    This hostel is really durty, you can find cigarettes in the corridor... The bathroom and the kitchen (very small) too. The personal is not really helpful: I ask them because I found an appartment before the end of my reservation but they didn't want to refund me, because money is the most important for them... The roof is durty too. Any trust between the personal and you: you need to deposit your key if you want to borrow a pan or something to cook...
