The hostel was further away from the main part of town than expected and it was located in a deserted part of town. We actually cut our stay short and moved to a different location.

My key got stuck in the door and was very difficult to get got. The window would not close properly, so it was cold and loud from the evening foot and vehicle traffic. The furniture was extremely old and falling apart (to include one of the beds). The Internet does not work in the rooms. I had to use the Internet in staircase or in the cafe area. Not very convenient. The food was good. The lady who ran the kitchen was very friendly.


Bought internet and then it was down so couldn't use it...


the worst place i've been.. sooooo dirty!!! And smelling horrible!!! And bad atmosphere!
