well where do i start....booked 2 nights to stay here paid for the first night first because needed to go to the atm to get some more money out then when we paid for the next night she said we hadnt paid the first as we didnt have a reciept but we went straight to bed as soon as i gave her money so we didnt have one and out of all the hostels we have been to we have always paid the night we stay so we knew we had paid so in the end my girlfriend gave her the money again!
Its a weird setup the rooms open onto the living/dining/reception area and they had their kids there sleeping on the sofas during our stay which was awkward to say the least!
the morning of us leaving we woke up and got showered etc (showers and toilets are also onto the same big area so you can hear everything the other people do in the toilets if you catch my drift :-/ yuk) then made a tea while we packed our bags by this time it was 8.30AM and we asked where she had put the breakfast stuff (breakfast of toast and jam etc is included) was and she said extremly rudely breakfast was over?!?! so i got the bread and jam out the fridge anyway and we had our breakfast (that we ha paid for) and then my girlfriend went to make a cup of tea and she said she cant have a tea shes already had one so we said we would buy one to which she replied its not for sale!?!?! AVOID THIS HOSTEL AT ALL COSTS THERES LOADS IN THE SAME AREA WHERE WE MET PEOPLE THAT SAID THERES WAS NICE...its had no reviews for a couple of years for a reason its a joke of a place!!! be warned!!!
