A nice place to stay when you're out of options or want to experience student or random travelers company! Thumbs up for the hospitality that this hostel gave me :) Very friendly and cool staff as well!

The Good: location very close to the metro(which you will be needing because you do not want to spend to much time in this hostel) manager lady was kind.The Bad: No air conditioning, rooms are musty, house is old, bugs, bathrooms are nasty. The overall atmosphere with the other roommates were poor because everyone was in disbelief of the rugged place they were staying in. Even my traveling companion was starting to get depressed. Please please, it may have a good price, but STAY AWAY!


Everything was clean, it was just worn or dated. Make sure you know that this place is CASH ONLY.
