    It will be better without “free breakfast”. I came around 9 am and there was only coffee, tea and cornflakes.

    Scam. So dirty. Bugs. Broken beds. Two toilets only. 5 lockers. Dirty sheets. Do NOT leave valuable things in the reception, no one works there at night or in the morning. Free breakfast = warm milk,1 bag of cereals, 3 bananas for all guests. I even asked if I could have the owner's e-mail address to ask about the dirtyness and safety issues, didn't get it. Doors open 24/7, anyone can come and go. No one cares. A year ago I stayed in other hostel, much better - go there instead!!!

    Staff were never at the desk, had to wait half an hour before someone rocked up to check me in. Pungent odor throughout the building, full of flies, dirty sheets, disgusting shower, and strange people, not to mention 5 lockers for the whole hostel. This meant I had to carry my backpack with me throughout the day, and at night sleep with it, or risk it being stolen, especially with the room doors that don't lock. No atmosphere, either. I am not fussy but appreciate basic hygiene and security.

    First and foremost the hostel did not provide us the rooms even though we had a prior booking. They just shifted us to a different hostel without any prior notice via mails or call. When we arrived there they just told hostel is full and no rooms. When we started questioning then they arranged room at another hostel which was quite far. Also it was unhygenic and I was embarrassed to book the rooms for my friends along with me. I would want to claim for money back!
