Disliked: When I stayed at the hostel it was raining very hard and everything was flatted. In the bedroom the water came thought the walls and the floor was wet as well. The whole room was moister and you didn’t got anything dry. The bed smelt. I would not go to the hostel for a second time. The bathroom also was very disgusting it was so dirty and most the time there were not even toilet paper around.

Liked: Staff helpful & friendly. Location great for the price.

Disliked: No protection from the rain on the stairs so it gets slippery & makes the reception area flood so they use towells all over the floor. Makes the place look messier than it really is.

Liked: Super friendly staff and we were there in time for the 4th anniversary party on their roof top bar.

Disliked: A/C was quite weak and bathroom sink was quite dirty for a few days until the cleaner scraped off this black chunk of build up.
