The staff was helpful and nice but everything looked dirty and old. The bathrooms were disgusting (always dirty and messy) and the rooms were too hot. The low price is not worth it, since they charge extra for everything (including wi fi). Wouldn't go back.

Unsure on my thoughts about this hostel really. I feel it's quite overpriced for what you get. The place is fairly clear I.e kitchen is spotless and great cooking facilities and the showers are fairly good. However for 80 dollars a night the rooms are really small and so hot. They fan just blows hot air it's so unbearable to... More

This is one of the worst hostels i have stayed at. Ive stayed in dive hostels before but this Dickensian squalor was the worst ranking. The showers where so unsanitary there was even a peep hole in all the shower walls. The water pressure was that of a dribbling two year old and freezing cold. The kitchens I will say... More

this hostel was really allowing, the people there are nice and the staff like Daniel (see you again brother!) good events and activities! You'll enjoy this place normally. Everything is clean at anytime (or almost when it hasn't too much bad boys in the hostel) and when you need something, everyone from the staff is ready to help you. What... More
