This hostel looked so nice in the reception area but once you got through the doors it was another story! I stay in hostels and backpackers most of the time when I travel so it's not as if im new to basic backpacker or share accommodation. However this place was just so below standard. Our room had a giant hole in the wall and we could hear everything from the rooms around us. Both the male and female bathrooms were filthy on both days that we were there. The mens bathroom actually had vomit all through it and both myself and my partner decided not to even shower during our stay they were that bad. Also breakfast service was like Lord of the Flies with so many people snatching and competing for food, there were no staff and just so many guests serving themselves entire loaves of bread it was a bit ridiculous and didnt leave much left for others.
