff were quiet odd, they made out like any question or request was an inconvenience. They request that you let them know if you will be checking in after 6pm as they are only staffed (which I later found wasn't the case, the place was staffed at all times) until that time and alternative arrangements would be made for check-in (they charge your credit card and give you the pin codes to enter the property, if you arrive before 6pm they charge you when you arrive and see the staff member) a person I shared one of the rooms with had told me that they checked in before 6pm, however, were informed there card had already been charged which seemed a little dodgy. There are no elevators in this property which may not seem like a big deal until you have to carry all your luggage up and down the staircase they have which can be dangerous. The pin code locks to the rooms were very temperamental when trying to open them which was very time consuming sometimes and it also makes a lot of noise probably waking up others in your room. This hostel is also in a fairly dodgy area as well but you can easily walk to places such as Hollywood etc

For me, as I am a vegetarian, I couldn't find many restaurants nearby, appropriate for me. Also, not many shops were available

Weird vibes at this property. Staff was extremely rude. Honored my first reservation and cancelled a future booking without notice.

Even though I only stayed here for two nights I had a really pleasant stay. The property was clean, there's a lot of space in the form rooms and even though you live with other people you still have some form of privacy and quietness because everyone mind's their own business and goes on about their day. Still, the guests and host were super lovely! I will definitely come back here on my next trip! :)
