    The hostel was honestly alright. However if you are expecting anything clean go to any other hostel. But only because we knew from the reviews it wasn’t going to be clean, so our standards were pretty low. That being said it was dirty but really only because everything just needed to be vacuumed or wiped down. At some point after 1am someone pulled the fire alarm so we were evacuated which wasn’t ideal but hey it happens. Honestly for the 11 dollars we payed it was exactly what we expected.

    Kitchen provides only pans to cook, no dish no cutleries. Room very old, carpet very old and dusty, dirty, fan also very rusty and old. Cabinets left with stuff inside, not cleaned, beddings didnt really inspire freshness and cleanness... stairs very narrow, overall the building is old but with a few adjustments could be much better. Stayed for 2 nights at 15$per night, after i learned it was a discount for first booking only so if i intended to stay longer i could pay 22.. which wasnt worth.

    The place is absolutely filthy. Checked into the first room, stunk of cigarettes was asked to move and that wasn't much better. Toilet paper in the hallway smells of urine, the bin was full when I checked into my room, filthy and smelly pillowcases and blankets. I have been to many hostels and this was by far the most filthy I have been. I booked for two nights and checked out early because I could not handle the smell
