    Good atmhosphere in the hostel, the receptionist guy took a couple of us guests out. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom facilities are in a good condition. The rooms however were very cramped, too many beds in a small space.

    A comfortable place with a nice walk down to the city. The staff do a great job keeping the bathrooms and dorms clean, though seemed a little understaffed for the amount of guests. Common areas were a bit scruffy and you need to press a button every 30 seconds to get water in the showers, but overall this was an enjoyable stay with a decent social atmosphere.

    Enjoyed the relatively comfortable bunk beds that didn't have awful squeaks or move significantly as is the case in some hostels

    The staff were nice, the rooms cramped. They had four bunk beds in a small room with only a narrow path to walk. You must rent towels to bathe and the walls are thin. We heard some woman the staff was trying to kick out at midnight and that went on for some time. If we weren’t listening to the woman cursing out the folks trying to get her out, we heard men in the next room talking.

    All right hostel. Good location, but zero atmosphere. Kitchen is messy and cooking facilities very basic. All taps in the whole building automatically close, including the shower taps, really annoying! Doesn't have any kind of safe in the rooms, they charge extra for that.

    The hostel is really good. The only problem is the bad education some people have. They forget for example how would be amazing keeping stuff organazide and clean. These should not be only required from the staff.

    DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU ARE A FEMALE SOLO TRAVELLER! I stayed in a 14 mixed dorm and was the only woman, the whole dorm was old, dirty men and I felt very unsafe. While I was there, one of the men tried to steal my bag and overall everyone in the room smelled. Definitely one of the most unsafe hostels I have stayed in. After my stay I found a review on the 13th page that said the government often pays for homeless people to stay at this hostel. It makes me sad that this was not public knowledge.
