Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: The most disgusting hostel we've been to. Kitchen was dirty, bloodstains on sheets, pillows were stained yellow, water all over the kitchen floors, gum in all the sinks, 2 small pots for the whole hostel, the doors all have an opening at the top so you can hear everyone in the hallway. announcements on the PA system all the time. worst hostel by far.

Liked: Great cheap bar and restaurant

Disliked: The staff were rude and unfriendly, the bar downstairs was directly below the room I stayed in and therefore was blasting music into our sleeping quarters until 4am - if I had known that there was a club so close to the rooms we never would have stayed here. Furthermore, I was seriously injured when trying to close a window in the room - it had no safety latch and it fell directly onto my finger, which is now fractured. The staff had no interest in helping us with either issue and made no effort to compensate us.
