  • The staff and the other people who stayed in the hostel were really nice. But the cleanliness was really bad, the kitchen smelled and it was dirty, the bathrooms was disgusting with hair and dirt inte the shower and the sinks. And the hostel had over used the air-freshners to cover up the real smell. Not worth the money because of the bad location, 40 min by bus to city.

  • This place is great for drunk kids who don't understand manners. The kitchen and tv room were disgusting, and people were running around yelling way after midnight with no regard to others. Even a private room would have been loud. Also, don't listen to the front desk people when they say to take the #5 bus to and from the train station. They don't tell you that you will need to transfer to the #40, so just take that.

  • Staff at reception were very very nice and helpful. Nice atmosphere amongsth the backpackers. Their cleaning staff was a whole different story: closing the bathrooms and kitchen at breakfast and check-out time, coming into the room well before check-out time to start throwing around the duvets. One morning we were trying to pack at around half nine and the cleaner came in and started taking sheets off our beds while our stuff was still on them. One guy had his clothes thrown out by a cleaner.
