Stay away from there. Its awful place. Everybody using common toilets and showers. Dirty place. Good place for sickness. No proper curtain on the window. No air conditioner. No fresh place. Waste of money...

You need to know that the shower and the toilets are NOT private as it may understood from the pics and the concise text, they are public, and in each floor. That is my only problem with this hostel. And it was a surprise, because i didn't get it when i booked a double bed room. Besides that, the stuff was SO nice and welcoming, they clean all the time so even if the toilet and the public area become unpleasant, it is very quickly being fixed, and they make sure that people will be quiet and consider others in the evenings. The location is superb. The guy that work their most of the day's hours is Shadmal, a beautiful soul, very kind and friendly. He made the entire experience into a pure pleasure.

4/10 Fair

I had booked the property via different website but the review would be same. To start with I had booked a single room. Instead when I arrived they gave me an entire dorm room for myself. So I had to share bathroom and toilet with others. The building is old, which is okay but not enough is made to keep it clean. Bed sheets were dirty. The toilet was dirty. Shower had water clogging. Not enough pressure on taps etc. And just one bathroom and toilet for 3 or 4 dorm rooms. Which is 12 or 16 people. I would recommend this place only if you have no other option.
