  • Most horrible hostel I have ever been. My room was directly above the bar or night club. The bed was vibrating due to the bass and the loud music they played downstairs. At three, they stop playing music and I could finally fall asleep. Lucky me, I had to get up at four. :( Additionally, the hostel was hard to find. No sign above the hostel which guided me the way to the entrance. However, I quickly could check in and check out. The staff seemed to be nice and helpful.

  • It's hard to give a good review because the experience was so mixed. Half the staff was excellent, half was not helpful at all. We woke up at 3:30 AM to see several MICE in our room, sharing a box of french fries someone left on the floor. When we told the staff the guy just told us there were no more rooms, and that the mice wouldn't hurt us.. Thanks. A. Lot. After asking again we got a new room, but with even more people in it.. (We went from 10 to 12 beds room.)
