The hostel is really clean and has a nice aesthetic but that’s about it. I think you’re paying more for the look than anything else. The restrooms are cleaned often throughout the day but there are no air fresheners... so at the end of the day/evening with the hot air and humidity the whole corridor starts to smell bad. Also, almost half of the over head showers weren’t working and the placement of hooks within the shower were close to the water so everything would get splashed on ... especially when you’re forced to use the hand held shower head. If you’re into doing your makeup, the light quality is really poor for that. It’s like doing your makeup at a club. The rooms have really nice blackout curtains and mood lighting. The mattress and pillow is okay. The safe is ridiculously small and at the foot of the bed/inside the curtain so kind of awkward. So bring an extra lock for your luggage/backpack. Also, the bedroom door opens inward which is unsafe. There are some pieces of paper hanging up advertising food tours and a music event but it’s really minimal. I imagined the hostel would be way more inclusive and community oriented than that. The staff doesn’t interact much with the guests, which was fine for me but I feel like (since it’s such a big place), if I brought an outsider into my room, no one would notice. The rooftop is just it. A rooftop with a bunch of platforms to sit on. But the location isn’t bad... pretty close to a lot and isn’t very touristy.
