Good location

Not that bad as we booked a private double room with private bathroom. However the cleanliness of the room was not that good, the lobby of the hostel really stinks, it s dilapidated and would deserve a refreshing.. I haven t seen the dormitory but from the overall I ve seen, I would not recommend it if you look for something quiet and clean. Good location and cheap however..

The photo's on the site don't

The photo's on the site don't really paint an accurate picture. My room had a massive vomit stain. It smelt. little or no natural light. stains on my bed sheets. The toilet paper hurt. The lifts are nearly impossible to catch because the place is so crowded. Expect to be working 6-10 flights of stairs every time you come and go. For the price, the location is about all you are paying for.
