The bathrooms were incredibly dirty. The kitchen is tiny and most cupboards are for 'staff only.' A lot of people staying are work for accommodation people who are often rude and unfriendly. The wifi worked and beds were ok. They give free earplugs because it's very noisy outside. Overall, other hostels seem to offer a lot more for not much more in price.
