A terrible place that look like abandoned slum. The hostel has only one full time cleansing staff and all the rest are 'volunteer' and a guest. It could take a long time to check in when the staff was out.
It has a serious overbooking that even if you have paid already you are asked from time to time to sleep on a collapsed couch or a broken extra bed. In the worst cases, 8 people are told to sleep on a floor without even a blanket because in this small hostel they want to earn as much as possible but never realise if they have the capacity to take them.
The toliet leaked some weird smell. The toliet has a poor flushing pipe and you often see something disguesting afloat. In a place with 21 dorm beds they only have 1 working toliet with two other broke
ones, so in the morning it takes an hour to wait.
Safety is a serious issue. No guard at night, and the door is either locked (so you can't come back after 12) or simply unlocked( so anyone can come, including a drunken guy who didn't even stay in the hostel ).
The hostel owner openly requests a satisfied customer to write a review on tripadvisor and insists that no negative review is welcome.
