run down accomodation that is the same price as other more up-market hotels / hostels. No atmosphere at all. Bathrooms / showers were mouldy and the whole place smelled funky. Not clean rooms / linen with visible piles of dust and when we moved the beds, we found old KFC wrappers etc under there. Better value can be found elsewhere


The room was not very clean - hoover under the beds hadn't been done, and some customers peeed around the toilets instead of inside it... The small terrace was nice to have the meals, and the internet access in the main room to check emails.

They could have cleaner the rooms better and there were only two toilets on the floor I stayed at. You have to pay 5 dollars per day for wifi. Come on! It's the 21st century! But the poeple who stayed there were nice and the since it's a small hostel the atmosphere is good.


Clean safe quite cheap definitely stay again stayed mid week for work

The staff were very helpful. The hostel certainly accommodates those who are on a budget. Thank you.

Room was horrible, some type of unit outside the window which made noise all night! Room was dirty? Bedsheets ripped, blanket horrible, dirty, old. Shower was broken, dirty and door was broken


This hostel is in a great location for shopping, restaurants, bars etc. it is a quiet hostel if that's what u are looking for. Breakfast is included too which is always nice. The one bad thing id say is that at night u can hear the busy city outside from inside the hostel rooms . Otherwise a pleasant stay


This "place" is simply shameful, a nightmare.It's dirty, creepy and unsafe. I was in a double room, it was so creepy,like a cell, just 2 bed arranged with dirty bed sheets, dust everywhere including the blanket we were supposed to use as the room was very cold and no heating system was provided. The walls were decrepit, the wall sockets were really unsafe, the room was just horrible. Wifi (5$) didn't work in the room but the woman at the reception (very rude and unwelcoming)didn't mention it.
