    Great location and easy check in and out. Lots of road noise and thin walls makes getting to sleep hard though. Needs a bit of a spruce up and a deep clean.

    Staff were really poor and rude, black mould in the showers etc. great location but the overall personal service was probably the worst I’ve seen from backpacking 40+ countries.

    Clean bedroom with a good view of the city. The location is perfect and value for money is excellent. There was a very unpleasant odor during my stay (2xnights) in corridor and room once you leave elevator. I think that is because the floor plan is in an old office building with possible an faulty air filtration system. Owners should definitely install a fan in the bathroom to improve ventilation. Security exit button upon entrance lost touch sensitivity and needs fixing.

    Arrogant racist staff twisting rules, depending on where guests are from. Unhappy cleaners. Dirty bathrooms. Dodgy lads on d***s linger, making everywhere smell of g***a. Groceries get stolen often. Even from the fridge. Not all cctv cameras work, so, it isn't possible to trace thefts. Lastly, they forced you to book directly and not thru Hostelworld or check out with all the heavy luggage, and re check in at 2 after several hours, although I had already been staying there long term!
