it was ridiculously dirty, the bathrooms were hardly even accessible to use, there’s one tiny common area that fits maybe 1 person. The rooms are way too small for the amount of people on them with no privacy. The photos online are not even of this hostel. It should be a $10 hostel not a $50 one

The restrooms were not so nice or clean. The room for 6 people had only 2 plugs. The location it’s not so central, but you can use the underground. It’s good enough but probably wouldn’t choose again.
