All rooms lead off a central open living area where people smoke, play drums and very loud music until past 1am. The rooms are open and there is no way of shutting yourself off from the main area. It's impossible to sleep and after 4+ hour of smoke and noise it's unbearably frustrating.
I also was reccomended to go on two tours. Both were an absolute rip off. The tour guide took us to the most expensive shops where there was immense pressure to buy very expensive goods and you were trapped in a very small room with no way of politely leaving. Not only were the shops a rip off, the tour guide asked for a tip and when he saw that I had a €20 euro note he refused to take me home unless I tipped him the full €20. This is more than double the cost of the tour.
People seem very nice at this hostel at first, but it's all a ploy to make money.
Honestly would not recommend this hostel. I'm 21 yes old and have been backpacking all through europe and this is the worst place I've stayed.
