We were pleased with the location but it started off quite badly when we had to climb 10 flights of stairs to get to our room. The room was dingy at best and we didn't even get into the bed...we figured it's just 2 nights, we'll tough it out. Unfortunately, the roof deck was outside our window and we were kept awake most of the night by drunken partyers. If that wasn't bad enough, on the second night when we returned to our room and turned on the lights we were greeted by many cockroaches. We packed up and left. The hostel refused to give us another room, a refund, a partial refund or to even help us find other accommodations. At midnight we walked out and went to find another place to stay. We wrote letters and made phone calls but to no avail. We were never written back or helped out. Hostelworld wasn't helpful either although they did remove the listing not long afterward.
