Good Hostel, great location
The location was perfect, the staff was also very helpful, Wifi worked really good, the only thing was the cleanlines of the showers/toilets area which could be improved
Hector, us3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great value and very convenient
A good 'flashpacker' option- the blind gave the pod a real sense of privacy, and the pod itself (mine was a side entry one) was quite spacious. It's not really a hostel for socialising, but with everything in George Town so close I was hardly there anyway. I never had any issues waiting for showers or the toilet, and the bathroom was always clean enough. I had to check out early for a flight, and there was nobody on reception to reimburse my deposit, however when I emailed the management they offered to send me the money by PayPal very quickly, so I can't complain.

Value for Money, Clean and all rounder
Everything was pretty good. I liked the strong AC. Except the wifi kept dropping out and it was frustrating to have to log in numerous times... Also the common corridor smelt because of water seepage issues.
Sumei, au7 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Nice hostel with a book lounge
Nice, quiet hostel with comfortable beds and a decent amount of privacy. The bathrooms are clean with hot showers. There is also a nice hang-out area and book lounge upstairs. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful hostel experience.
