Hopefully the place has improved since I stayed here, though judging from reviews it hasn't.
Room was disgusting: bloodstains on sheets, no effort made by housekeeping when it came to making beds, thick dust on floors. The bathroom was poorly designed and the floors in the toilets were always wet.
When reviewers say: 'what do you expect, it's a hostel', I shake my head. I've managed backpacking hostels and know backpackers are not who they once were. Most will refuse to put up with this level of filth, and rightly so. I was appalled by this hostel, and anyone who values their health will find another place to stay. Also, sleep was not possible, so unless you're looking to party all night, every night, go elsewhere.
I did not choose to stay here, the hostel was allocated to me by IEP, who organised my canadian working holiday visa. I would not stay here by choice.
So what if you're ONLY paying around $30 CAD per night? Basic cleanliness and friendly customer service should still be part of the experience. As a hostel manager I was appalled and would not return or recommend. This place needs to clean up its act.More
