    Our stay here was very good. Very nice place, minimalist/hipster decoration. Thouroughly clean at all times, the bathroom was particularly enjoyable. Location is extremely central and the staff warm and nice. Only negative point was the breakfast that was not as satisfying as the rest...More

    If you plan to walk around all day around Georgetown it’s a great spot to come every now and then to take a break from the overwhelming heat. Have a cup of tea or coffee, available 24/7 and hang around the spacious and modern lounges....More

    Fantastic place in the middle of the streetart, streetfood and the culture of Georgetown. Rooms are fine, breakfast is good. Enough showers and toilets. Owner is in for a good talk, Social.. Will help you in whatever you need.

    Perfect location. Hostel had comfortable beds and a decent breakfast. The hostel staff were very helpful in suggesting places to eat and pointing out the street art locations. Not the most sociable hostel, but it was easy enough to meet people.
