For the most part, anyway. Seeing as this hostel chain advertises itself as a party hostel, you can expect a younger crowd and people that are keen to have a lot of fun and stay up late.

There are also private rooms available at these hostels, offering a "deluxe" label and unique accommodation such as private teepees.

Still, whether you pick a shared dorm or a private room, we suggest only staying here if you want to party.
