this is the kind of hostel that would get shut down in many countries. very unsafe and gross, horrible atmosphere. i'd literally pay 5 times as much per night to not sleep there again. hostelworld should really consider removing this hostel from their website.

Very Good

Decent hostel, staff weren’t the friendliest and there wasn’t much atmosphere but other than that it was good for a one night rest. The room was also really hot for some reason which made it a bit harder to sleep.

Felt like a school camp but also felt unsafe. Very old with small bunks (couldn't sit upright on the bottom bunk) and no ladders to the top bunk. There was no lockers in the shared dorms so just had to use our own padlocks to secure zips on bags. Some of the guests lived and worked at the hostel, and others just seemed a bit sketchy, so was not a very good social vibe. Also expensive to do laundry at €10 per load. Always had to dry dishes with dirty tea towels… Only positive was the location.
