Awful! Rooms-toilets-showers all dirty. They don't offer the facilities they claim. Staff are unkind. When we arrived we wanted to change our room and they said they could not include the deposit we had paid before. Moreover we needed to live one day earlier and they didn't return the money we paid. The owner didn't even talk and explain the situation. It wasn't pleasant. I'm sure you can find a better place. Don't go...

Disaster. Rooms and showers are extremely dirty. There aren't safe boxes. Staff is very unkind. I wanted to early but they give back . listen .Even if they offered me money, I wouldn't go back there.


Stayed for 4 nights, private double ensuite room. The room was adequate, but had many problems that could have been easily fixed by the staff. The hostel listed many things that were no longer available, such as a terrace cafe (no longer in use, filthy). The staff could simply take the paper signs off the wall. Staff was very lazy and not too concerned with the tenants, except for the oldest gentleman (very nice and helpful). Could be much improved with minor effort. Location is fantastic.


Has an amazing location, near of the center and the mosques. The cleanning is not wow but its ok. The receptionist is really nice and helpful, the rooms are not so confortable. If you are in a cheap trip this is your hostel.
