I would suggest hotel to have some hot milk served for tea during breakfast. Rest all is Good.
I was staying in one of the 14 or 16 person rooms, because you know, poor traveller life. The bed was clean and comfortable, and there are additional storage boxes under the bed, that can be closed if you have a padlock - I didn't have one, but it wasn't even needed. Sometimes people can be noisy in the night, which is not the hostel's fault, obviously. Make sure you have earplugs. The staff members were friendly and helpful. On one of the days we even received a free beer coupon that can be used when you eat in the hostel's restaurant - yaaay! The shower rooms with the separated cabins were spacious and you had enough privacy. Water pressure and temperature were excellent. Also there are kitchens, that however seem to be a bit over-used, they serve all your requirements with kettle, toaster, fridges, and cutlery.
Enjoyed our short stay
Staff was very responsive to our request to change rooms. Rooms had a nice (small) outside sun deck.
It's a little far from the tourist area (shops and restaurants) but that might be an advantage as we got more exercise.
Love Hlemmur Square!
Just the cutestest hostel ever. Very trendy, clean and comfortable. Spacious rooms, clean bathrooms and showers. Guests were very respectful. Had no trouble sleeping in the evenings. Great bar and sitting area in the reception area to drink and meet other travelers. Food was delicious at the restaurant. Excellent location, located on the main road, central in downtown. Most tours pick up just outside their door steps, as well as local bus stops. Although, it's easy to walk everywhere from there. Absolutely, love it and hope to stay there again one day.
Decent price and location
Much dirtier in person Kitchen appliances don't work (stoves, ovens, microwaves) so use and need of kitchen is pointless People staying there do not clean their dishes, and cleaning crew doesn't do them either, so there's always a sink full of dirty dishes and no utensils. Advertises soap and shampoo provided yet they give 1 tiny bottle of shampoo that people end up stealing so no soap or shampoo Same with the soap in the bathrooms. No soap. Checked out a day early (almost 30 hours early) yet told that no refund would be given because not given 24 hours notice (?)
