This place was average. Great location. The private room was ok and did the job however you were overlooked by other windows so you would have to shut the curtains to get ready. Also the curtains were not big enough so they did not cover the whole window! Very annoying!
The main problem was the staff- they were so rude that we hated being in the hostel. The only nice people were the manager, the cleaners and kitchen staff and the door man. The staff at reception were the rudest people we had met our whole trip (we'd been travelling for 3 months!). They were always on the computer and didn't even lift their head to acknowledge you when you walked past. They were not helpful when you asked questions and made you feel as if you were bothering them. On many occasions if the phone rang when you were speaking to them, they would ignore you and take the telephone call!
We would not recommend this place to anyone travelling and looking for a friendly and fun hostel. There were no activities either and they were not helpful in telling us what was going on in the area. We found out the local activities by talking to locals and using the internet.
Don't go here, there are nicer friendly and more helpful hostels next door!!
