There was only staff at the reception from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm in the afternoon, which was very odd and made check in and check out difficult specifically with early flights. The kitchen had bugs and the fridges were absolutely gross although the countertops were generally clean. There was barely anyone in the hostel, which gave it a creepy feel and to top it off, the thing that made me most upset was there was no hot/ warm water all 4 days I was there.

Extremely central, clean and quiet. Don’t expect luxury. The rooms have plain floors, no bedside lights or bedside tables, no mirror. Just a bare overhead bulb, two beds and a metal locker. But the sheets are clean and it’s quiet. Communal bathrooms were newly renovated and clean. Kitchen is well stocked and clean. The other guests quietly went about their business.
