This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's a really nice hostel. I would recommend to everyone.
The neighbourhood is not the best, but the other hostel is just down the same street so if you're planning to stay in a hostel it doesn't really matter.
It's a small hostel, so you can easily find some friends. Also the backpackers and staff are really nice people.
There is a bar right under the hostel where you can get beer for $2.75 in happy hours and always meet some interesting people.
Don't hesitate to book! ;)
