If you're looking for an extremely rude manager of a hostel, this hostel is perfect for you! The icing on the cake was when I checked out and the manager didn't even say 'thank you' or 'enjoy your trip'! It's also a good place to stay if you want to feel like you're back at school and unable to enjoy yourself. If you sneeze too loud the manager will be letting you know! However all other members of staff are lovely. Expensive prices. Nobody staying there due to season. Pretty poor overall. 3/10

Probably the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Cockroaches around the bed and flys all around the room. Worst thing about the place was the staff on the front desk - poor attitude and the most miserable people I've ever met.

Staff was rude and unhelpful. I found cockroaches in my bedroom and another resident whom I did not know snuck into my room at night without welcome.

The dorms are extremely small, the entire hostel is very dirty and spotted cockroaches in the kitchen. The staff is not very friendly nor helpful.
