I read some of the bad reviews before I stayed here, and passed them off as being over the top as reviews are biased towards. To my dissappointment all the bad reviews seemed fairly accurate.
To sum my experience up:
As a single female traveller I booked to stay in an all female dorm. I got placed in a mixed dorm, which I did not realise until I woke up in the middle of the night to men walking around in their underwear. This normally wouldn't have been a problem except that the showers had no door or locking mechanism which made me feel quite uncomfortable. The showers were cold at night, and I had to get someone to fix the hot water (which to their credit they did promptly).
The 'continental' breakfast was only a muffin and tea or coffee. The 'free dinner buffet' was free if you bought a drink from the bar.
The staff were barely helpful, they answered my questions but have not got the right mentality for people working in the hotel industry.
In a nutshell I felt very unsafe at this hostel, and annoyed because all the claims about free things were mostly untrue. I generally don't mind if a cheap hostel doesn't have free stuff but don't advertise it if you aren't going to provide it.
