    The room was not as advertised, the beds were very close together, the carpet had goon spilled and stained all over it. The day to day staff were very friendly and helpful but the manager didn't always follow their lead. The pictures definitely do no represent the reality in any way. We had to be moved to their other hostel as it was so bad but the other hostel didn't have wifi or laundry or reception so you had to keep going back to world square for all of this and check out.
