Negative Reviews


Noisy Nuisances

Many guests found the hostel to be very noisy. Many guests tend to arrive late at night and even if your room is filled with early birds, the sound insulation in the building isn't the best. Guests complained about hearing neighbouring rooms' conversations, and slamming doors in the hallways. It is highly recommended that you bring some earplugs on your trip to ensure a good night's sleep,


Small Spaces

The rooms at the hostel are of decent size but can become very cramped at full capacity, especially if your fellow roommates are carrying large suitcases. Several guests also found the bathrooms and showers to be very small as well. If you're looking to change in privacy, it can be tough.



The Wi-Fi signal is reported to be weak in some of the rooms.
