Very Good 8.2 From 76 reviews

Poor 2.0
Not going back there
The room felt really old and dirty. The bathroom was terrible, it wasn't dirty but definitely need renovation, looked extremely old. The hallway was big but the carpet was super dirty. The kitchen was well equipped, except for the stove, it takes hours to cook there and you can use only one or two pans a at time because it's an induction stove and they only have one induction pan.... Definitely the worst part was the bed, I couldn't sleep there, wether I moved or the other guy moved the bed would shake like if it was an earthquake. I wouldn't recommend this hostel for someone who wants a good rest.

Upstairs bar was still open after the "mandated" time of no yelling after 2300. They closed at midnight and was still playing loud music. Just that one small thing, but otherwise awesome.

Short and sweet
My flight landed pretty late. And I couldn’t get to the hostel until after midnight. The front desk clerk was very welcoming though, and I was able to check in with no problems, and I was very happy with the whole set-up. I only stayed one night, but I was very happy with the location and living space in general.

Bed Bugs
Stayed 2 nights, single room, two twin beds. Failed to check the bed for bed bugs during our first night. On our last night, we found several bed bugs. My younger sister had been bitten all over her arms and legs.
