Lovely staff, good location, the 18 bed dorm doesn't have air conditioning so prepare to sweat. Very nice social area, toilets and showers were well kept, there is only one toilet in the 18 bed dorm, but you can use ones located by the stairs. Very good price, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they do a free breakfast. If you are on a tight budget, this is the place to stay, it also has great Wifi.


It's located in a really nice neighborhood close to all. Convenience for the price.


Ththe was dirty and smelt. No linen provided , no sheet or blanket. A dirty stained matress cover..the wifi wasn't and tea and coffee making facilities do not exist as they have put a cafe in instead

Ok the first day someone have stolen the plug of my iPhone. But the computer just next to it didn't move. Guys we have what we paid for. 4$/night do not expect a lot of room with fantastic beds. I've been there twice. First time the room was almost full and of course one toilet only for 18 people but I repeat => 4$/night... Second time rooms was empty. Internet always worked. And except for few minutes power off the fans always worked as well

Please don't stay here just for saving money.


The dorm it's too hot. The fan doesnt work. There are 189 people in the same dorm, not 12 as they say.


The place is currently a building site. We were walking over power tools just to get to the room, which was meant to be 12 bed, but was more like a 24 bed, and with only one fan. We did not stay there!
