My stay from 26-31 May was really great (met some cool people and had some good rest) until the night of 30th, which is a friday night. The place turned into hell. Due to the weekend, people got drunk in the bar upstairs and gone crazy in the hostel. They were shouting and making so much noise which woke me up from my sleep several times (some were the hostel's staff). I was even cursed at when I asked them to slow down. My advice? Avoid staying over the weekends.

The fire escape is permanently locked with a security gate and there are only a few signs indicating the way there. I believe that in a emergency situation this can become a major problem.
