    Lovely place. Only downside is the location on friday and saturday nights, as it is on top of a nightclub. So expect some noise.

    Everything was good except the bed situation was uncomfortable. Two foam mattresses on top of a metal frame. Was hard to get to sleep.

    I booked a male dorm but was in a mixed dorm. The beds need replacing and floors are noisy, but then it is really cheap.

    Nice hostel, does the job. Room didn’t have a lock and facilities need an upgrade (toilet). Music on Friday and Saturday night is not that disturbing, the lack of a proper mattress is ...
