You have to go into an underpopulated street and up three flights of a sketchy and dirty stairway. It's dimly lit and had no ambiance, your belonging lockers are out in the public open. The staff weirdly took a photocopy of my passport. I didn't see my room until I paid, and when I wanted a refund, not for the night of, but the rest of my stay (same if I had no-showed) but the staff refused to refund me, even though it's common practice. I still left without my money because it was that bad.
I thought it was a great hostel! The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating, except for one, whom consistently was rude and rolled her eyes at my bad french and lack of french comprehension. Everything was great except for twice when the cleaning lady forgot to lock my room.
