Great location, downfall it’s always noisey from outside streets and from people screaming from inside hall during after hours. Showers could use a clean more often during the day. Our key cards weren’t working and had to be reactivated daily. The beds are very shaky. The button to access elevator from the second floor doesn’t work.

Really unimpressed. ▪️ There were cockroaches in the room and dining area. ▪️ There was a fight one night which made loads of noise. ▪️People were screaming in the corridors until the early hours so you couldn't get much sleep. ▪️The showers were too small and usually dirty. ▪️The dining room area is too small to meet people and chill out. I've stayed in plenty of hostels in Europe and Australia and this was easily the worst I've been to.
