Stayed only for a night. We could hear the bar next door in the rooms. Reviewing based on one night is not fair.


The staff made me feel welcome and almost home during my stay. The only point to improved is the wáter supply for the second floo

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, but that was about the only nice thing. The bar next door was loud and we could smell the cigarette smoke through the windows. The girls' bathroom was kind of gross - hair all over the shower. We were pretty disappointed with breakfast. By the time we got there there was no fruit left, and the pancake batter was too thin to make a decent pancake. I didn't want to have cereal with milk because I didn't know how long the milk had been out.

The hostel had all male workers. Because of this, it was more like a bachelor pad. Not everything was as clean as it should of been. There were no utensils to cook w/

The hostel was terrible! It's cheap, but they didn't even tell me if there was a shower or not. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay and don't care about anything, this might be it. They did have 24 desk hours and above average security, but I will NEVER stay there again.


The place was in a great location and had a great staff. Unfortunately these are my only positives. It was not very clean in my room or either bathrooms. One bathroom was in and out of service, I saw poop and blood in there and was leaking dingy water into the kitchen. The morning pancakes were ok but kind of a flop. The bar next door seemed cool, but really loud all night and a lot of cigarette smoke. My private room was convenient for locking stuff, but not worth the $25, wouldn't stay again.
