Toast and cereal - pretty basic
The place was pretty unclean. The carpets are nasty, bathrooms nasty.
The staff was super friendly and willing to help
Not enough plugs for the phones in the rooms
Rooms were clean and had a refrigerator. The staff was very friendly at all times.
The bathrooms were not really clean from time to time. Furthermore it was kinda noisy in the night as this place seemed like a "party" Hostel. It was annoying to get down to the reception for every 1GB you wanted to use (Wi-Fi).
Everything. Very dirty. No breakfast in fact, only cornflakes.
The location was probably the only good thing about this facility. I read reviews that said the bathrooms were in poor shape, but we were there around a very busy time of year over New Years and I think they were kept in decent hostel living condition.
The staff never really seemed to know what was going on. When you would ask for help only about 1/3 of what you asked would get done it seemed. We paid for two key deposits but only got one key and had to ask for the second. He forgot to give us both the towels and the bedding when we had checked in and had to walk back down again to ask for it and it was apparently in the wash so we couldn’t get it for some time. When we checked in it was advertised online that there was ac and when we got to the room it was just a poorly working fan. It was incredibly hot and miserable in the rooms due to this and the windows were kept open all the time to try and make some kind of ventilation. The hostel was filled with very unusual people and the environment didn’t create any opening to talk to people which is generally why people like hostels is the opportunity to meet people. It just seemed this place attracted a very different crowd. The owner and family also seemed to be a bit odd as well. We had actually made a different reservation with an Airbnb and it was infested with cockroaches so we moved to this hostel in a last minute situation and when we told the owner about our previous place he mentioned he also had cockroaches as if it was a very usual thing and that people were strange for being worried about that even though they carry many diseases and parasites. When we left quickly the next day they almost seemed offended and asked us a lot of weird questions about our new living situation that felt way too invasive. They really fished for a good review but i just can’t provide one.
