booked accomodation online. photographs are VERY deceiving. walked in, WALKED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!. you couldn't pay me to stay there! the entrance for the hostel is off a crummy garage, you walk up a dingy looking, poorly lit stairwell and you walk into a smokey, damp smelling room. its awful. mould on the roof and you get this sickening feeling that someone might break into your room at night while you sleeping. DO NOT BOOK INTO THIS HOSTEL. price and location and false advertising for sure!

The man at the reception was very nice and helpful. Nice view from the terrace. However, the hostel didn't look very clean and the rooms were smelling to cigarrete. At night, the staff of the hostel and friends of them, together with some guests had a party at the common area, which is right next to the rooms. We couldn't sleep at all since they only stopped around 3 in the morning when we complained.
