I have stayed in several hostels in all different countries, and this hostel was one of the worsts hostel I ever stayed at.

Staff are all very friendly and helpful, especially Remy and Cam, who kept me company at the bar when I didn't know anyone. Beds are comfy and good value for money. Very welcoming at check in, and they help you find work and set up a bank account etc.

This was lovely and the beds are really comfortable and the rooms nice and spacious. However, the cleanliness of this hostel is awful. My room was on level 6, the same...

Front desk staff are lovely and helpful, but the positives end there. I booked the "female sanctuary" room after looking at photos on official website, which showed a couch and two ladies hanging out, lots of color: Actual place looks like a run-down prison room! Windows are welded shut, so the heat and the smell billowed up all day; we'd...
