Guys, I don't have words to explain how amazing was my days here at the HighRoad!
They are now my family!
The hostel is very clean, organized, the managers are awesome, all the staff, the neighborhood is INCREDIBLE, safe, crowded on the weekends if you want to hang out with your friends, and believe me, you will make a lot of friends, especially with the guests from the hostel! So, don't think twice to visit and stay with us. I said "us" because now, HighRoad is my family, and it will always be! I'm so grateful for everything, and for all... THANK YOU SO MUCH! I LOVE YOU ♥️

Working here has brought me lifelong friendships, a deeper understanding of hospitality and guest relations. I would recommend to anyone that wants to balance a hardworking mentality with a fun environment. Management is very adaptable and willing to listen to feedback. The culture and staff that HighRoad hostel fosters, is warm, dedicated and very welcoming! Thank you guys for a truly great experience with countless wonderful memories! Thank you Andy, Jess and Miyuki for giving me the chance to be part of this incredible team!
