The first time I came to this backpacker, I felt unwelcome. If you want to meet people, it's not here ! The girls bathroom is really dirty, same as for the kitchen but quite okay.
The first week, i was is a girl dorm which was "nice" but for the second time i was in a mixed dorm and it was a mess with stinky smell ! It was never cleaned in a week !!
The only good point is the location.
