Liked: The location.

Disliked: The extremely cramped tiny room. This property probably has more in common with a homeless shelter than a hostel.

Liked: The location is very good. Wifi is very good but it can drop out sometimes. 6 floors with a elevator. Daily maid service. Hot showers but the water pressure could be a little better. Price for a 4 bed room is very good but can change from week to week.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Nothing at all. It's completely shit.

Disliked: Stay away from this hostel!I booked one night nefore I checked Tripadvisor and Yelp. Do yourself a favor and pay an extra 10 bucks and spend your night in a much better place, it's worth it. The staff is completely uninterested in helping or even smiling. Instead they look at you with empty eyes chewing on a piece of gum while whispering shit over the desk. The face that the staff couldnt find my booking at first got them to accuse me, I had probably done something wrong. Luckily? For me, they found it. The lobby seems fine bjt as soon as you step into the elevator the hostel reveals itself. Dirty snd stained carpets cover the floors in the hallways. The showers are dirty as if they wouldn't been cleaned in weeks. You don't want to put your bare feet on the ground. The room itself is extremely small. The brown carpet, the tiny old bunkbeds and the stained walls make you wanna cry. If you reach out your hand while in you bed, you reach the other bed beside you, so you sleep very close to the other travelers, that is how small the room is. I've stayed in shitty hostels before and this is by far the worst one.
