So this is the first time I'm making a review for a hostel since I know how big of help it is knowing the reviews of other people before checking in.
If you're looking for an affordable and decent hostel then you've found the right one. I, together with my boyfriend and my friend checked in for a shared room and it was spacious! The only problem we had is I guess the aircondition. Wasn't so cold at night except maybe when your bed is facing the aircondition itself.
Staffs are friendly, once, I asked the staff at the middle of the night for something and that person really took time to help me find what Im looking for.
Breakfast is small but decent, cereals, bread, coffee, tea, just a little something to fill you up in the morning. Good part is you can use their kitchen if you want to prepare your own food.
There is also a Casino supermarket one minute away from the hostel, and the port is also around 5 minutes from it. All good!!!
