  • Bathrooms were terrible, had a mouldy smell. No kitchen to use, no bedroom doors and general staff attitude was they didnt wanna be there.

  • Me and the three friends I stayed were all covered in bites after a night's sleep at the hostel, which suggests there were bed bugs. The room was pretty shabby - bleach stains on the floor, etc - and the bathroom door not only didn't lock but didn't even shut. Not nice. The system of apparently having to hand in your key every time we left the hostel was really weird, and we ended up just taking it out with us and skipping the reception desk.

  • This place was terrible. Although lockers were promised, none were available. As a result, we took our bags with us when we went out and subsequently got robbed. The staff was incredibly insensitive about this and rudely refused to help us - kicking us out of common space and forcing us to make international calls (over terrible Wifi) to the embassy, etc. Literally felt unsafe and incredibly uncomfortable knowing that the staff were about. Don't stay at this hostel.
