The hostel itself is great. The atmosphere and the cells are really creepy, it's awesome. It's a very unusual experience. Unfortunately, most of the toilets were clogged up which kinda spoilt our stay, otherwise my review would have been way better.


Really spooky place to stay. Even have Guillotine (historical place) left near front door. Although excellent staff services.
