This hostel is the worst hostel that I have ever stayed so far in my life. It's a kind of hotel, but they transformed the basement like a kind of creepy hostel. The room was awful: some people were in it for at least 2 months and the smell was horrible. The bathroom was way too small and we used another bathroom much more cleaner on the same floor. They were doing some renovations at the same time and it was no clean at all. The kitchen was correct, enough fridges and space for a lot of people.
