For $7 a night you can't really go wrong. The staff were super friendly, the rooms are pretty good, and the usable kitchen is a huge treat (especially with the grocery store next door). The washrooms and showers are a bit cramped however, and it's a little bit outside the main stretch (about a 20 minute walk). Overall, I'm quite pleased.
Could not fit it all in 500 words. The images on hostel world paint a VERY different picture of this place. The main pictures are of the apartment upstairs whichnis not even avaliable on hostelworld.... The place has no locks for rooms, or storage and the entire building is built so poorly you cannot open the door to any room without it hitting the floor, whilst halfway ajar, creating the most agonising noise. Lights are on all night and cannot turn off...yes the rooms do not get dark.
