My sister and I turned up at this hostel last summer, and didn't even make it past the reception desk before getting out as quickly as possible. The hostel was dark, dingy and smelly with all the doors open to the rooms revealing the filthiest rooms ive ever seen. It looked more like a crack den, and I'm a seasoned hosteller so I know what a bad hostel looks like! The atmosphere felt weird and threatening - I would not have felt safe here as a female. Stay ANYWHERE but here - there's a reason why its crazy cheap!!
