The owner is rude, obnoxious and he looks like he is homeless. His hostel caters for the homeless and mentally ill. The bathrooms are filthy so is the kitchen. People smoke pot regularly in the common room and it smells like dead mice. It's not uncommon to see mice running into the kitchen and they are also in the rooms.... More

Seriously, this place is so disgusting and not suitable for backpackers at all! Mainly junkies/hobo's live here that can sometimes be very verbally agressive. Warm water in the showers is only available for 3 minutes and is then cut off, toilets are disgusting and are never cleaned just as the kitchen. The owner is a suspicious man that doesn't write...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS PLACE, THE OWNER IS WEIRD AND THE PLACE IS DIRTY. The bathroom smells. The kitchen is dirty. So many criminals stay at this place kind of halfway house. Never ever stay at this place again.
