Kitchen was an absolute disaster, nobody cleaned the pots or anything. No way to lock the rooms, so we had people coming in and out to get into the roof from our window. The other person staying in are room wasn't guven sheets or a pillow or blanket at all, he slept on a bare mattress. Room only had two outlets for 4 people. For the price all of this is to be expected though.


The hostel hasn't a reception. The employee guy who attended us was very rude and he didn't want to make our check out till 10:00 pm because "it wasn't his business". It reminds like any drug factory in a bad movie. The entrance is a garage in a dark street where you'd never guess there is a backpacker there. The doors don't close and all the building is half build. The location is far away from the city so the money which you save renting a bed you are gonna spend on transport.

Worst hostel ever . No locks on the doors so anyone can go in your room . It said breakfast is included but all you get is stail bread . It's dirty . There's no one around to help you . No reception . It's a building site aswell . It should be closed down .
