Terrific! Stay away from this hostel! The worst place I’ve ever been in my life. Awful, dirty, a chaos, don’t provide linens and towels, no outlets to connect and charge devices, staff is patetic.

4/10 Fair

Took me an hour standing around waiting to check in along with 3 other people. You book a private room with bathroom but bathroom isn’t in your room it’s on the outside in a shared space with another room so be mindful about that when booking & room and bathroom smelt like cigarettes even though we booked a non smoking room.
