Finding this hostel was a HUGE hassle :( It had moved locations without stating it on the website nor notifying us, so we spent a stressful two hours walking around in the heat of the day in June. Once we found it, we were disappointed to find out that they had no AC. The shower was horrible. We got roomed... More

Plus points: the staff here are good and friendly, the bed was comfortable, and the hostel is walking distance from the train station and sights. Negatives: nothing amazing about the place and slightly dated get up.

I spent one night in this hostel and that was more than enough. The bathrooms looked like they had not been cleaned in years, the showered were very grimy and there were signs everywhere saying not to flush toilet paper. A staff member busted into our room at 2345 and was surprised the lights were off, he proceeded to turn... More

This would have been my most disappointing hostel stay throughout my europe trip. The beds were dirty (need new linen), The hostel itself was outdated and old. For us it was a real pain to get in and out of the hostel, there are two main doors that become locked in the evening, we had to wait 20minutes for someone... More

We were in a double room (that could be a triple due to the single bunk on top of the double bed) with shared bathroom. There were 2 showers & 2 toilets shared between 4 rooms that I believe were all similar to our own. There was a communal area & small kitchen in our little flat which was in... More

Cheap, friendly and perfect location on the main road from the station to the attractions (tower etc). This hostel is run by great owners and helpful staff, the only problem is the number of stairs to get up to the place itself (not recommended for heavy luggage).

Pros: The hostel is in the middle of the town, not too far from supermarkets, video games and pool for travelers after a long day Cons: staff was half the time never at the front desk when you needed them, rooms get way to hot that you have to open up the windows at night and let the mosquitoes in

This place is not recommended for those with heavy luggage - i.e. myself who had 30kg worth that needed to be lugged up too many flights of stairs. The place itself was great, we got a 5 person room for just the two of us and the toilet was clean and acceptable also. The staff were very nice. I left... More

It is a good place, the location is very good, close to the train station. The rooms was Ok. The biggest problems are: 1) Some dirty toilets. I used one that was ok, my friend used another that was not ok, It is probably caused by impolite guests. 2) if you need to use the kitchen, for me it was... More
