This hostel has an absolutely huge range of rooms you can choose from. There are the smaller dorms, that sleep 4, 6, or 8 people all the way up to a room that sleeps 33 people (with options in between). The 33 person dorm is the lowest priced, and fits people on triple bunk beds. A privacy curtain gives you a little escape from the other travelers. There are also private capsules available in a 26 bed dorm. Your personal capsule is fully enclosed and soundproof. This unique option is a bit pricier than a bunk bed, but worth a try if you're up for something different.
In addition to the private capules, which give you your own private, soundproofed space, there are double and twin rooms available. These rooms are perfect for couples traveling together who want affordability but also want their own space.
All of the rooms use shared bathrooms. The bathrooms are cleaned regularly and in decent condition with good hot water. There are a large number of guests using the bathrooms, so you can expect the normal inconveniences, but in general they're kept in good condition.
is this hostel's famous, on-site bar. You can head there to watch sports or enjoy a drink and on weekends there are parties that last late into the night. The DJ keeps the music and dancing going strong until 3 AM. If you need to refuel, grab a burger which is surprisingly good and affordable.
The hangout room is a bit smaller than you'd expect for this size hostel, but it's still a comfortable place to relax for a bit. This space, combined with the bar and outdoor terrace, make relaxing with friends easy and comfortable.
The outdoor terrace is a nice place to pass the time when the weather's nice. There are tables where you can enjoy a good meal or a drink, or just chat with friends.

This is a large hostel with all of the amenities that you'd expect from a chain hostel. There are laundry facilities, Wi-Fi access, vending machines, and travel information. There's also an elevator, and breakfast for a small price.
This is a large hostel and the staff can get a bit overwhelmed. The activities and atmosphere are fun, but many guests felt the service could be improved.
Guests frequently complained about the service they received, but this is a large hostel with many employees, so one group's experience does not reflect everyone's. Many guests also complained that the pillows are very uncomfortable. Also note that there is no kitchen.
