Horrible hostel. The staff is very unfriendly and the bathrooms and bedrooms are dirty.

This "hostel" has no real rooms. There're plastic bungalows in a house. You don't get a key for your room. The cleaner just threw everything in the bin (bottles- even if there is still something in it)! Nobody speaks English, no kitchen facilities, the common area has no atmosphere, the showers are plastic boxes too. In the first floor is a gym, which is actually the main thing. The wifi worked most of the time.
Most staff speak NO English. Cleanliness is not great, and security barely exists.
Poor ventilation in the room and walking passage as units of air condition were hanging around the passage. Security was poor as the entrance was shared with a gym at the ground floor. Dirty bathroom. In addition, the email address was not correct on the hostelworld webpage.
This hostel was not seeming like a hostel at all. The staff was operating the gym, and did not give any kind of hostel-related information ( the typical things like guidance about what's nearby etc...). The public area / bar of the hostel was dirtty and empty of staff and also empty of guests, I did not notice it being open anytime. The light didn't work at my room, which had windows either, and the whole space was smelling like the gym downstairs. I just had to get out of there after 1 night!
