Not good value for money, hostel was cramped, beds were too close together and too low u can’t even sit on your bed, bathrooms were very dated and unclean same with the room, some of the lockers under the beds were broken felt there wasn’t enough room inside, just felt uncomfortable the whole time glad it was only one night.
