    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Conveniently located (one avenue away from the local train or 10 min walk from the express trains), nice amenities : lots of utensils (pans, cutlery, plates, bowls, cookers, etc) in the kitchen. Nice lounge place with couches and a pool table too. The hostel also has a little café shop which is nice if you don't want to (or can't!) go out.

    Best Stay Ever!

    Absolutely amazing experience and would recommend to anyone open to Hostels. If it's your first one, I would recommend this one. This is one of the nicest, and is full of people of all cultures, a community vibe where everyone helps one another is the norm. Terrific stay, and got me hooked on hosteling.
