I've stayed in some dodgy places before and very much have the attitude that it's part of te adventure.
However this was something else.
Photos are very misleading from the website. We were down for a gig in The Marquee and spent most of the time trying to get somewhere else. Again not like me, I would've just sucked it up but this place was really bad.
No towels in the room (even though it states on the website private rooms get towels). Suffice to say no showers this morning, not what you want when you're travelling for 8hours.
When I asked the guy at reception he was ridiculously ignorant and told me no towels, but we have a sink in the bathroom so that should be enough (?!?!)
To top it off the door doesn't lock from the inside. Luckily my partner was with me but severe oversight on security.
This place tries to appeal to people of all backgrounds but unless you're a student or party person who's not actually gonna be in the hostel...it's bad.
