My boyfriend and I spent three nights at this hostel in a private room. We'd deliberately booked a hostel instead of a hotel because we didn't have that much money to spend, but looking back we probably should have just spent the extra cash and had some good nights' sleep...
On arrival at the hostel we found that our window was jammed. Not as in "closed and impossible to open", but... "open and impossible to close". Too bad we were on the street side of the hostel. The (very unfriendly) lady at reception told us the maintenance guy was unavailable that day, but that he would come around and fix things the day after. Needless to say he never showed and we had the worst three nights of sleep ever. It's a really noisy neighbourhood anyway and sleeping with the window open is just a recipe for disaster. Not to mention the roadworks right outside the door that started way too early in the morning, or the gang of drunken teens that occupied the room above ours and stumbled up and down the stairs all night.
We stayed at the American Beauty room, which was alright in itself, except the beds are TINY. My boyfriend could only just fit his feet into the bed and let me tell you he's actually rather short for a guy. No idea what tall guys would do in this room. Thumbs up for the bathroom though, it was clean and spacious.
Overall we might have spent less on this hostel than we would have spent on a hotel, but we still paid way too much for a stay this uncomfortable. Would advise anyone to scrape together their last pennies and get a proper hotel!
