    We enjoyed our stay as it was very close to our event. However the showers on our floor were cold 2 days in a row We were a bit annoyed that we had to remove all our belongings from our room for a whole day while it was fumigated We were concerned that hand rails on stair wells were badly in need of repair and the smoke alarm in one of rooms was very dodgy (?OSH) Overall it was a pleasant experience

    You pay for what you get, rooms are really cheap but the staff don’t really know what they’re doing, security is up to you, it seems the staff let anyone stay including old men who follow the younger girls around and stare at them. But worst of all is that they literally DO NOT CLEAN the rooms. It was soo grotty even for hostel standards! We changed hostels cause the vibes were just not good!

    This place was disgusting! There was mould all over the bathroom, the toilet seat was on the floor, the beds were covered in bed.m bugs and the floor was sticky! I paid extra to stay in an all female room but that didn’t make my stay any better. I had stuff stolen from my bag and when I went to report it to the staff, the receptionist who was clearly high (red eyes) laughed in my face. It was quite easy for someone to steal from me seeing as the door hardly locked. Do not waste your money here!!
