    The stay was pretty good but I had cancelled 2 of my beds through emailing the hostel but they hadn't communicated this to the website so I was still charged for the extra deposits. The staff went that helpful and told me to just contact the website to sort it out

    Very nice place to stay, good transport access, only issues were heat, which I can't blame on the hostel and cleanliness of the communal shower block. That being said the ensuite shower was spotless and worked fine.

    The location is great and the place is very clean with enough toilet facilities that you don't have to wait. Though like a lot of hostels the staff look like they'd rather be anywhere else and the breakfast is a miserable cop out of nothing more than toast, cereal and some dirty diah water they labled as 'coffee'. The key card lockers in the room also did not work.

    Hostel is pretty old and the staff is not helpfull at all. Shared rooms are to small and really dirty! The ensuit dorm has even a smaller bathroom: when you take a shower the whole bathroom gets wet. The worst part was that was a hot night and they don’t have any kind of air conditioning. The hostel has many floors and they don’t have a lift, so you have to carry on your bags through a narrow stair.
