Good hostel and met some really great people here! It's not the cleanest place due to long stayers but as they were all so nice it wasn't a problem! The only real negative was the lack of security, lockers are in the room but they are completely unusable, even the hostel manager said there were no keys. The doors were left open a lot and random people did stroll in on one night!

Was nice, but really dirty and noisy (until 4am in the morning!!!!) Wouldn´t go there again!
I stayed three nights here, and was kept awake every night, once past 4am by noisy people in the garden. My dorm room door was always open and whenever I locked it, it would jam. Reception gave me the wrong code for the door so I was locked out. Plastic mattress, felt like I was sleeping on a baby changing matt. Weird guests, always smoking weed in the garden next to my dorm room. Tiny tv area. Run down garden area. Dirty showers. My free wifi code stopped working on my last night. Avoid!
