Where do we start.........
We stayed here for a total of 8 hours before leaving. The sign at the reception stated that if we checked out early there was no refund, obviously they are used to people leaving this horrible, disgusting excuse for accommodation.
a) The Area.
To set the scene, walking to the hostel we saw a couple having a domestic, the area around the hostel smelt of urine and as we walk up to the door we see a burnt out car. As we approach the door we had to excuse our way through two homeless people using the door way for warmth all while avoiding the syringes on the floor. The area was noisy and unsafe. We got told by a number of people after we left that this is not a safe neighbourhood. The homeless people around this area are more 'forceful' and angry when told no, one man told us this place was hell on Earth.
b) The Hostel
The hostel is horrendous. The rooms are cramped, there are only two showers for each floor. The toilets are disgusting, there was no toilet paper and there are more things growing than I could count. The showers were horrendous, I was cleaner not having a shower in them. Only one power point worked, there were no individual lights, the curtain didn't even cover the window properly. The window didn't even shut properly.
c) The Smell
I don't know what the smell was but it was everywhere in the hostel. It was in the rooms, the beds, the bathrooms. The place smelt as bad as it looked.
Seriously, we have stayed in hostels around the world and this has to be the worst place we have come across by far. It is like a half way hose, unsafe and unclean.
We get trying to save money but after you check out (don't get a refund) and find somewhere else you will end paying more anyway.
Just don't stay here!!!
