It's not a terrible place, but the dorm was overcrowded and had a nasty smell. The bathroom was often flooded. Towels and laundry are twice the price of other places. Overall I think it's too expensive for a small dark place with no windows.
I woke up in the middle of the night with the bunkbed rocking back and forth like there was an earthquake! When I climbed down the guy in the bunk below had a chick in bed with him. Classy! That's not the hostel's fault though. But seriously who does that in a 10 bed dorm?
