    I have seen much better. They are at a great location. They also have a comedian on Sundays. However, the kitchen is in shambles. Paint is pealing of of everything in the hostel. It looks like the owners do no reinvest any money in the place. If they had a tv room, and ceiling fans that would help.

    Hostel was ok, for it’s location, but there is not much else. Bathrooms and toilets were filthy, and cleanliness overall was very bad. There was no kitchen or refrigator, only common room. Staff was fine, when we first got there, our room only had one bed available, we had booked two beds, but we got another room without any extra costs.

    Staff was not on the desk for many times. They also ran out of towels and told me to come back next morning. Next morning I came back and still had no towels - no shower that day. The door got locked and couldn't open even after getting a card key reissued - my roomates and I had to leave the door propped that night. Their shower doesn't have any soap or shampoo. The faucet on the wash basin had really short timer so it was hard to use.

    Really disappointed honestly, booked one co-ed bed for myself (male) and two female beds (for my two female friends) through the website and I think it’s okay, I arrive and the front desk woman says after I have paid that they have only three female forms and that’s I booked that, show her the confirmation and she shrugs and doesn’t provide any assistance, rather Facetimes someone. Staff pay more attention to their phones, poor facilities, unkept and dangerous bathrooms. Do not stay here!

    This experience was awful. I understand that in a hostel type environment there are no luxuries and it’s just basically a bed to sleep in but the place was positively FILTHY. There were hairs in the bed, snot on the walls, nothing was cleaned ever including the communal bathrooms and showers. We actually had to go to a store to buy new bedding to use during our stay because there’s was so awful. The staff were incredibly rude and never around. My stay was deplorable. Never again..
