Recently stayed at the duo housing for 2 days on the 16th November, having never stayed in a hostel as a lone traveler i was a little nervous, but on arrival all nerves were left at the front door! Great place with great staff and guests, check in was quick and easy and as expected everything was explained clearly, breakfast... More

Some of the staff are rude, helpless and unfriendly, there is no space between beds, beds were not comfortable, I couldn't sleep because the other mate's feet were hitting my head while he was sleeping, the manager didn't bother himself to ask me in person what's happened after he knew from an email written by one of his staff and...

Been here with a wife. A cozy home for a few days. Friendly stuff. Friendly guests. Quite slow internet over Wi-Fi and few kinda weird rules however. There's a supermarket in a few steps and plenty of places to have a lunch.

The place is perfect for a short trip for young people. Friends who wish to just get a place to sleep and spend the rest of their time in the capital. The mixed dorms are cheap and there is free breakfast (pancakes!) every morning until 9:30. Walking to the white house in only 15 minutes, after which it is only... More

I stayed seven nights, there are no lockers to storage luggage only some small ones to store valuable goods. The place is really small, during the "breakfast"(just pancakes) sometimes there is no place to sit down. In the living room sometimes there is no place to sit down. TERRIBLE Wi-fi service. I strongly do not recommend this place.

Staff was nice, except owner not friendly and arrogant. Can't drink alcohol after 10pm. The room was okay, the bathrooms were gender separated, pretty clean in general. Breakfast only with small Pancakes, you get tired of it after 3 days. A little expensive for the price.

Duo Housing is the perfect hostel. We stayed for 2 nights, the housing is clean and well maintained and the amenities are good. The staff are the best I have encountered from any hostel I have stayed at, they are friendly, helpful and easy to get along with. We stayed 1 night in a 4 bed dorm and 1 night... More

I've stayed in room with 12 beds; it's so full with beds that I didn't know where to leave my luggage. No plugs in for upper beds. As some people already wrote, at checking in I had a feeling the person wants to get rid of me asap. Nobody told me about breakfast. There was also no towels on the... More

We (party of three)stayed four nights in a private room for four. The location is nice but otherwise we were not impressed. The place is probably okay choice if you're in your early twenties and like to party. We however found several issues disturbing: - You were forced to sign a paper that you had read the house rules.
