If you've got no choice here, it's probably an acceptable one. the room is a mess and the kitchen is another. People are good to share here and the WiFi is the last good thing here.


Very comfy beds and a nice place to stay


Felt like a really big hostel. Unfortunately kitchen and common room wasn't big enough though. Had no were to sit in the evening when we wanting to chill and it was raining outside. Otherwise, an okay place.


Nice hostel. Nice staff. Rooms need a little bit more air, smells concentrated inside rooms.


This is probably one of the dirtier YHA's I have stayed in, staff seemed disinterested in cleaning it up but were otherwise helpful. Keeping kitchens and bathrooms clean would make a huge difference. Location was great, beds comfortable and bedrooms clean.


Huge hostel with over 100 rooms! We stayed in a 10-bed dorm and it was really spacious. Every bed has power sockets and hooks on the wall. The toilets and kitchen are really clean too. The gas stove didn't work really well but thankfully there are electric stoves. Parking was readily available in front of the building but maybe we arrived at a non-peak period....
