The hostel is located in a rather confusing area; you have to go through the entrance of a neighboring building to find a rather sketchy alleyway that leads to the actual hostel. Some strange smells going on as you walk up the stairs. The staff are helpful, but again I would say the main problem of this hostel lies in it’s lack of cleanliness. The lobby has shoe marks all over, the 3-story bunk beds are not only old but dangerous, and oh god the showers were disgusting. Not only did the shower mouths have mold-like substances growing, but all hot water doesn’t work; a big problem if your visit is during the winter season. Your room is readied with individual lockers, and you can also store your luggage in a secure storage room upon request, so security is guaranteed. However, be careful if you’re assigned room #1; I believe it had a broken window that didn’t close properly, so expect a chilly night. It’s a walk from the station, but the area has a lot of shops and restaurants so all-in-all I’d give 2/5 stars for this place.

Fairly good hostel, for the price of it it’s very good. The staff were nice, the breakfast wasn’t great but what do you expect, it filled you up and if you’re trying to travel cheap then it’s fine. Beds are reasonably comfortable and it’s pretty clean, the only issue was the showers were sometimes cold, but that’s no biggie

I stayed here for 2 nights in February 2018 as a solo traveller. The girl at reception who checked me in was lovely, showed me to the room and gave me lots of information about it and the local area.

As you walk into the hostel though, I thought I'd made a mistake staying there because of the courtyard and stairway up to the hostel smelling really bad - but the actual hostel itself is fine. Once you open the door you can't smell it anymore so it's not a problem. I stayed in the 9-bed dorm, which was quite small but everyone had their own locker and plug socket to charge their phone so no issues.

Breakfast is included in the price so can't complain, cereal, toast, tea, coffee, orange juice - basic but what you expect in a hostel. The atmosphere is really sociable and on my second night, everyone sat around watching the football.

Don't expect much for the price you pay and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: Don't expect much and you'll be pleasantly surprised
