        The location is great, and very easy to find. The staff is helpful. Breakfast is ok.

        No windows in the dorms, not mentioned on the website. Also, not enough bathrooms, those do not have windows and smell of mildew as the doors are always closed. Could also use more cleaning.

        Location and the staff were excellent

        Bathrooms were filthy. Near the bathrooms it was very stinky. Proper ventilation needs to be arranged in the bathrooms.

        The staff here made the hostel. Not only were they helpful, they were also genuinely friendly. The location of the hostel is also really good; there are lots of food options within walking distance. The rooftop lounge is amazing at night!

        One of the best hostels I have stayed. Rooftop of the hostel is really cool and comfortable. Free food and drinks there all day too! Staff is very helpful. The location is perfect, everywhere I can walk to from the hostel.

        Nothing much, cafe downstairs is not opened yet but the staff mentioned it will be ready really soon
