At very first opinion, this hostel is awful.
There is a strong stench coming from the lobby, that after the first day I though would have gone away but it seemed to just get worse.
There are 2 lifts, though for the 6 nights I was there only 1 was working, a lot of waiting time just to get up and down.
The staff seemed friendly and helpful enough.
