Very Good 8.2 From 412 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Super recommended hostel
Best hostel I have ever stayed. The pod can be a little claustrophobic but the room is spacious as the bathroom inside the room. Excellent bedlinen.

Good 6.0
Convenient location for late night check-in and the airport bus stops nearby. No toiletries for the private rooms. I think housekeeping might have come in briefly to take the garbage but no other housekeeping services were provided. The shower requires pressing a button every 5 seconds to conserve water and the water does not drain well. Heat is minimal in the room and cannot be controlled by the guest. Breakfast consists of juice, milk, coffee, tea, bread, and cereal.

The hostel was under construction, so they set me up with the Avalon house. I couldn't have asked for a better location! It was right next to everything I wanted to do. Would certainly stay here again!

You won't regret staying here.
Great location. The airport bus stops very near to the doorstep. Excellent service. Friendly and helpful in every way. Cleanliness is fantastic. Highly recommended. The newly renovated 6 in a room on 2nd floor has curtain for privacy but the 4 in a room on 3rd floor has no curtain on the bed. Kitchen will be closed fro renovation from March 21st 2019 till further notice.
