    Loved it! Was a great hostel and made some great friends

    highly recommended, a great stay, clean and vibey

    The host, Paul, has an excellent vibe and is very welcoming. There are lots of young people at the Hostel and it would be easy to meet people if you tried. The rooms are in very good condition, as well as the bathrooms (there is even hot water!). The staff will go the extra mile for you every time! My only gripe was that the staff did not offer to clean your room or empty the bins unless you specifically asked them to - the staff should take initiative to enter the rooms and clear the bins, sweep the floors and change the sheets/blankets! However, the bathrooms are cleaned regularly. A great place overall! The Wifi doesn't really work.

    This hostel was very new and very clean. Everything was great! Could ask for a place that is that cheap and in that good of condition. Definitely worth the stay. The atmosphere was awesome, easy to meet people with free Rum and Coke homemade from Big Paul. This was an amazing hostel, would absolutely recommend!

    This is my second time with Big Paul Hostel, they are improving a lot from the poor service to almost excellent service. The hostel owner Paul is very hands on and making sure everyone having a good time.
