Overall, it was handy to count on this hostel to stay but this time round, flaws outweighed good sides. The atmosphere is still relaxed and friendly, however cleanliness has become a problem and some member of staff act as if it wasn't theirs. Bins in rooms or kitchen are often overwhelmed by trash, toilets and bathrooms are dirty. The kitchen... More

This must be the cheapest hostel I've ever stayed in, brilliant. You'd easily pay triple the price elsewhere for the same quality. That said, you don't get much for your money. The bedrooms are very stuffy, warm and a bit stinky, the mattresses are very thin, the bathrooms are quite unhygienic, the tables are sticky, but nothing a traveller won't... More

In my room there was a shower which did not work was full... More

Please, please, do not visit this hostel. The whole place is filthy and run down. The rooms are unbelievably hot and smell like the socks of someone who has been on an exercise bike for three hours. These metal contraptions that form triple bunk beds are barely big enough to fit an average sized person and the risk they will... More

I get that you can't expect luxury when hostelling but you have to keep some standards and this place just didn't. There was no curtain on the window, the double duvet had a single duvet cover on it and the room wasn't clean (there was an old yoghurt pot in our room). Avoid.

I found this hostel to be unnecessarily dirty. Everything could do with a good scrub and the hostel room smelt overwhelmingly stale. The bunk beds were very rickety and sleeping on the top bunk felt like a real health and safety hazard. In addition to this, the free breakfast is so bad its quite funny. All you get is bread...

The staff are pretty friendly and the common room is ok. It's also pretty cheap. However, the shower room is akin to a cesspit: human hair and God knows what else floats around on an inch of water, making it impossible to get dressed, should you manage to get as far as actually washing yourself. Be warned.

A putrid hell hole which had no form of cooling so the temperature got to over 40oC. Staff wandering in and out of out rooms in the early hours of the morning to shut our one tiny window did not help. Showers were disgusting. Staff were miserable. Never Ever Again!

I don't have the greatest hostelling experience in the world, but this is the worst I've stayed in. An appallingly small room for 18 people with triple-deck beds with a fairly low ceiling so that the person on the middle has to vault in, broken privacy curtains on some beds, mattresses that barely merit the name. Windows that don't properly... More
