    Really friendly staff. They really want to help you with all your questions and problems. Breakfast is simple, but you have to be early to have a full breakfast.

    Solid location. The staff was friendly. However, be sure to request rooms 6+. If you are in the lower numbers, you will be woken each morning between 6:30am-7:15am. The staff and guests get up and decide to have conversation at full-voice in the kitchen and hallways. One of the cleaning women sleeps in a room that requires a passcode. 4 short, high-pitch beeps and 1 long beep. I know this because she would enter the room roughly 17 times before 8:00am. And the showers were nasty.

    This hostel is okay for one night. The location is perfect but the smell in the hostel isn't good and there isn't enough bathrooms for everybody.

    It took us 45 minutes trying to find the entrance of the hostel because the directions weren't that clear. When we got there, the stuff informed us that our reserved beds had been given to someone else. So they put us in a another semi-finished hostel. The only issue was that the entrance of the building was open to everyone so one of the days that we stayed there, we returned to the hostel to find 4 guys doing drugs right outside the apartment. And no breakfast though it was included.

    I was supposed to stay 5 days, but I left the third one. It's not security at all, seeing a girl being stolen from her bag when it was left next to reception before the chek-in, are no lockers in any room, and being the cheapest hostel around just brings people that you don't want to share your room with. The staff was rude most of the time just for asking basic questions or making them to get up from the chair. I've been in many hostels, some are good, some are ok, but this one is a NO from me

    We stayed there 2 nights, that's the review for the first night, which was bad. Room was dirty, no fire detector, two outlets in the room [one was broken, the other one was at another bed - Hostel didn't had extension cord] Foam mattress was okay. We checked every outlet on the floor, they all DIDN'T WORKED. Our room just had one key, so we couldn't lock up at night since one guy (we didn't know him) came during the night. We felt VERY UNSAFE especially due to missing fire detector and the key.
