    Everything was perfect but cleanliness . Very helpful receptionist . Joyful common room , with a big screen to watch football , a pool and plenty of places to stay with your laptop. The place is very secure and the storage room well guarded, nice kitchens and a restaurant providing hot meals. Sometimes windows are not opening, bathroom not functioning, dense smog from outside is filling the room, and you better check your bed: pillow missing case and duvet covered in grease are not nice find

    I’ve stayed in this hostel for four nights because it’s cheap and close to the underground. The staff is really friendly and they are keen to helping you with any request. However it has more downsizes than pluses and I don’t recommend coming to this hostel because: - it’s quite dirty - the shower cabin is IN the room where you sleep - no lockers in the rooms to keep your stuff safe - it’s just in front of a cementery, which is not sanitary - the hallways are quite dark

    My bed still had the previous guest's sheets all piled up on it! I asked for another room but they said it was all busy. Girl at the reception did not have the laundry keys so they used a staff's sheet to make my bed but with same pillow case and blanket sheet (disgusting) I would have left but it was too late! This is the second time my bed is taken but at least the 1st time I got another bed! Unfortunately, sometimes I need a last min booking and this was available!

    I was expecting at least an organized place, but the staff is messy and made us wait for 30 minutes before getting attended. Roomies were weird and made so much noise.

    The worst hostel ever! The staff can move your belongings personally, and put outside of the room. And, no one will help you at that situation. Dirty and small! The worst place ever!
