Fabulous 8.6 From 118 reviews

Very good 8.0
Come for the Vibe
I love the vibe and location of this place. It is one of the coolest places I have stayed in a while. My only discount was that my bedding was sprinkled in someone's hair and one of the showers didn't drain properly so water would sit and smell each day, so it didn't feel exceptionally clean. But service was quick and kind and I did see a very thorough cleaning staff each day. I would probably give it another shot. I just think they could use a few upgrades based on the amount of traffic.

Hotel-level quality and comfort
Excellent stay for a private room at a hostel. Amenities closer to hotel-level quality (quality and style even better than some hotels I've stayed at), but just expect the basics. Incredibly comfortable bed, great shower and private bathroom.

Very good 8.0
Great location. Very hip hostel. Uses QR code to unlock room door. Had a twin room with bunk beds. Room had a huge private bathroom, no shower curtain, so whole bath room got wet including toilet seat, no mirror in bathroom. Verticals lights in room blinded and irritated the eyes. No table or chair provided, can only sit on the lower bed and put things on floor. Good food at the restaurant, English menu is on webpage, staff speak good English. Coffee at breakfast a little too diluted. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall had a good experience at this hostel.
