I stayed here for thee nights in February. The staff were really nice, The Wifi is good. The beds were nice and there are lots of activities on during the day and in the evenings which are organised by the hostel. Its a great way to get to know other people. I'd happily stay here again.

I stayed in the 4 bed female room. The room was clean and spacious. It had 4 lockers and sink as well as the bunk beds. Each room requires a key card to enter so I felt very safe. The shared restroom was right across from my room. It was clean and I never had an issue with not being...

Tried both the female only dorm and the private ensuite room. Both are fine, just that the day I stayed in the female ensuite dorm, the hot water in the bath was not working, so it defeats the purpose of paying extra money to stay in the female only ensuite dorm! Love the amenities and facilities provided by the hostel....

Good hostel, but expensive for what it offers. I didn't like the fact we had to clean our own dishes. Breakfast was fair. Crew was cool and nice. Very good group activities. The location is perfect !!!
