I must start this by saying we did only pay around 60 dollars for a double room with a private bathroom, so please take that into account.
The staff were really nice so that's a plus.
The hostel was awful. The worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The reception area smelt like a overflown nightclub toilet. You have to wait about 5 minutes for the elevator to get the ground level and then it's like a chance of luck that you don't die in it. The room itself was really basic but the carpet grossed me out and so did the bed. I really felt like I was going to catch something in it. The bed itself was the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. It's worse than a prison bed. The private bathroom was not joined to the room, it was across the hallway and the door was pretty much just slats with a shower curtain over it.
The window has an aircon in it but the sounds from the street below travel right through it.
If you can afford an extra 20 bucks go somewhere else because is not even worth the cheapness of the room
