Very cramped hostel stayed in the room on the pictures but only difference was they had twice as many beds in there, felt like a prison. Wouldn’t recommend as a solo traveller many people are staying there long term and aren’t interested in interacting with other travellers as they stick together felt like I was intruding in someone else’s house. Also not enough working toilets for the amount of people and the night staff weren’t friendly.

Good place to stay for a few days, the only bad thing was that they had some bathrooms in maintenance so we had 3 showers and 4 toilets for all the residents

They lost my booking, didn't have enough beds, but still charged my card and don't respond to emails asking for a refund. I booked a night, arrived at 930pm but they couldn't find my booking, I showed them the payment that I made and they said sorry, send a message to management and sent me on my way. They charged my card the next day, I sent them an email asking for a refund the next day using their website form, no reply, then a follow up email, it has now been several weeks with no contact.
