Worst hostel experience I have ever had. The staff were extremely unhelpful and it seemed to be of great pain for them to help. A woman in my shared dorm spent the whole night screaming and I was extremely concerned for her mental wellbeing. The staff did not seem care and only after a number of pleas to change rooms did they allow me to switch rooms even though there was plenty of spare beds. Also no privacy and no curtains in shared beds. Did not get any sleep and in these sort of circumstances you would

Very Good

Very good location, very friendly and helpful staff and also a lot of nice amenities (rooftop pool/bar, secure storage, lockers as well as towels). But there is no kitchen (there is a stove, which you can't use, no plates, no cutlery: nothing, just a fridge really) as well as no nice seating area/lounge. Also they let people check in way after midnight, so don't be suprised to wake up from strangers coming in your room (would be nice to organize that better, to feel safer esp. as a woman).
