Great location, room, and staff! The rooftops and pool were a great plus. Food on the roof is better than expected and the drinks were amazing.

The hostel was awesome. You meet a lot of people and there is always activities on the rooftop at night. The two building across each other was good that you can visit the rooftop and pool where ever the party is at. The only issues you run into is bringing guest in. You can only bring one guest and you need a private room to be able to bring them.

My absolute favorite chain of hostels. As a solo female traveler I highly recommend. Look it’s a hostel, it’s not going to be the cleanest or most luxurious but what you will find is even better.. FANTASTIC character.. hella cool staff, opportunities to meet other like minded travelers. I felt safe the entire time. The location is perfect.. walking distance to everything. Don’t think twice. Book it!

I will be completely honest ok I travel a lot, not picky at all, First my boyfriend arrived they tried to rob him the first day outside the hotel and then when I arrived second day they tried to rob him again but with a knife one block from the hotel so I talk to the employees he told me you need to call orbitz couldn’t do anything (like always everyone throwing the ball to each other) so in the morning the 3 day I talked to a lady at the front desk and I told her that I really wanted to move from hotel she said ok you have to talk to orbitz ok orbitz is on the phone they said you guys are the ones that have to do it she was very rude to be honest and I wasn’t I was just scared soo she told me my manager is in a meeting so we can’t do anything now ok so I waited and waited from 10:45am to 5pm they never called me nothing i was sad and disappointed so i was like ok ill just stay and enjoy my vacation I’m not going to do this another day have to have fun so I stayed. Wait for the 4th day we go upstairs to enjoy the view they have a good view suddenly we see a guy with his body completely cover of bed bugs bites and my boyfriend had 3 bites from the first day he arrived but we thought it was something else, but no we realized it was bed bugs hahaha this is like a movie hu anyways we let it go we drink upstairs (the manager bar upstair treats his employees very bad it was sad)5th day guess what happens they knock the door at 9am to say they were going to fumigate worst exper ev
