    We stayed for one night before a cruise. The room had an ensuite shower/toilet that was extremely cramped but still appreciated. The beds were very comfortable. The night clerk was very helpful with food recommendations and even helped with our luggage. We walked about 15 minutes from metro to hostel and also from the hostel to the cruise port. It was a bit noisier in the halls and on the street than last time, but we managed to get some rest. Great value for us.

    Whole place needs a refurb. Outdated facilities and staff were pretty sassy on arrival. Did the job but I doubt I’ll return.

    It wasn't clean and the bar made it VERY loud. Even with ear plugs the music was so loud my head would shake while laying in bed. The bathrooms are facing the showers and are less then a feet between eachother. So people are less than a feet from you using the restroom while you shower, and they're dirty. I recommend another hostel.
