My room didn't have a window,I had a private room and it felt like i was in jail, the bathrooms didn't have TP in it more times then I'll like, as I was stuck in there tell someone came in. The staff was really nice from what they have, but the kitchen was disorganised, and I wouldn't go back to this place again, and it was over priced for the room, you'll have more space in a Dom then a private one

Our stay at crackhead Central.... This was one of the worst hostels I've stayed in. The staff were nice but that is the only good thing. The dorm room had punch holes in the walls and the fireplaces were hanging off of the ceiling. The place was really dirty I saw coackraches in the kitchen. No atmosphere, the common area was like a dentists waiting room. But worst of all was the company. Alot of strange people about and the Brazilian man in our room was really rude and ate food at 4am in bed.
