If you want to be treat like a child, then this hostel is for you.
Upon arrival we were bombarded with rules, such as no shoes (unnecessary in my opinion) and additional rules such as no stealing - inappropriate and unnerving.
Security lacking, only a code to access the front door, anyone could just follow you in and your room does not have a personal lock.
Most of staff very helpful and considerate. Housekeepers charge into your room early hours to empty the trash, that is only housekeeping you receive and also unhelpful when informing them of showers being cold. Not the cleanest of facilities either.
For the amount of rooms and guests in them, the quantity of bathroom facilities is lacking. Some do not have toilets and others are out of of bounds for a large portion of the day so that the hostel can do laundry.
Wi-Fi was advertised, only certain areas within the building that this was accessible - not ideal.
Would not return out of choice.
