Whoever wrote that this place is one step above a youth hostel was being generous. I would not recommend staying here unless you are college student travelling on a very tight budget (or, alternatively, a surfer living out of your EuroVan). Our room was tiny and dark. However, my main complaint is simply that the place was not clean.I was up all nights sneezing with water eyes and an itchy nose, which only stopped when i left the room. Upon examination in the morning, i found that the pillows were literally stuffed with something that looked like 100 handfuls of balled up laundry lint. Yuck.
In addition, perhaps in an effort to save energy or money, the hotel keeps all hallway lights OFF. Which means that coming up the stairs to our room we were forced to feel around the dark walls to find the light switch in order to find our way to our room. This was not only annoying, but also, just plain dangerous.
