    Very well located for the restaurants and bars. The staff were also very nice and helpful. The room was very small and some of the toilets and showers were broken. I think it was a little bit overpriced.

    It looks like a regular hostel a few decades back - comfy atmosphere but no room for your stuff in the rooms and the bathrooms could be cleaner. No breakfast either so it's more expensive than other hostels overall.

    The hostel says that it has parking. It does not. It just means you can park a car near but you'll have to pay. The kitchen and living room is well kept but the bedroom and bathroom were dirty.

    Rooms were very dirty, cobwebs everywhere and damp all over the roof in the bathrooms. No key to get in the front door. Its in a food location but the cleanliness needs to be seriously dealt with

    One of the worst hostels I've stayed in. Bathrooms were filthy, I'd be surprised if they were cleaned weekly. Bins were overflowing and there was no toilet paper. Rooms were cramped and extremely messy. There was clearly no system in place for managing rooms, as I was woken up to drama about someone being put in someone else's bed. The price is cheap bht considering no breakfast is included it's not that cheap. Would not recommend
