    Way too many beds in each room. The lockers are broken and cover the ladders of the bunk beds. It's absolutely freezing. Turn the heat on! Depressing atmosphere. Confusing that the showers are super nice but everything els is broken or dirty. Spread money around the whole hostel, not just the showers.
