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.


I stayed at this hostel for one night. It was easy to find and was close enough to the civic center where the train is and close to buses that run along the main road. I cant comment on the kitchen facilities as I didn't use them. The room was a little small, but i was able to slide my bag under the bunk bed. There were two shower/toilet and one toilet facility on the floor that were clean enough, but a pain if you are in need of the loo and someone is in there.


On hostel world it states that the hostel is newly renovated - I find this hard to believe. The bathrooms are water damaged and many doors are rotting at the base. The bathrooms were pretty gross. The location was great - but i would not stay here again. It was poor value for money.


The room lacked proper ventilation. The Shower had old rusted rod holding it up. Overall cleanliness could have been better. The stake was mild mannered and "tired" perhaps. Their attitude towards guests could improve in the courtesy area.

The worst part about the hostel is that the only common area is closed at midnight, and the area is too dangerous to go around late at night, you end up with an enforced curfew. Definitely not like real European hostels.

The atmosphere is nice though of poor surroundings.Some homeless are nearby just ignore them.Location is good for adjacent to downtown.All in a word,deserve the money u pay.


It's a very typical hostel experience--the rooms were clean and the bathrooms were clean, but there's a lot of bodies existing in and around those spaces so it gets smelly easily. The lockers were small but right outside the room and there were cameras in the hallways so I felt good about what I left in them. The atmosphere overall was super relaxed. All the guests were kind and talkative and my friends and I had fun getting to know them.
