2/10 Poor

Dirty, unsafe...
The place is dirty. No locks on the doors. The guys-staff come in and out You must pay for linen but that's just sheets and pillows. No duvet or something to cover yourself yet the staff, whom are men, can just come in and out

The rooms were boiling hot with only 1 fan in the centre which was useless. We could not sleep the whole night due to mosquitoes and heat.

6/10 Good

The people from the reception were nice, but there were only 2 bathrooms which were not clean and there was no air conditioning so the rooms were very hot. Still for the price it was ok.

2/10 Poor

Absolutely disgusting - avoid.
Two of us visited here together, and our stay was absolutely abysmal. There was no security at all - we were asked to pay extra for a dorm key and anyone could get buzzed in from the street. Disgusting bathroom with no paper, and extra fees at check-in for arbitrary things (e.g. We were made to pay €3.40 each for bedsheets, this only consisted of a bottom sheet and a pillow with pillow case, no duvet or sheet to sleep under at all). We have both developed bedbug bites overnight from our stay here. The plug sockets next to my bed were hanging off the wall with wiring exposed - I was concerned if I rolled over in the night I might get electrocuted! They also wanted a full copy of my card details at check in (which the receptionist took on his phone), despite having prepaid for everything.

Stay some where else
Room was not ready at 2 like promised. Room was ready around 5! Then i was charged double for my stay. No elevator so you have to carry your bags up a lot of stairs.

2/10 Poor

I had to book it at the last moment, and it cost me about 42€. I wouldn't mind if it was worth it, but I've been to much better hostels for about 15€. Of all the hostels I've been to in my life, this has got to be the worst. Bad hygiene, bathroom stinks, condescending reception service, and welcome. Had to literally count the seconds left to get out of the hostel as early as possible. Please stay away if you want to have a decent night of sleep

Spend the extra money else where!
Do not do it. The price is nice, but spend the extra any where else. Bed was very uncomfortable, with what looked like blood on the wall next to me. Bathrooms are decent when clean. The area was semi- unsafe. Worst hostel experience I’ve ever had. Staff is decent though. I am not one to be picky, but oh my.
