    Very Good

    -My room was room 15 bunk 2 so it was right next to the open bar and friday it had a live band performance. Music was incredibly loud but i have managed to sleep thankfully. I heard there are earplugs available at the reception. -Lockers (without padlock) and a big container r provided for each bed. Great that there is a fridge and ensuite bathroom for the 4 bed female dorm. -hostel is right next to a local market which is cool, rather than a very touristy hotspot next to it.

    Very Good

    It says they offer a free evening meal to all guests. This is not true. They do not cater to vegetarians so if you are veggie do not book this hostel in the hopes of getting a free meal. Wifi only works in communal areas and is a bit spotty.if you're not bothered about the free meal or wifi then this place is pretty good otherwise. Plenty of films to watch in the lounge, terrace outdoor area is good and sociable. Plenty of evening activities, lots of plug sockets, beds not too creaky

    This place was disgusting, the bed I arrived to was a broken top bunk and coved in hair so I had to strip the bed myself and sleep without anything on the mattress. The room stank and the fridge was full of disgusting smelling food that had definitely not been cleaned out.
