The rooms are not clean at all. They only pass the vacuum once a day but the carpet is really dirty. The kitchen has not enough cups or plates for eating/breakfast so you always have to wait. The Free Wifi is not of them, is the provided by the city council.

Odd to have a bar in a hostel so anyone could walk in and out and make as much noise while patrons are trying to sleep. Toilets not been cleaned for awhile. TV in common room not working.

The location of the hostel could not be more accurate and perfect but that's it. The rooms were filthy and the shared bathrooms very very dirty. The kitchen and the "included breakfast" deficient and the personal attending the installation were not willing to help at any time.

Loved staying at this hostel! The facilities are pretty good and the atmosphere was great. They have a bar at the hostel with a lot of affordable options so you don't have to stray too far for a drink.
