Location was good (besides the construction outside and not being able to get to it by car) but this hostel is awful. The worst I've ever stayed in. Everything was dirty, the floors, the bed, the bathroom. Shower was terrible, the water went cold in like 2 minutes. My private dorm was tiny with no window, felt just super dark and gross. I'd avoid this place at all costs. Never staying here again.

An absolutely disgusting hostel. There were flies in the room, the sheets and pillows stank. The kitchen was diabolical- rubbish and food everywhere. Had not been cleaned and was horrid. Toilets and showers were the okay- shower door didn’t shut properly. Was really disappointed with how dirty everything was. There was no atmosphere and the front door didn’t feel very secure as it didn’t shut completely. There was no where to go sit in the night if you needed to because of jet lag or something
