    The infrastructure of the hostel was alright -- hot showers, plugs in each bed. But the staff? Unfriendly and unwilling to help.

    I’ve stayed in many hostels before and this one was pretty bad. Was a dirty mess of a hostel. Nothing like the pictures portrayed.

    The hostel was very unsafe, no lockers in the rooms, people having sex in the bed above, police crashing in the middle of the night because some homeless woman doesn't want to pay, very dirty, no space in the luggage 'lockers' (without locks..), very dirty bathrooms. Booked for three nights, stayed only for one. Not staying there ever again even if they pay me. There are plenty of very nice hostels around in the same location.

    BED BUG INFESTATION: Fellow travelers: whatever you do, do NOT step foot in this atrocious, disgusting hostel. You will most likely leave with a few bugs on you (or your items), or just a physical / mental grime that you won’t be able to shake for a couple of days. NOT WORTH THE CHEAP PRICES, I promise you.
