The personal was young and kind. We get all information we needed. After entering the room noticed that the walls are not very thick, so we could hear every words (and later on the 'doings') from the neighbours. The beds were old but okay so far, but better to bring your own sleeping bag, because there could be some mysterious... More

I´m not picky where i stay when I travel - so the fact that it was dirty and very run down didn´t bother me. But I can see how it would bother other people. The toilets and showers were dirty and often there would be toilet paper missing. Brekkie was ok - if you woke up erly enough to catch... More

the receptionist at this hostel was so rude, we couldn't wait to get out of the place, we were meant to stay a further night but couldn't stand being there any longer. How she ever got a job in customer service I do not know. Also the rooms are so small, they try and fit as many people into one... More

We stayed one night in a double room. The room was decent size with a comfortable bed. There was a fridge, TV and air-con all for $60, cheaper than other places we'd stayed. The bathrooms were dirty despite being closed half the day for cleaning. One shower cubicle didn't lock, so despite my shower running, two people tried to enter... More

I regretted the moment I was showed the room. It was really disgusting, filthy bed sheet, blanket, windows, ants in the small fridge. The toilet floor... More
