  • I was overcharged by nearly $100, had to later ask for a refund. I found the staff unhelpful and rude, even though it was there mistake. There was no social atmosphere here at all, by far the worst hostel I have stayed at, and I have stayed in a LOT of hostels. Wi-Fi connection was terrible, it kept cutting out and when it did work it was very slow, it also only worked in certain areas. No iron, even though listed in facilities. Bar played loud music till 3am so you won't get much sleep either.

  • Excellent location and very easy to meet other travellers. Bar was closed during my stay. Also no blankets in the room, and was cold at night.

  • There was an A/C installed in my room (107) during my stay which made it impossible to close the window fully - that will be a problem during the winter since sometimes it was way too cold in the night, and I was there in May!
