    The lady who runs this hostel was so lovely! Showed us around everything and made sure our group got a room together even though we booked seperately. Bathrooms were nice and clean, and fluffy pillows. Good location near the supermarket.

    The old lady running the place is very friendly and really nice to all the guests. Some of the areas are a bit chaotic as there is mismatched furniture, random stuff laying around... Bathroom was nice and clean (at least in my building, there are several). The location is excellent! Overall a nice experience and I'd stay again :)

    Very Good

    fine for a one night stay. Nothing special, rooms and bathrooms are quite old and could use a good clean, same w kitchen but everything worked fine. The only complain we have is that we were not told that we could not use facilities after checkout. As seasoned hostel users, we know some places like guests to vacate completely after check out while other places are more lenient. We weren’t told anything and the lady was quite rude to us when we were in the kitchen after 10.

    The lady who runs this hostel is so lovely. However it’s desperately in need of a good clean and decluttering. Ok for somewhere to rest your head.

    Great location, close to the downtown with amazing views of the water. However, it was not clean, extremely cluttered, and run down. Looks like it could use a lot of updating.

    This hostel was pretty horrific. It was filthy. Black mold in the bathrooms, cobwebs in the living room, broken light fixtures, and rotten smells in the bedrooms..I felt like I was staying in an orphanage. Would not stay here again.

    This place is old run down, and not fit to be rented as accommodation. The beds are probably more than 20 years old . The rooms smell musty . The photos on line make it look inviting. In the flesh it’s totally different. Look elsewhere. Don’t trust Hotel world that you will pay the balance on arrival as they took the money from our credit card anyway. Not impressed
