The 10 bed dorms were better than the double room (looked more like a prison cell). Just one tiny sink for the entire floor. But for $15 a night it's absolutely fine. Go for the dorm

Great location, very central. However $35 a night for a single private room I would not have expected a prison like resembling room.

There is no proper wall between the room and the corridor, just some wooden blinds which cannot block out the noise from outside. Quite often there would be some inconsiderate fellows kept chatting and yelling in the corridor waking you up at 4 in the morning. The kitchen is unacceptably small and dirty. Staircase is very narrow, making the transfer of luggage difficult. Laundry room is closed at night. Hand washed clothes has nowhere to hang dry.

Didn't feel overly safe... The room was a mess very hot and stuffy. There was a balcony however it was covered in trash! Staff were lovely however the rest of the experience was hell! Bathrooms were gross with no sink to wash hands! Very cheap however wouldn't do it again!
