    This is a great place to stay if you're traveling solo. The staff was kind an friendly and very responsive to emails. I completely forgot to pack a power adapter and I was able to rent one for a small deposit. Overall great place!

    I stayed in the 10 person female dorm. The room was full, but I never had a reason to worry about my possessions or personal safely. The beds were surprisingly comfortable, and the bathroom was private.
