This is a Trusted Review. Why?
THIS IS NOT A HOSTEL!
This accommodation is simply a first floor residential apartment that has been filled with bunk beds. There is not even a reception desk! A strange man meets you outside the address and gives you keys/codes that lead directly into the apartment.
It is a 3 bedroom/person apartment with a living room, kitchen and one bathroom/shower that has to be shared between more than 10 people.
Although well-located, I advise strongly against staying here. The entire setup is unprofessional, and almost certainly illegal.
