    The place was super clean and the shower facilities are great for a hostel. The common area was nice to have access to. Rooms were clean with big lockers for each persons belongings. The wifi didn't work very well and other guests and staff weren't the most welcoming but overall good value for money.

    Ok if you know what you’re booking. WiFi is mostly not working (although they said they will change the company soon), kitchen and showers average clean. If you want to cook and eat you have to get your own cutlery set for a deposit at reception, pots and pans will be given out in exchange of your room key. Nobody will come and refill bread and jams for breakfast, you have to get it at the reception too. Lots of stairs. Have stayed at equally cheap but better hostels.

    The hostel is run down and the facilities are horrible. Showers and toilets are dirty and in need of a refurbishment. The kitchen is a giant dirty mess. The ‘free breakfast’ included in the price was a few crumbs of bread and cereal but no sign of milk (and this was at 7:15am - breakfast only starts at 7). My room was too noisy to get any sleep. The bed was extremely uncomfortable I could feel the springs coming through the mattress. I wasn’t given a duvet cover just a bed sheet. Won’t be back

    This hostel is great if youre long stay or dtaying in a group, but i felt unwelcome as a solo traveller. Noone locks the doors and dorms are dirty. Receptionist was rude, didnt provide me any check out info and was really offhand when i had issues. On the other hand, the other receptionist was very helpful. This place is pretty hit and miss depending on the staff and the other guests.

    We arrived at the hostel around 1am, the guy at reception was rude, unfriendly, unorganized and very unprofessional. Basically just made us pay and gave us the sheets to make our beds. In our rooms, all the beds were taken. We finally got a bed each but missing a pillow. Didn't feel like it was clean. People around with weird vibes. Free breakfast with barely any food and where you have to give refundable 10$ cash (not specified anywhere) for dishes and utensils. Do no recommend to anyone.

    Notices some things disappeared from my room, asked my roommates about it and they told me they saw the cleaning lady took it. When i went to reception to find my things they couldnt find them and said straight to my face that they didnt believe me! They treat their customers very badly. I suggest you find another hostel. Also you cant bring your own alcohol on the premises which is a big let down. Old and decrepit
