My friend and I stayed here for three night. and if I'm perfectly honest I wish we chose somewhere else.. The location was good however as there was no double glazing or any sound proofing it meant you barely slept as the people in the streets were shouting and screaming around 4am, which was rather annoying.The room was really cramped,...

This hostel is unclean, it's smells as if the bedding has never been changed, the curtains are stained with what looks like dirt. The showers at the hostel are dirty and are also shared between many people. The toilet constantly smells, and doesn't look like it's ever been cleaned. The information on the website for this hostel is incorrect. The... More

At the end of the day this place isn't expensive and you get what you pay for. Saying that I expected worse. The bed was basic but clean, we could smoke in the room and the shower was cleaned daily. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was alright but again it's a cheap place. It's right round... More

A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in the first week of June. We knew not to expect much and were actually pleasantly surprised as we were expecting a lot worse! Rooms are very basic. We had a twin room on the second floor which contained 2 single beds, fairly clean, small table, 2 chairs, small wardrobe and... More

Even though the location is good, we were quite unsatisfied given the price. Basic room with a thin bed and lousy bed springs, super cramped bathroom and shower, wifi doesn't work on the last floor. we were told in the hotel description we'd be able to checkin at 7:30 but when we arrived we were told to leave the luggage...

Wasn't expecting too much as the price was relatively cheap for our stay. The rooms were very basic and old fashioned, myself and my friend had booked a double room, we surely had the smallest room in the hostel and the bed was not a 'double' as it was a pull up camp bed and quite small to be fitting...

Friendly enough staff. Room was clean but the shared toilet and shower room had an awful smell to them which at one point meant we had to go to a nearby takeaway just to use their facilities. All I would say is that you get exactly what you are paying for here and in hindsight I would have went somewhere... More

We arrived there around 2:30am. Knocked on the locked door. The guy had one unrented room and we took it. The clerk came in our room the following morning while we were doing stuff couples do in bed and insisted on talking. We said please get out! And he continued chatting as if we were having coffee or something like... More

After reading several reviews about this hostel I was a little skeptical about staying here, however we booked it as it was cheap and we figured we'd only be there on a night to sleep. I stayed here with my partner, my brother, his fiance and my niece. Myself and my partner had room number 9 (would definitely recommend it!),... More

This hostel has serious cleanliness issues! I moved my bed to find a rat box and poison scattered all over the room. The toilet literally was the worst thing I've ever smelt, we had to hold our nose to even get in our room! The location is good but that is everything good about this hostel!
