    The dorm room was very nice, we had a bathroom right next to us. It was clean all the time, so were the dorm rooms. The hostel has a very nice reading room and a whole gaming area. The dining room is a bit small, but it was no big problem. They have a great kitchen, it is fully equipped and they have free tea. Overall i would really recommend the hostel altough it is tricky to find. But it has a nice athmosphere and we felt very safe.

    The rooms were really small . Had a musky smell and were not appealing . The staff was nice but place was way below expectations. I have lived in many hostels and travel regularly . however this one was disappointing. I ended up going there for a while but didn't end up staying at all .had a booking for 2days but had to find a new accommodation. Hope it helps other travellers .
