SO MANY BAD POINTS!! Where to start? On arrival, we were urged to take our shoes off in the reception area where all shoes were kept, it stunk!! we enter the hostel and there is a DOG! My friend is allergic to dogs, there was no mention of a dog staying on any site before booking! We stayed in the basement room, no natural light, poor ventilation. Beds were extremely uncomfortable, mattress very hard, covers were stained (urine,vomit,blood!!!) and pillow was too thin to make a difference. Ceilings were covered in rot and damp, top bunks far too close to ceiling. My other friend had an asthma attack in the night, and all 3 of us woke up feeling short of breath, and very ill. I have no doubts that this was due to the room.
-towels were donated hole ridden old towels.
-linen was dirty and stained
-bathroom was dirty
-no privacy, one toilet, glass doors on showers.
-not enough lockers to accommodate everyone in the room
-not proper lockers -old filing cabinet drawer used
-staff seemed more interesting in gossiping and flirting than they did cleaning.
-roof top terrace is run down, chairs are broken.
-kitchen too small to keep your own food, or cook in there.
-no juice allowed in the fridge.
-whole place is run down!!!!
Anyone who says this place is clean, has a very low standard of cleanliness!! Definitely NOT for people who like comfort, cleanliness or security. Much better places in DC, which we then stayed at and were finally happy again. I would NOT return to this place, not even for one night!
