Dirty hostel, not enough showers/toilets for number of guests. Kitchen is most of the time dirty and is way too small.+ half of oven doont work.
The staff is not respectful at all. They stole my 40$ deposit for no reason.
I wouldnt recommend this hostel to any1 unless you want to put fire in it
You hate to pay for coutellery and communal area is too small.
