You get what you pay. The 12 people dorm was the cheapest I found in the city and good located. But the dorm even don't have a fan, so prepare to suffer the whole night. The thing that bother me is the ad says every bed has a fan, you have curtains for privacy and l didn't see nothing of it. No plug in every bed neither and no personal light. Even they don't clean the bed when someone left. I don't recommend this hostel, pay 2 dollar more in other place. The photos you see are from another place
there was no a/c and no fan ( was so hot! ) and they don't make breakfast, when they say that they have a/c and breakfast... it's cheap but it is not the reason to dont be clean... and one bathroom for 18!!
Paid for a six bed dorm and ended up in a dorm with six beds PLUS a thin glass wall with another nine bed dorm room which was not only using our bathroom but also had to go through our room to even enter their dorm. Additionally, the bunk beds where horrible, because they were three story bunk beds and very unstable...
Rooms are super small. 4 bunk beds next to each other. No space for bags. Only one toilet per 18 people.
We had a really good stay at this hostel. However it could have done with a larger, more comfortable social area. The seating area is tiny stools or cushions on the floor, would have been nice to have some real chairs to sit on as we often ended up chilling in this area. Very good value for money and located right next to the park which was perfect. wasn't too loud at night as your not too close to the bars. Would stay here again
Clean beds, nice helpful staff, great location. - No good "lounge" kind of place to meet new people, just the reception. - very limited number of toilets. (2).
It was horrible. You Have one small toilette for 20 people with no hot water at all, Obviously it wasnt clean. The staff is not help full and even you didnt understand them, breakfast really bad, I advice you to go Another place.

If all you care about is a cheap bed, this is definitely the place to stay! However there are definitely around 21 beds in the room, not 12. Pros - cheap, relatively good location, basic breakfast. Cons - dirty bathroom (and only one on each floor), staff barely speaks English, no secure places really to store backpacks, and the "common area" isn't soundproof so the whole hostel echoes with chatter. Wouldn't stay again but it did the trick for a few nights!
Cheap for dorm bed. 12 person dorm beds
