Stayed here for a few nights this summer after checking it out online, seemed it was going to be an ok place, view was changed however. I'm going to list the negatives - dirty bed, hadn't been cleaned or changed since previous,
About 1.5ft between bunks,
One socket in room of 12 bunks,
Faulty door lock,
Lack of utensils at breakfast, (plastic fork and napkin for toast),
Strong damp smelling basement bar,
Poor wifi signal anywhere but the reception,
Toilet cubicals, you had to sit sideways on the toilet unless you were a small child,
Dozens of flies throughout the shower room.
I have travelled all over Europe and always stayed in hostels, this one is close to being worst on the list.
Overall a bad experience.
