    unfortunately our stay was not as nice as expected. the hostel is very well located, but that's the only positive point we can say. now we know why it's so well rated. you get a free cocktail if you give the hostel a good rating. that's ridiculous! also it's way too expensive for what you get. it's very dirty and very musty everywhere, the mattresses are very old and disgusting.
