I wish I paid more attention to trip advisor reviews on this place. I can not even begin to tell you how terrible this place is, in fact I already submitted a review and trip advisor did not publish it, so here is a very toned down version. Its DISGUSTING, DIRTY, SMELLY, I think you get the picture..... We had...

Pretty much just gotta echo what everyone else said - probably the worst hostel I've stayed in in a Western Country. WiFi is pretty much non-existant, rooms are dirty, with sheets clearly not washed between customers, near impossible to get a fork or cup in the kitchen, and music comes up from bar below so loud that you simply can't...

I've been here just a few hours and I already feel it's the worst choice I've could ever make... It's an horrible place... I think they have stole my money paying 25$ per night in this horrible place! The share room with 10 people it's super small and claustrophobic. I can here the karaoke that they have in the bar...

My feedback would be 2,5 stars. We booked a double room with bunk beds, the room was enough clean . Toilette could be clean better, but acceptable. The housekeeper was kind. Walls and doors were not thick,so we heard a lot of noise . Breakfast was so low. Normal price, around 30$/nigt each

Worse hostel I have ever stayed in. As I'm typing this review my friend found glass on the carpet. Within 30 minutes of our stay we saw 4 cockroaches crawling on the walls. All taps and showers are constantly running with horrible pressure. Cleaning is not priority.

The worst hostel I have stayed in ever .I have left this morning with a body covered in bed bug / flea bits. They have become so bad it's been suggested by the pharmacist I seek urgent hospital medical attention.

This hostel was beyond a joke! The bedding was filthy and there was a hole in the floor. There was a fridge in the room which hadn't been plugged in for months or cleaner and stank! There was bloodstains and drool marks on the pillows and there was obvious body fluids on the mattress including blood! My mattress was an...

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, it was filthy, run down and noisy! The kitchen was unhygienic, dated and disgusting with a rude little old lady bossing people about, there were cockroaches on the ceiling of the bathroom, the shower didn't stop dripping, the door locks didn't work and were falling off. The carpets were threadbare and the furniture...

I can't fault the staff at this hotel at all. They were very helpful and accommodating to us during our stay. The rooms are very basic but to be fair are clean. Couldn't really say the same for the bathroom unfortunately. The main issue is the noise from the bar below, the noise of the band coming through the floor...
