Property condition

I hate leaving bad reviews, but in this case I think I have to. I don't normally stay at hostels, but I have stayed at 2 the past 3 weeks, this one and a surf hostel. This has to be one of the worst experiences I have had in a very long time staying anywhere. Other then price there isn't much I can say that is positive about the place. There seems to be long term tenants that live out of the hostel while they work in the area, and most of the interactions have not been positive ones. Poor circulation, means the smoke from people smoking from the court yard fills my room in the morning, and at times you are sure someone is smoking in the room (although there is rule against this) The beds are large, which is a nice change, but the smell was too much to handle. Perhaps I was just unlucky and got sheets that were not washed well, or that the prior person had an odor that lingered after they left. Several times I've been woken up by other residents because of my snoring. I do believe I could be loud at times, but this is the first time in years anyone has done such a thing. I've woken up several times to find random items thrown into my bed, perhaps to make me stop snoring while I slept. One resident actually woke me out of sleep. Bottom line, pay extra stay somewhere else Staying in the 10 person dorm

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

nice place, large and spacious rooms, large wide beds (a plus for couples, almost a double size) the lockers are very basic and won't fit much, think bathroom mirror size cabinet. ok for laptop etc... but can easily be pulled back and accessed. seemed very cliquey as a lot of long termer's there. rooms not very secure as they couldn't be locked and most of the time doors left open. very noisy and sound travels with very high ceilings and windows up high always left open for ventilation I assume? would stay again. good value

Adequate. Not cheap though compared to B&Bs. Very noisy with traffic. Bed very uncomfortable.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

hard to find with a huge lack of signage - the warm welcome goes a long way once you are inside. light airy kitchen with good food/fridge storage but would seriously benefit from an oven or two. good location, grear sized beds (please get new pillows) - nice outside space especially the roof terrace. great variety of guests and a real melting pot internationally.

Stayed 7 nights in Feb 2019
