Do not be fooled by the photo!! The hotel entrance is a small door way between shops and leads up stairs to a reception area.
The room stank of stale cigarettes, the shared toilets were unclean, the whole place was very unpleasant. We returned to reception 5 minutes after checking in and handed back the key - the receptionist was very rude and would also not issue a refund. We left immediatley, £75 out of pocket....Avoid at all cost.
I would not recommend this sub-standard hostel to anyone.
