Even though we paid the money for a room with four ppl, they just changed to the one with six ppl without telling us and repayment. The room was also terrible, very small, dark, crowdy, and not tidy. I won't stay there never.

It's a nice idea to have "units" in a hostel because it appears more like a flat than a hostel. In my opinion it cuts down the sociality and it's also a big problem in the morning if you are in a female unit with about 10 other girls. Imagine how many girls might wake up before you do and...

Hi Nina, Thank you for your review, we are glad you appreciated our unique apartment style living, we love it to. None of our dorms have 10 people, the max is 8, with options of 4 bedroom dorms! We are sorry you had to queue to use the shower! Safe onward travels.

The hostel is not too big, which gives a nice and cozy atmosphere. The location is perfect, 5 minutes away from the beach and the shopping center. You can take the tram from there anywhere you like. I liked that they organize diners, very cheep and a nice way to meet other people. Altogether a very nice hostel!

I spent in this backpackers hostel one night, and it was the worst night of my 2 weeks trip. Despite the hostel has a good location, the rooms are awful. I slept in a tiny and filthy room with 3 more people (there were cockroaches in the bathroom). My bunk bed hadn't a ladder, so the stuff provide us a...

Great social location for the young at heart. Great parties and group club outings. Appartment style is awesome to chat with flat mates on deck and lounge. Staff are amazing and friendly and helpful. Slept really well in the 4 bed mixed dorm, excellent blackout curtains and no noise overnight.

We stayed here for just one night. Staff were friendly but we had to wait until almost 3 until we could check in due to the room having not been prepared for us. We stayed in a private room which was a bit grubby. The common areas next to the room had a lot of potential but again were grubby...
