The Hostel is very nice and in a good location, clean room, pretty quiet at night, and nice lounges and hang out areas but asking for 5$ to store luggage after 1pm is a little much in my opinion, it should be free like in any other hostel I stayed at before

Hello! Thank you so much for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us....we really appreciate it! Unfortunately, we are very limited in our luggage storage space and need to make sure we have enough room for the arrivals of the day to store their belongings as well. We do hear you though and will re-evaluate our system as we want to make sure our guests are 100% happy with us as much as we can. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us and hope to see you again soon. Safe travels!

Was in a room with a loud snorer! He was also noisy exiting and entering the room and walked loudly in his flip flops! It was a bummer and pretty annoying when you’re trying to sleep.

Hello! We are sorry to hear about the unfortunate sleeper in your room. Staying in a shared accommodation can sometimes be challenging and we are sorry you encountered this. We do offer free ear plugs at our front desk to help combat such situations when they occur. We do hope the other parts of your stay were lovely and we appreciate you choosing to come and visit us! We wish you safe continued travels!
