When you look from the street it looks like a beautiful hostel/restaurant, but no. They are all about the restaurant, but the hostel is really disorganized and in bad conditions. No padlock lockers, you have to ask for a key. No keys to everybody. When I finally got a locker key to myself, the same key opens all lockers. The kitchen is terribly equipped. It claims to be a party hostel, but not. Don't stay here, not even if you like party hostels.
Locker for valuables in rooms were in extremely bad condition
The hostel is a bit tired. The biggest disappointment is the way it's run. The staff apart from one haven't got much common sense. It is impossible to sleep here, especially in the main building due to ignorant staff playing music on reception all night loud. Also, the social area is outside the room which is annoyingly loud. They should ask people not to use it after a certain time to be considerate to those sleeping. Myself and many others were annoyed.filthy pool and 1 plug hole in room.
