I have never written a hostel review before but felt the need too for this one. The staff here are absolutely ridiculously rude. If you book in you are not actually guaranteed to have a bed upon arrival as they are constantly overbooking. A lot of the time people are either told to sleep on the sofa or if you are lucky they may throw someone who has been staying there for a long time out of their bed and put them on the sofa instead, Infact I saw a man sleeping on pillows in the hallway too. They say there is a "bar" in the hostel so you cannot bring in your own alcohol but infact this is a cupboard with some beer in it. Only the manager who is never ever there is allowed to sell this alcohol so infact you cannot drink at all. They throw people out all the time for no reason at all apart from the fact they have overbooked so much they have to throw out 10 people (and dont even give them a refund.)
This hostel treats backpackers terribly.
