Location provided on Hostel World is incorrect. Make sure to use Google to check it's true location, which is quite a hike from the centre. The hostel was a bit dirty. Rubbish was left in the room for days, bathrooms were very dusty and moldy and there were pubes on my bed when I arrived. Biggest problem is noise. There is no such thing as quiet times and staff allowed (and participated with) other guests playing really loud music and shouting all night right up to 05:00 when I checked out.


Little expensive, but everything else was great!

If this hostel were a pizza it would definitively be of the "happy" variety. People from all corners of the world have gathered here to bake in the morning, drink in the afternoon, talk clichéd existential nonsense and listen to that one infected mushroom song. You'd hope for a people so open minded they might go outside and see something of the world now that they've flown 9k miles round it. Positives: location, free parking, washed linens, location and ample internet. Cons: drum circles.
