I ended up at this hostel because Black Sheep Hostel and Casa Kiwi were full. The private room had a mattress that was so bowed and lumpy it not longer fit in the frame. Two of the beds in the 5 bed dorm (the fifth being a mattress on the floor next to the bunks) had dirty sheets on them. They had clearly been slept in before and not changed. This was confirmed by the guy who had been in the room for a couple of days. The other girl in the room figured if she got drunk enough she wouldn't notice. The mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable. There are only 2 bathrooms for the entire hostel. The staff was fairly apathetic and uninterested. They advertised breakfast but there wasn't any the day I was there. There is a pool table, nice TV area and other cool common areas so it has the potential to be a decent place if someone were interested enough to put the effort into it.
