Haha! I'm giving this hostel a 5 star rating because I know they actually try to be the worst. With all the advertisements and marketing that goes into making this the worlds worst hostel, I'm actually quite proud to have stayed here. Yes it's as bad as they say, there's a horrid smell, everything's rusty, you wonder if the shower actually cleaned you because the bathrooms are so small and germ infested. the beds are uncomfortable, and the breakfast is as basic as can be. But, I'm a fan of creative marketing, and wow they have done such a great job at being the worst. I'm happy to say, I've done it once, but thank god it was only for one evening. Hats off to anyone adventurous enough to stay here =)
