The hostels website says it is close to the centre of town, which normall when someone says a "close walk" they mean 5-15 minutes or so. The hostel was a 50 minute walk into town... I have no problem walking, but when you have to walk 50 minutes just to get into town when you are lead to believe it "close" was a bit misleading. Also the beds for the hostel part of the place are awful! There was hair on our sheets! Ew! The staff was nice though!
The WIFI sucks! It was very unsteady and we have to go to the 1st floor to connect since the routers in other floors did not work. And sometimes the WIFI in the entire building did not work! Also, the kitchen is dirty and there were not enough tools for cooking. The 3-bed private room is quite comfortable, though the staff are not very friendly.
Very disappointed to find after paying for a "private room with double bed", what we ended up with was two single beds pushed together. This is NOT a double bed, and is completely false advertising to pass off as such and charge us more for a double room. Additionally, the wifi continually cut out every hour or so and on our first night the desk staff was quite unhelpful in directing us to somewhere to find food.
cons ; stayed in 4 bed room, it was like a jail but not bad. my room was under the ground, so smell was bad. pros ; the receptionist was very kind and funny. breakfast was good. room and toilet were clean. in total, almost everything was okay.
