  • 4.0.Fair

    BAD for a holiday great for imigrants, retirees

    More of a gross no security half way house then a nice safe social hostel. No social vibe here at all because Most people are long term stayng immigrants and poor creepy retired old men who get very agressive and rude with you becsuse they are so burnt out with months of the crowded atomsphere here. Which is why they need a two week limit here. Cause For the 150 guest they get per night many faclities are broken, no working wifi and very poorly managed and secured and the long term people are burnt out with it. Lots of food gets stolen over night by homeles people who also come in sleeping on the bean bags and pick through kitchen. The staff Dogs are peeing everywhere. Staff are unwilling to deal with all the chaos or accomodate you when u r feeling unsafe with the long term creeps. So all in all not meant for tourist if you are looking for a clean, safe, social and well upkept environment. I had guest and staff get aggressive with me over using a microwave nd common area to talk on phone and so forth.

  • 6.0.Good

    As a very experienced hostel stayer, my overall opinion of inhawi hostel was very poor for cleanniess, especially in the kitchen area an the fridge area, they was wet floors from leaks which made making a meal a traumatic experience for myself and other guests. Breakfast which was included in the price was in the building outside, was very very poor with the same items every morning during my two weeks there, may i add only 1double toaster for all guests also..

  • 8.0.Very good

    Decent budget option

    Clean, friendly staff, comfortable, decent location. Only negative was that they couldn't provide me with some sort of packed breakfast when I had an early flight.

    This hostel is very, very clean and rooms are modern and minimalistic. I slept very well here which meant I was fresh for exploring the next day. There is good under-bunk storage (provide your own padlock) and a swipe card entry system. The staff are kind, friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome. In the 12 bed girls dorm there is only 1 toilet but I know the other dorms have more, even the ones with less beds. I’d have liked a few more breakfast options and maybe a small shop to be able to purchase large bottles of water (only small ones in the vending machine) and a plastic recycling bin for water bottles (as drinking tap water is not advisable so you can go through a lot) none of the above are points for criticism, just suggestions and I absolutely would recommend this hostel to anyone and 100% stay here again!
