Disliked: Awful staff! Dirty and smelly! Its like you would try to sleep in a smoking room!Booked a female room got a male room! As I tried to explain that its not what I booked they said I am a 'Dramaqueen' and 'a bed is a bed' and I should be 'old enough' to 'understand how booking systems work'!

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: I liked the fact that we left.

Disliked: The staff were extremely rude and unwelcoming. Not helpful, in fact told us off for having a late check in, even though we had pre-arranged it via hostel bookers. The kitchen was small and disgusting. Not enough washing up facilities. Would not recommend this hostel to a homeless person.

Liked: The atmosphere was quite nice. At night everybody's staying at the lounge talking and drinking. Showers are okay, rooms aren't that noisy, beds are okay as well.

Disliked: You have to pay for wifi. no air conditioning, so it gets very hot sometimes. No free lockers.
