DO NOT STAY HERE! It took me 2 days to check in because nobody actually works here. A drunk rowdy group of people woke everybody up at 4am and there was nobody to handle it. The room was disgusting and filthy it made me uncomfortable staying here. The blanket and pillows they supply for you can hardly pass as real beding and I woke up sore everyday. You might as well sleep on a park bench. Not even worth the $14 or so a night, by far worst hostel I've stayed in.
Dorms were a little toooo cramped, especially when A 13th bed was squeezed on night 2.
Comparably cheap, but no kitchen, rudimentary showers, small rooms without any decoration and dirty linen and towel (for an extra fee). If you have more money to spend i would recommend skipping this hostel even though it is quite central. Good paying process (all before arrival)
this hostel is one of the worst i've been to and i've been to a few. the owners don't seem to care about their guests having a good stay. it wasn't clean at all: dust everywhere, i think the carpet hasn't seen a vacuum cleaner for a few months and the shower smelled like it's been used as a toilet. staff often forgets to send out the doorcodes so if you're a late arrival there is no other way than to call security. wouldn't recommend that place.
unwelcoming, one sheet was missing but we were charged for it, in the morning the staff was running in and out of our room and annoyed us before the checkout time. but: good location and kind of cheap
Great place for the price. Very bare bones and my room with 3 bunk beds is super small when all the beds are filled. BUT that being said, the location is excellent and if you just need a place to shower and sleep this is it! **One Negative: The internet is slower then molasses and doesn't even work most of the time. Bust who needs internet when they are sleeping... :)

The hostel was clearly no 'youth' hostel. It was full of old men who stayed watching TV all day, having no reception on the weekends made it feel extremely uncomfortable, especially for a female traveller. The kitchen had a microwave and fridge, and a hot plate was only available when reception was around. Although the workers came and cleaned for a fair bit of time and were VERY friendly, they weren't around to be helpful.
1) They double booked a bed in my room, so there was an argument at 3am over who got which bed. Security was eventually called at 4am. If they had kept a staff member around, this problem never would have occurred. 2) Yes, hostels are supposed to be rather small, but once all six people were in the room, there wasn't even room to open the door & no one had any space for luggage. The lockers were tiny & couldn't fit luggage. 3) It looked clean, but everyone was sneezing because there was mold.
The only advantage of this hostel was the location. It's within walking distance from the city centre in quite a nice neighbourhood. Unfortunately the rooms, toilets, kitchen etc were extremely tiny! In the room there was not enough place even to put a luggage. The lockers were very small, staff was invisible, literally most of the time there was no one from the staff. This also wasn't the cleanest place.

You have to change the working hour. For example you can service the guest during 24h by hiring new staff.
We got two different emails with two different room no, there was no keys, only code on the doors (that people apparently had or the lock didn't work, or they also got two codes via email, because at least two people walked in that didn't belong to that room). There was very few toilets for the floor and the entire facility was tiny. We only stayed one night, thankfully. It's okay for the money spent, but wouldn't visit again.
