    Nice outside area and tv room. Beds are ok, showers big enough. Kitchen could use some love, better storage for appliances. Very nice is that the tv room and small eating area and fridges are accessible 24/7. It’s a small hostel so it feels homier than base, wake up and all these other big ones. Corner rooms are pretty noisy, right next to the street and loud traffic lights. Location on the map is nice, 5min walk to central and the park with basketball courts is across the road

    It was so dirty. The rooms looked like they hadn't been hoovered in a month. Used tissues under the bed. Wouldn't surprise me if the sheets were reused tbh. Also lacked bowls and new washing up sponges.

    The room was a mess when we arrived. There were three girls living there for more than two months. It seemed more like a room in a house than a hostel. The room and bathroom weren’t clean. I understand that the hostel is really cheaper than others, however, it could have been more clean and receptive. The staff were very nice and they tried to resolve the situation about the room.
