    Hostel in renovation

    The hostel is presently under renovation. So quite many activities have stopped. Its quite quiet for the time being. I think after the renovation things will be better at the hostel.

    7 out of 10

    Location:between of two tram station-need to walk Room condition:very warm. Window couldn't close tightly. I saw staff changing bed linen and pillow cover, but she put bare pillow on the ground and dragged new linen on the ground. And GROUND WAS DIRTY. Washing facilities: not bad 4 toilets and not good shower booths. Among around 8~9 booths, only 3~4 worked. And I saw a MOUSE 🐁 Food: breakfast was really good dislike other backpackers. Pasta, vegies, etc provided for breaky. There was free dinner but I'm not sure everyday or just that day.

    Stayed 6 nights in Jul. 2018

    Backpacker in renovation

    I had a bed to sleep and there was a heater to keep me away from the cold. The hostel is under renovation right now and things are very quiet there. I hope they make this place a better backpackers place with accessible bathroom and serving breakfast as well.

    Worst hostel. Rats everywhere in common areas. Bad shower. Kitchen all broken. Very cold indoor. Not comfortable stay.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Definitely, the worst hostel I've ever been: so dirty, with many mices and cockroaches in the kitchen, toilettes dirty and broken, one rainy day I woke up and it was literally raining inside the room, from the ceiling, so my clothes and stuff were totally wet...Maybe that's why hostel is full of absolutely weird people

    Stayed 7 nights in Jun. 2018
