This place was a huge dissapointment. I know you get what you pay for but this was pants even for a budget hostel. The rooms are set out like university halls of residence with different flats. Each flat has a kitchen bathroom and shower and you share with the people staying in the other rooms. There are extra showers and toliets on each floor though. Our flat just smelt soo bad, after we left all our stuff smelt like the hostel despite us doing washing while we was their. It seemed thate everyone else in our flat was living their long term which made using the kitchen a bit awkward. Someone left a pair of rolled up boxers in the shower. The room was freezing, but the lady at reception did go out of her way to find us a heater but thats probably the only good thing i can say about he place. The washing mashined didnt wash our clothes properly and left detergent all over our clothes and the dryer didnt dry it properly either. The communal areas in the flat are cleaned as i saw the cleaner in their but we was their for 2 nights and the same pile of hair was in the bathroom the whole time we was their. The whole experience was just pretty grim.

If I could give zero I would. We left before the first night set in as it was so cold and dirty we couldn’t get comfortable.

Fridge and freezer are not sufficient. Just 1 freezer is among 16 people. You need to add the number of freezer and fridge.
