Other better-looking hostels around the area were full so we settled for this. The price was decent. The lady at the counter warned us before we paid that there would be loud music, so no complaints there. Actually it was quite fun to listen to the cover-songs and they only lasted till just before midnight. We had no issues sleeping through it, but if you're a light sleeper... think twice about staying here
We stayed in a 6 bed dorm (with no other beds occupied). The room itself was fairly clean and looked ok. The hallways, staircases and bathrooms however weren't great. A cockroach ran away from me in the hallway, an alarm kept going off in the stairway, water was dripping everywhere (it rained quite a bit for 2-3 days) and there was a nasty smell in that same stairway you had to get through to get out of the guesthouse. No lockers so we kept our valuables with reception (nice ladies).
Breakfast is white toast with peanutbutter, butter or jam and a cup of tea/coffee. The location is good, right in the middle of bars, restaurants, etc
We were looking for cheap, found it and therefore don't complain too much (and give a 3 star rating), but it definitely wasn't great
