Although this hostel is in a great location I would not recommend it to anyone - the rooms smell horribly like grease and toilet and even opening the windows the entire day will not help. Wifi does not work and the staff is ok but nothing more. I would recommend this only if you are on a very very tight budget and have a broken foot.
