Not a hostel for sleeping.
Posted Aug 21, 2012 on Hotels
The hostel was fairly clean, has a great location, free wifi and breakfast, so on paper it looks amazing. In reality this hostel is in a street full of bars and pubs, so sleep is very difficult. The in room shower was not working, but they had us use a different one. The air conditioning kept flipping the breaker/fuse, so was only on intermittently. There were not enough working lockers in the room, so I had no safe place to leave my passport and money. This hostel has decided that your sheets must be returned immediately, so if you have a roommate with an early departure time, they will have trouble leaving quietly. The most surprising thing about this hostel is how often guests need to change beds due to booking conflicts. Several of my roommates were moved in and out over the course of my stay, but on the last night, I was woken up in the middle of the night by this hostel moving two men into my female dorm. The only really amazing part of this hostel were some of its staff. They were all nice, and very helpful. I had some nice chats with a couple of them, and they were very friendly.
