Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Friendly guests here. Nice kitchen and free coffee/tea, toast and cereal each morning. Check-in was very strange: since I arrived around 8pm, the front door was closed, apparently you are supposed to schedule a check-in time, but the hostel never contacted me to do so. Luckily someone was exiting, so I managed to get inside. Comfortable beds. The main thing I disliked was that the bathroom, kitchen, and bedrooms are all one different floors, so I was constantly going up and down stairs.

Hostel is very clean, rooms are cleaned every day, staff are very friendly and helpful. Only issue is that the kitchen is very small.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The room I stayed was just a mess, it was really smelly when I opened the door, and beds around were messy and stuffed with dirty clothes and stuff(it seems like those ppl have been living there for decades) One of the guys insisted to open the door so his gf can come in/out easily, therefore the room was noisy and bright all night long....I didn’t complain since I was just staying for a night, but pretty sure I will not go back again. Staff were friendly tho...
