The building is quite old and there were no sheets on the bed.

Overall one of my least favourite hostels! There was almost no security, you can just buzz up into the hostel and they will let you in and the door to the room doesn't lock, while I was sleeping I overheard a staff member and client discussing if a man had followed them into the building. The hostel does give you a free small locker though. The reception is only from 9am-midnight and they staff is rarely at the desk during those hours. Only one bathroom with 2 showers and a toilet, no privacy.


Firstly, the owners of this hostel were very nice and very helpful. The location was great, right in the heart of old town. The one thing they do need is a common room for people to hang out. I know that they are in the middle of renovations so maybe it will come. My girlfriend and I paid for a private room and ended up having to stay in a whole other building. This wasn't too bad as we then got upgraded to our own apartment to make up for being so far away from the other facilities.


The owner (or deskworker) was super friendly. He was extremely knowledgable about nice area and can tell you exactly where to go. The kids that work at night were jerks and listened to their loud music all night while everyone was trying to sleep. It is in the best location. Right by the beach in old town. Close to everywhere you want to go.


I think it's just a place for sleeping. The bed is not very clean, and there are rats in the kitchen, what's more, the bathroom can't lock, and there is not hot water sometimes.

I've been traveling in many places around the world, but this is the worst hostel i've been stayed. You are sharing a room with 16 beds. Only one toillete, the door doesn't close at all, and sometimes no warm water on shower. Poor blankets, no towels, the breakfast sucks and and very poor security. There are only two plugs in the room for 16 people, it's a mess, if you could try another hostel, don't think about it.
