The girs' showers had such little water that couldn't be, I was so cold while in there. If you're short they might not even work properly or you as the spay hits the all pretty high up.
The place kind of felt like it was falling apart. The shower head had no consistent flow and the ceiling in the men's shower was falling down. The beds were not the most comfortable as the mattresses were well worn. Staff was friendly and welcoming.
Nice,comfortable dorms however their security is a little lacking. Several of my room mates were doing drugs in the room all night and even invited people from the hostel next door into the room. Staff were sympathetic and offered to move me to another, quieter room the next day. Just an unfortunate experience
If you like warm showers then DO NOT stay here!!
The room itself was okay:basic. The lockers were basic and out in an open balcony area? girls showers could not be considered showers you physically couldn't wash yourself the water didn't touch you and was weak, I was then told to use the boys showers which were better but ice cold every time. Flys all over the common area and Everytime a fridge was open a rotting smell filled the room. The sofas were leather but had no leather left on them. Majority of people were long termers as well.
Staff is not bad but the place is just too old, showers for girl are apparently discusting and dont work good so they almost all come in the guys showers which are dirty too, big hole on the ceiling. Kitchen is dirty too... Not a good place to stay but its also very cheap.
Stayed for one night only in 8 bed dorm, lots of space, didn't feel like you were crammed. Not a bad hostel, bathrooms were kept pretty clean and same with kitchen.
The hostel/staff were great and very friendly. The beds were comfy and room was nice to have air con. However there was a huge dead cockroach under the bed even after the cleaner had been in. The showers were quite disappointing, also the men's shower had a hole in the ceiling. Would probably stay again for that great price!
