Negative Reviews

Loud atmosphere at night

There is a bar on-site and this hostel is very popular with young backpackers. Consequently there is usually quite a lot of noise in the evenings which is regularly said to be loud and disruptive. Guests report not being able to get a good night's sleep and being woken up at several points due to shouting or drunken behaviour.

No air-conditioning

The rooms of this hostel do not have air-conditioning and this is a factor mentioned by dozens of reviews. Guests find it to be uncomfortable in the summer months and suggest that the fans do not cool the room sufficiently.

Old and small rooms

Many guests report the rooms of this hostel to feel old with poor quality equipment. Beds are described as uncomfortable by a number of reviews, plus the rooms are also said to be too small for the amount of beds occupying them.
