I had stayed here when I was 19 and at the time I thought it was the fanciest nicest hostel in the world. Now that I am closer to 29, maybe I was being naive, but I am still glad that I stayed here again. I loved the white, clean sheets and comfy bed. The staff was incredibly kind and friendly. For the price, I was very happy!

Lots of black mold, room flooded from rain, toilets didn't flush/easily clogged, often no toilet paper, painted over the mold and got paint on all our stuff. Things were often damp and very humid, often no present staff spoke english. Don't book here you will probably be breathing in toxic mold. Staff responded to all the problems (they "cleaned" the mold and painted over it) but there shouldn't have been that many problems in the first place. This is the lowest rating Hostelworld allows

I think the place is very nice in general, but I guess I was very unlucky with my room. The ceiling and walls were covered in a lot of mold next to the beds, the room was very humid without a working AC, the bed and everything else felt moist for that reason, and the WiFi didn’t reach the room. I had a glimpse into the other rooms and they seemed to be okay. The common area was great and clean, big kitchen and everyone was very friendly and the location was great.
