The music is so hard that my bed is shaking. Showers are filthy and there was a weird guy trying to break open my shower-door and...

I don't know if my experience with this place was unique, but I had a great time at this hostel. My friend had made the booking, and reading these reviews I was expecting something awful. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. Check-in was easy, and staff were helpful. We booked a double room but they gave us a nice...

I wish I paid more attention to trip advisor reviews on this place. I can not even begin to tell you how terrible this place is, in fact I already submitted a review and trip advisor did not publish it, so here is a very toned down version. Its DISGUSTING, DIRTY, SMELLY, I think you get the picture..... We had...

Pretty much just gotta echo what everyone else said - probably the worst hostel I've stayed in in a Western Country. WiFi is pretty much non-existant, rooms are dirty, with sheets clearly not washed between customers, near impossible to get a fork or cup in the kitchen, and music comes up from bar below so loud that you simply can't...

I've been here just a few hours and I already feel it's the worst choice I've could ever make... It's an horrible place... I think they have stole my money paying 25$ per night in this horrible place! The share room with 10 people it's super small and claustrophobic. I can here the karaoke that they have in the bar...

My feedback would be 2,5 stars. We booked a double room with bunk beds, the room was enough clean . Toilette could be clean better, but acceptable. The housekeeper was kind. Walls and doors were not thick,so we heard a lot of noise . Breakfast was so low. Normal price, around 30$/nigt each

Worse hostel I have ever stayed in. As I'm typing this review my friend found glass on the carpet. Within 30 minutes of our stay we saw 4 cockroaches crawling on the walls. All taps and showers are constantly running with horrible pressure. Cleaning is not priority.

The worst hostel I have stayed in ever .I have left this morning with a body covered in bed bug / flea bits. They have become so bad it's been suggested by the pharmacist I seek urgent hospital medical attention.
