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.

The staff was nice but wasn't competent at all. You had to ask more than one time to get bed sheets, and first of all these one were damaged. Furthermore there wasn't breakfast the first day and of three suitable showers only one worked. The whole Hostel was really dirty. A lot of problems and a too small and dirty kitchen. I would not recommend this Hostel
