This hostel was nicely located, right beside the dam square. They had a designated smoking room, decent bar prices, and offered an awful free breakfast in the morning. The rooms were extremely dirty and 90% of the hostel guests looked ill. It looked like the 3rd floor of the ICU of your local hospital. You could tell the front desk staff were just mailing it in for their shifts, high as kites processing payments, giving directions and other daily tasks. The hostel was very close to a main train station in case you want to get the hell out of there. The wifi was extremely spotty, don't rely on it - there are tons of McD's around for a steady connection
The rooms had movable lockers that slid on the floor all across the room which was very sketchy. Bring a bike lock to lock your locker to the bunk bed.
overall it was a decent stay, make sure to stock up on medication as you'll probably get sick here. Guests did not look well. For your healths sake, I would highly recommend checking out "st. Christopher's Inns" hostel as an alternative.
