When we first arrived, we had trouble finding the hostel as it's down a small dodgy alleyway. When we finally found the right road, there were a few homeless people having various needles confiscated them by the police. Made a great first impression...
Despite there being a cleaner who came in daily, the kitchen and living area was still a mess and quite dirty. When we reached our room, it was the size of a small prison cell and was crammed with 3 bunk beds which were so creaky that one guy went out and bought WD40 to oil the joints. Turning over in your sleep would wake the whole room. There was little space to put bags, and all of the lockers were already taken so we had to sleep whilst hugging our valuables.
The shower rooms were adequate, but a bit dirty and small.
It's understandable that backpackers borrow a bit here and there from others, but someone took our entire bag of food despite it being labeled and in the fridge like instructed. It doesn't sound like the end of the world, but it really was at that point. I know that's probably not the hostel's fault, but maybe they should appoint a food security manager, I would sleep better at night knowing my peanut butter was in safe hands.
