The staff here aren't particularly friendly. The first thing they get you to do when you arrive is sign a long list of strict and unfair rules, such as no deodorant in the rooms. I personally am not a fan of small dorms, and all the dorm rooms here are for 3 to 4 people. The toilets aren't particularly clean, and the place was very noisy into the early hours. They don't offer refunds, which was inconvenient for us as an hour after asking to stay an extra night, a relative offered us to stay at their place however the hostel refused to refund, or even give a discount. The breakfast is literally a loaf of bread and some cereals in a container which you make yourself. The common room is dirty. The wifi is good though and I enjoyed the individual artwork on each room door. Very average in my opinion.
