Failure to deliver
Terrible experience. Arrived 45 mins before check-in, so was told to come back for the key at check in time. I waited in the seating area for 45 mins then went to get my key. The receptionist saw me waiting in line for over half an hour and when I finally got to speak to her she told me there was no key for my room and to just go up. I got there and my bed hadn't been prepared from the last guest. I went back down and told the receptionist this, so she found me another room. I got to the new room and there were no sheets or towel. Went back down again. Was told that there were towels left and I will need to check back later. I needed to shower so managed without a towel. The window in the room didn't close properly (the room was very cold especially at night). Went to the bar for some lunch. Despite all of the posters advertising lunch the barman said they weren't doing any lunch, all they had was frozen pre-packaged soup which he could microwave. I was so hungry I had it as that was all there was. Went to use the laundry, a cleaner said that it would be available in 20 mins and to come back then. When I returned another cleaner was using the laundry, who told me to come back in 1 hour. The 1st cleaner was there and said nothing to the 2nd cleaner about me needing to use it. It appears that they have 1 washing machine for the whole hostel for guests and cleaners. This hostel has way too many guests for the infrastructure and needs more than one receptionist.

Basic stay
We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom facilities which was basic but fair for the price. The third bed was a bit too high to climb but again was ok for a teenager. The bathroom was further down and always busy so it would be good to have at least a sink in the room. The place is more like a student dormitory type than a hostel and the walls are paper-thin but for one night it was ok. The neighborhood was the main attraction as it is very central and easy to find. And staff was nice and very friendly. We did not try their breakfast but it seemed quite reasonably priced.
