The good: guys who work there are nice! The bad: Easily the filthiest hostel I have ever set foot in. Smells like a wet golden retriever. Food ground into the carpet in the kitchen. Cleaning schedule on the wall says they tidy the bedrooms just once a week. Fire alarm battery was dying and it beeped all night long. Only one shower and one toilet for the whole first and second floors. Pillow they gave me was covered in someone else's hair. Location sucks. Book anywhere else.

The place didn't smell fresh- the rooms were very small and not like the photographs. Bathrooms poor quality. Place didn't feel very safe- not geared well towards travellers. Would not recommend.
