Not a huge fan of this hostel. The bathroom was falling apart (broken tiles, etc.) and the room I stayed in was pretty noisy (and dirty, although, this was more likely linked to other guests). Fair enough, the security lock at the entrance door is clearly a bonus, but I've got to admit that I'd prefer a 24-hour reception (especially when checking in early/late). The staff was nice, but pointed the bus stop in the wrong direction...


The kitchen wasn't very clean. The carpet in the whole hostel needs to be clean or change. And also fixed in some steps of the stair.
