Positive Reviews

Friendly Staff Members

The staff members were found to be friendly and attentive to guest requests. They were not imposing and kept the common areas clean and organized.

Nice Vibe in the Hostel

Guests enjoyed the nice vibe in the hostel. There was a nice wooden patio, a koi pond and a spacious lounge area. The hostel had various places for guests to mingle.

Clean Hostel and Rooms

Guests enjoyed the fact that there were no shoes allowed in the common areas. They felt this added to the clean aspect of the hostel, and were happy with the daily housekeeping. It is nice for a hostel to be well-kept.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi Service

The Wi-Fi was found to be less than ideal for guests who needed to use in on occasion. It was slow and at times not usable, which made it difficult to get things done online.

Thin Walls

Guests felt the walls were too thin or did not do a good job of reducing the noise from outside. They could hear other guests or what was going on outside quite clearly.

Dark Rooms

Guests found the rooms to not have proper lighting. There were rooms with no windows or with no proper lights, which made them feel uncomfortable. A simple window can change the ambiance of the rooms.
