2 words, don't bother!! Worst hostel in the world. Where to begin, it's extremely difficult to find, a small door with a piece of paper attached to the door. The staff don't seem to care about the place at all, they use it as a place to live rather than work. We turned up and were told they only take cash, probably a bit dodgey. There way of checking your reservation is a old school notebook. They basically then throw the keys at you and say there you go. We booked for a 6 person share but were placed in a 8 bed dorm although we only ever had 6 in there. There were no curtains on the windows so as soon as the sun came up you were too. We stayed on a Saturday night, and because the place is ontop of a dance club the music and bass pounds the room until 3am. We had to go to the club because there was no way were sleeping through it.
The rooms are tiny and small and no lockers available. The bathrooms were ok but needed to be regularly cleaned. The wifi sucked. The icing on the cake for us was our last night, there were 3 of us staying in the room until a lady arrived. This lady was clearly not fit to be checked in to anywhere but a mental hospital as all night she was talking and yelling to her self about some trying to steel her sleep and they were going to jail and murder them. She kept leaving the room and coming back and started all over again. In the end the whole experience of that was quite funny but disturbing.
If you want a place just to put your head and have no standards this place is for, if not pay a couple dollors more.
Everyone goes on about the location of this, it is good if you like bar hoping and like to try lots of food but for the tourist things it's a little out of the way.
