I had never stayed in a hostel and was fairly nervous about staying at the Hipstel, however it was awesome. I can’t really speak to how it compares to other hostels, but I was very impressed with the staff and facilities. It was very clean and always smelled like fresh flowers. The staff was always helpful and suggested things for us to do on the stay. It is also in a central location and you are in walking distance to lots of dining and shops. The stay overall was awesome. You cannot beat the price.
