THis could be a really cool place to stay, but due to the dryer which seems to be running 24 hours a day the temperature in this hostel is like 40 degree celsius. Otherwise it is clean and the staff is helpfull.

The concept of this places takes a little getting used to: It's both a bar and a hostel in the same building, but kept separate so the two will not disturb each other. This is very well done, since the bar does not disturb your sleep in the dormitories even though it is close by. There are some small inconveniences...

The Red Emperor Hostel was perhaps the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Great atmosphere, comfortable beds and spacious rooms, clean, modern and really cool staff. The girls at the reception were always up for small talk or to give advice on what to do around town. There is a bar right next door that had something going on...

A nice bar if you dont mind a bit of a worn-and-torn look of the place. Its great if you want to meet people from around the world and play a bit of pool or table football while enjoying a nice cool beverage.

Home away from home. Awesome staff, and the coolest visitors. The bar is a laid back place during the day and always something to do in the evenings. Live music, bar quiz, beerbong and karaoke to name a few.

This hostel is one of the best I have come across. The staff here were amazing, especially Maddy. The guy serving beer, i think he was South African, was great to chat to. The hostel was clean, welcoming and comfy. The location next to the old town was perfect and close to the tram network to access the bus station.

This is a fantastic hostel if you're looking for something cheap, central and comfortable. The open kitchen area allows to prepare and eat meals without being on top of anyone. There's a supermarket right across the road. They have board games and a little bar in the common area it's great! They also have a bar with organised events. Our...
