Odd place. Well familiar with YHA hostels. This does not compare. Tiered, thin mattresses, stained and burnt, ThIn sheets and bedding and solid foam pillow. Cold and single light in dormitory left on all night. There residents more interested in night life. I was quite out of place for weekend exploring. Dormitories never locked so open to all. Checkout late for any person wanting to get on with the day. Cheap though so uncomfortable not worth the value.
