Negative Reviews

Hostel gets noisy

The hostel gets noisy at times, especially when other guests aren't considerate of those sleeping. Visitors report that the walls appear to be thin, as well, so noise carries throughout the property.

Small dorm rooms

Guests complain that the shared rooms are small and get very cramped when all six beds are being used. Visitors say that there is barely enough space to walk between the beds in these rooms.

No activities

Reviews indicate the hostel staff doesn't do much in the way of organising tours and activities. Guests mention they would like to see more activities available at the property.
