The security is very poor. A case of of lost wallet and clothes during my 2 weeks stay. The bathroom and toilet door is almost has no use because they have a big gap in befween the door and the wall. The toilet is located just beside the big window where there are a lot off tall buildings outside. Anyone can see you from outside. Cheapest in cbd, too expensive for fhe value for money. Toilet n bathroom in 2nd floor is under renovation and get very noisy starting around 9am.


This was by far the saddest place I have every stayed. No window, or ventilation in the room and corridors. The sheets and blankets were so old that they were almost seethrough and gave me a rash. Cleanliness is a word that does not come up in this hostels' dictornary. Weird atmosferel - lots of bums, drunk teenagers and socially awkward people. They also sell the couch in the common area... which make it even stranger, coming into reception in the morning and finding 8 people out camping.


No windows in my room, so it was very hot at nights for 58 dollars I expected something a little nicer. And the room wasn't as clean as I expected either
