5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A welcoming environment & stylish ambience
CITAN is by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in!! When we arrived, they greeted us by name before we even introduced ourselves. It felt so wonderful to be welcomed by a team of employees who really cared about their hostel. The hostel was clean (especially important since we visited at the beginning of the COVID-19 scare), well managed, and stylish. The lounge downstairs is awesome, especially when you need a night off from the hustle & bustle. Their cafe is fantastic for breakfast. Their breakfast sandwich was my favorite, and their lattes are delicious. The soaps in the showers/bathroom are locally & ethically sourced, which was a nice touch. One night, a staff member asked us what our plans were for the evening, and the next day, they followed up and asked if we had fun. The employees at CITAN truly go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable, welcomed, and appreciated.

Bar, cafe and nightly DJs were cool. What was less cool was the door that was between my room and another room which transmitted sound as if they were sitting right next to me.
