This is one of your run of the mill hostels. It is generally clean and tidy. The facilities are more than adequate for a hostel of its size and the location is great.


Oh God dont go there!!! I wish I was warned! It was by far the worst Hostel (especially for that price) I have ever stayed at - and Ive been to Asia. Extremely dirty, moldy, smelly and all in all just disgusting! I slept with my sleepingbag on top of the nasty matress as everything was so filthy, I was afraid to catch a disease. The kitchen is just as dirty and I hope you dont mind eating your food with nothing but knives. No pots, pans or cuttlery (besides knives) its useless. DONT STAY THERE!!


I don't want to rant so instead: I don't have anything positive to say about this place except that it's in a good location.


Excellent location!! Internet was expensive, only 2 plugs for a room with six people isn't enough and my biggest fault with the place- no lockers in the room. The lockers that are available on the 1st floor require money EACH time they are used... Theymessed up my booking on arrival, as I was supposed to be in a 4 bed dorm but gave me money back and free wifi an put me in a 6 bed girls-only dorm. One particular staff member was quite unfriendly, bordering on rude, the other lovely!
