We arrived after hours. The door was locked (fair enough) There was a girl behind reception who could see us knocking on the door but made no effort to come and let us in.
We have booked a doulble room for a treat - some treat normally doubles are nice. The bed had not been changed and there were stains all over it. The room was so dirty and had the most horrible smell. I didnt want to touch anything to take anything out of my backpack.
Someone had another key for our room and let themselves in about 3.00am. So we were worried about going out and leaving all our stuff.
Breakfast was free - So what! anyone in their right mind would not want to eat there. The kitchen was really dirty.
I would have to say that this was the worst hostel I have ever stayed and I have been traveling for a year - If you stay there your nuts.
