Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two night 23rd-25th may in a private room. We booked in as we seen that it was rather cheep...
When were early so left our cases with the hostel and came back to check in at 2:30. When we arrived to check in their was a note saying that we couldn't check in until 3:30 due to someone being sick. My boyfriend had an interview at 3:00 and needed his suit ironed so he ended up missing his interview (in the end up the hostel didn't have an iron anyways)
The room was absolutely disgusting, their was holes in the wall, the lock wasn't secure, we had to make our own bed, you couldn't even see the carpet it was that discussing, the room clearly hadn't been cleaned for years.
All the staff seemed to be backpackers which wasn't a problem but i didn't feel safe, who would you go to if their was a problem?
Their was noise from around 8pm - 2am. I could not sleep at all, screaming, shouting, music.
The washing facilities were crap.
This would be perfect if you are typical backpacker who wants to party and drink and meet lots of people but i wouldn't stay here if you want to basically work and sleep.
I think the only good thing about this place is the location, 5 minute walk to the city and 1 minute walk to the library (free wifi, great if your a backpacker)
You get what you pay for!
