“No Working Toliets”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2006

This place was the hostel from hell.... it was a complete dump.

I have stayed in hostels before & have not had any problems. This place was appalling. Like I said above - the toliets did not flush for 4 days straight. You would go into the bathroom & see other peoples mess in the toliet.... it remained there for 3-4 days. Staff never appeared to clean or check the toliets / bathrooms. Considering the fact that the shower was in that room also, it raises health issues - you have to go into a stinking room to have your shower.

The place in general was a dump - there was debris all over all hallways - it seemed to be a fire hazzard waiting to happen.

Staff were flat out rude & just did not appear to care about guests at all.

I understand this is a hostel & not a 5 star hotel, but there are basic cleanliness standards that they simply missed. We paid in advance for a weekly booking & left after 4 days.
I only wish we weren't too sick & exhausted to request a refund.

Dont stay here. You will regret it.
