    We only spent one night here in a private room so didn’t use all the facilities. But the room was nice and clean and the staff were friendly. Only downside was that it was a bit noisy, our bedroom window backed into the kitchen area and people were talking outside.

    The hostel is good and clean, staff very helpful. I stayed in one of the room on the ground floor close to the reception and common area that its quiet noise 24 hours, also with ear plugs did not really helped. Struggle to sleep a bit but at the end was a nice stay. Recommended

    The hostel was located at the pretty bad location because of the riots. I loved the hostel, people and the stuff. Breakfast was very good too but the safety was very bad. The entire hostel was covered by protestants and I got hit by tear gas 4 times.

    Not the best place- but super cheap and staff very helpful. The double room not great in the slightest, and the shower was a dribble!!! Really not a brilliant stay.

    We stayed in a private room for 4 nights and we were not impressed. The building is really old and has some nice features, but it's not well maintained. My biggest critique was our room, the sheets were so dirty and not bed sheet not hugging the mattress. I would wake up sleeping on the disgusting mattress. The shower in the ensuite bathroom is a joke - is 1x1 you're better off using the shared bathrooms - which is what we did.

    Rooms were terrible. Shower didn’t work, toilets didn’t flush, bed had bed bugs. Good location and security but the room itself was awful. Would not recommend at all.

    Very dirty and run down and lots and lots of bed bugs. I arrived at the front desk and overheard 2 people complaining about bed bugs and they got moved to a different room. I went and inspected my room to find bed bugs right next to the bed. People in my room didn't seem to care. Another person I knew staying at the hostel at the same time also left because of bed bugs. I immediately packed my things and moved to a different hostel. Go to another properties instead
