      Friendly staff, bad WiFi, just an OK place”

      The staff is very friendly, and play nice music in the lobby/common area. The hostel has several common areas with comfortable sofas. What is really nice is the free coffee/tea/water service and that the towel is included. The WiFi is, however, very slow or not working at all. The female dormroom (no window) is quiet and spacious, the mattress a little too thin and the bed made noises when I turned around. Unfortunately there was no ensuite bathroom which is quite common in female dorms. The shower heads are really great, hot water is available and they provide shower gel (but no handsoap). The shower rooms are small though and it would be nice if they would provide some water tight cabinet in the shower room to put your clothes in. When I was there the other guests kept to themselves; there was little or no interaction which I didn't like. Also, it would have been nice to have a all barefoot hostel. In all, its definitely a hostel you can consider staying at, but it didn't stand out.

      Decent stay ”

      Single rooms are pretty decent w/ AC but not as clean as one would like. Sheets feel pretty old but for the money is okay. Read some reviews about the heavier set receptionist being pretty rude and he was indeed as advertised, try to avoid if possible.
