What an absolute nightmare!!! Firstly the signage for the hostel was pretty much non existent. A tiny A4 sign above a door in an awful back alley! We then had the pleasure of climbing up 5 flights of winding, uneven stairs in 40 degree heat. Once we finally arrived the hostel common room (which is absolutely nothing like the photos on the website or bookings.com) we were able to check in. We were shown to our room, that had other guests belongings on our bed, but don't worry, the owners just lifted and shifted them to the other side of the room. The hostel had about 2 showers for approx 40 people so that was interesting. Also our room has no fan, no reading lights, one power point (which was running a fairly average fan) so we had to charge out phones off the power point in the common room. There was dried blood smeared on the wall of one of the shower cubicles!
On a positive note the staff were very friendly and helpful. A breakfast of donuts was provided each morning and the location was really fantastic. The prices were also very reasonable.
Would we stay again?? HECK NO!
