    I had needed to stay at a place that was open to check in past midnight and this ended up being a great option for a one star hostel! The staff is there 24 hours and the hostel is a close walk to center area. The staff knew good English and was very accommodating to me. You can leave your things there after you check out and pick up later.

    Very strange place — staff who seemed to know nothing about online bookings, and some odd characters around. Good to have a kitchen and the room was fine for a short budget stay, but all in all a weird vibe. I wouldn’t have wanted to be here as a lone female traveller.

    It is pretty cheap, but I have stayed at cheaper hostels waaay better than this one. Felt at unease all the time. There is no structure and feels like there is no staff just a man hanging around. The doors to the rooms do not lock and nearly doesn’t even close, awful beds and generally a weird atmosphere. They also charge you extra to storage your luggage. And it was even just put in the common room and I never tried that a hostel charged extra for that kind of service. Would not recommend
