I had an extremely late check in due to travel, and a very early check out, and Belu made sure I got in without trouble. The facilities were great, the bed was really comfortable and the facilities are excellent.

Great modern hostel right next to where we needed to be. Lovely staff, nice facilities and a big comfy bed. We were a little worried about noise on a Saturday night on Halloween weekend but it was not an issue at all. Will definitely stay again

Best hostel going
Best hostel I've stayed in. I didn't but, if you're a young professional it's a top environment to work, cook and stay at a reasonable price

dorm rooms were very well designed with attention to privacy (curtains for each bed), sills on the side with a usb charging port). Staff were very attentive. Decor was functional, but perhaps a bit spartan.
