  • The place is a bit messy and not clean. The rooms are not spacious, the matress uncomfortable. I had old blood stains on my matress cover. The staff didn't even want to hear of it, they did not accept well criticism.

  • I don't recommend this hostel especially 6 dorm bed room. There is a very little space and I shared room with 3 guys who aren't travelers, but they live in the room permanently. They were very unsympathetic and I had to care about my stuff everytime. In addition, the wifi is free but you get voucher only for two hours and after two hours you must ask for another one, but It is impossible to receive new one after 8pm, because nobody is at the reception.

  • Great location. Reasonable facilities. No wifi as promised "in every room". They claimed to be working on it but really in the 21st century this is an essential core service that they should be offering.
