Positive Reviews

Awesome rooftop terrace

The hostel offers such a relaxed vibe, and travellers find that spending time up on the rooftop terrace is one of their favourite pastimes. The view of the city, especially at night, is stunning, and socializing with others and making new friends is so easy from such a lovely vantage point.

Clean, cosy and charming

The hostel is considered by visitors to be really well cleaned. The interiors are said to be charming, especially with the art decor on every floor. This homely vibe is one of the main reasons guests say they will strongly consider coming back in the future.

Terrific restaurants nearby

There are tons of small restaurants, fine-dining restaurants and authentic barbecue eateries surrounding this hostel. Visitors like that the many culinary delights in the area provide them with a range of options each day of their stay.

Negative Reviews

No elevator

Travellers who happen to get a room on one of the upper levels find that it's a bit of a struggle to get up the stairs with all their luggage. They mention that an on-site elevator would go a long way to alleviate the hard work.

Breakfast can improve slightly

Although guests appreciate the self-service breakfast options in the morning, they would like to have more choices available. They find it's a bit simple, but regardless, the coffee is considered to be rather great.
