Extremely unimpressed by this disgusting smelly hostel. We had a private room located on the first floor the smell as soon as you passed reception was revolting, no previous warning before arrival about the “hostel cat” which just completely puts me off as soon as I stepped in. You would also NOT be refunded if you had allergies which is an absolute disgrace. The room alone was dated, paint peeing off the walls plug sockets hanging off the walls a fan with inches deep dust. Avoid at all costs.
