No curfew
Nice place but do remember not a good place to get solid nights rest as people come in at 3 am - drunk or some snore loudly... other than that... just good for the money

Recommend for young backpackers
All room fans have remote controls They were not labeled as to which room each remote was for. A staff member brought arm loads of remotes to my room but could never match my fan with its remote. On the positive side staff did try to make my stay good. Air conditioning was excellent I wanted to shorten my stay as I wanted more luxury than offered by a hostel and I was given a full refund.

Great place to hook up
If you’re looking for fun, this is the right place. Tons of young single girls from all over the world looking for fun, if you know what I mean. The staff takes you to the beach & organizes pool games then at night the fun continues till you end up in a hot chick’s bed.

Good location, questionable pool and service.
Good: Near Central station. The cleaning staff are really nice. Met some fun fellow travellers. Bad: Don't expect any peace, or privacy here. Bed ceiling is too low to sit upright. Definitely a party hostel and there is drunken rowdiness in the rooms and the halls all night, every night. Quiet time is posted for decoration and isnt followed. We saw a heated and drunken argument in the stairwell and couples arguing in the hallways at 3am. With all that alcohol flowing, the guests are left to self regulate if something gets out of hand. The whole place is a rooftop bar first and hostel second, so if that's your thing, you might enjoy it here. Would definitely shower after using the pool or avoid it altogether. It made us feel itchy. We asked the staff about it and they shrugged saying it's cleaned regularly. The dinner was chaos. All 3 of us are vegetarians. I ate some of the beans on the plate before realizing it was a meat dish. Waitress was nonchalant and unapologetic and gave our semi eaten food to the next table! At check out, they will insist you give them a positive review on the spot. My deposit money is in his one hand, their tablet is in the other and they ask me to take a minute and leave a positive review. We told them that if we leave a review, it won't be all positive because of the food service and the pool. Guy stopped smiling, handed us our money and walked away without saying anything.
