Kitchen was very tiny, too small fit more than one person at a time. Matches ran out and some utensils were difficult to find. Security seemed very nice, however the staff seemed to let anyone , even after curfew. Quiet hours were not respected or enforced. The showers consistently swapped between too hot and too cold. The toilet paper was not refilled and the bathrooms were left dirty until way into the afternoon. At least the breakfast was better than average. Overall, would not recommend.

We accidently double booked this place but took the more expensive double room with private bathroom. The reception lady was good enough not to charge us twice but she originally offered us a discount if the shower wasn't working- (which it wasn't!) and then retracted her offer- that's not on. Breakfast was fairly deccent and bed was very comfy. Showers were awful- so tiny!


Kitchen is Way to tiny! Guests partied until 3 am, so it was impossible to find some sleep.

A few days before our check-in, we were told that a robbery had taken place within the Hostel. However, the security to access the building was more than sufficient. The men's bathroom was under renovation, so all the male guests had to use one bathroom with only one shower, the cleanliness of this particular bathroom was questionable. The staff wasn't very helpful. My mattress was so deformed I felt the wooden support of the bed on my back. Definitely a very bad experience after all!!


Room 2 hat no hot water and the doorkey didn't work properly, room 7 showerhead was damaged so you take a shower and flood the whole bathroom. Blinds in bedroom not strong enough, too much light.

Location was good. Wifi was weak and spotty. The room was fairly clean but very dark. The men's bathroom was out of order when we were there so everyone had to use the small women's bathroom. Security was good and there were lockers in our room.


The rules were not regulated at all while I was there. Maybe it had to do with the people staying there. There was lots of yelling and rowdiness of the other residents when it was past quiet hours and the kitchen was always left as a disaster by the other residents too. cleanliness was poor. Mold in the showers, never was hand soap in the bathrooms, never had a pillowcase. Some of the staff were friendly but didn't seem to regulate the hostel that well for the sake of the other guests.
