Latest Review

" I think this place used to be run by someone else but now it seems like a cheap place for some locals. Rooms are without window, 2 Showers/toilet combos for 12 people whereas 6 are all female dorm and 6 mixed. Reception is only available on prebooked hours. Wifi wasnt really working until staff came back. During my stay, if I calculate right, 20% of the guests had problems while staff wasnt available (only by call). Better Find sth else !!! "
