My main problem with this place is that it's not air conditioned and you can't open a window (it's glued shut), despite the fact that there's a fire escape right outside. Add in the mold which becomes unbearable in the heat, the fact that the sheets and towels they provided were wet, stained, and eventually seeing my GF wake up with bed bug bites--and the place makes for a somewhat dismal stay. The locks are old turnkey style, there's one hairdryer for the building, the beds are small。

Nope - sorry, never again!!! Staff was not so nice. Atmosphere was not the best. Neighbourhood is scary... I met some nice people there otherwise it would be just worse!!! Dont stay there.


the hostel's rule is so bad. you can't leave you luggage after 5 pm. And also you can't stay in hostel after 3 pm. That's inconvenience while you just want to wait for the late night bus to leave.


social place, (super) nice roommates, good place to stay if you want something cheap and nice people. overall: very nice hostel expierence.


The place needs a massive update in everything! The rooms smelled, bathroom dirty, kitchen was tiny and not well equipped and staff weren't very helpful


While one member of staff here was helpful he was not alway around and the other was extremely unhelpful. Sheets for beds were ill-fitting and we were not told that towels were available until our third night when we heard from another traveller. There is a serious lack of toilets in this place, get up before 7am t shower and after 10pm at night. 2 bathrooms to a floor, repeatedly blocked and not working. Hotel location past top of Market street dodgy where u hav t walk thro dodgy area.


It's nice, not amazing. Shared bathrooms and showers and above a club so there's loud music at night.

Quite far from the nearest metro station. Insufficient space for bike storage (staff used up 2 bicycle slots). There is only 1 toilet for each floor of about 20 people. There are 4 floors so 4 toilets, but it is often hard to get to use the toilet. Staff are friendly. Staff did not enforce night-time (after 12am) silence regulations in the first floor living room.

Owner Comment (Hide)
The nearest metro station is 2 minutes walk. Staff do not have bicycles.People check-in at night and walk on the first floor but we try to keep it quiet as much as possible. Thank you.


It's not bad. The only thing is that some of the rooms smell. But I still had a great time and it gives you what you need.

Stayed 1 night while in transit. Was OK for that purpose but the place was pretty run down and on a dirty alley just off union square. No atmosphere but fine for A night.
