Liked: The location. Friendly staff.

Disliked: There are long term residents in the hostel. Kitchen is overcrowded. Unclean. Few toilets and one of it has no lights. One of the toilet is subjected to voyeurism as hostel room window are just one metre away at waist level. Unfortunately it is one of the worst hostel i have come across having travelled to many places around the world.

Liked: The character of the house. The room 3beds and the calm. I feel like at home.

Disliked: The cleanliness. Rooms are disgusting. I think rooms are never cleaned because when we arrived it smelt bad in our room. We founda wet towel under the bed and lots of dirty things which were there since a long time because it smelt so bad!!!!
