    Yes it is cheaper then most of the other hostels, BUT No soap at the toilet, no toiletpaper, gigantic spiderweb in the dorm, really small kitchen, oven was broken, no room in the fridge, 5-7 dollars for small beers at the bar downstairs (think there was 350 ml, so really expensive), the "Free Wifi" didn't worked and the staff didn't cared when I asked them about it - me and a girl from the hostel joked and laughed about how everything was out of function! Not worth 27 dollars at night.
