the place is reminiscent of a crappy frat house with terrible cleanliness. the room we were put in was completely unclean with dirt all over the floors and other people's things spread all over the floor. Without exaggeration it was hard to see the floor. not to mention the fact that some of the rooms do not have locks and the main building is always unlocked. the use of drugs is rampant and in the open. this being said the owner is a racist and turns people away solely based on nationality, having refused people because they were from New Zealand. He also kicks people out just for not doing the dishes while keeping people who blatantly are doing illegal drugs in plain view. the owner can help you find work and if he does says that if you leave the hostel that you then lose your job. this is a lie. the only redeeming feature is that there are cats at the hostel. all in all the place is unclean and feels un-wholesome and unsafe.
