Very clean, chilled hostel and very friendly
Everything like in description, staff super friendly and helpful
Air conditioner was too cold and not possible to turn off, no mirror in the shared bathroom, the door of our room looked a bit destroyed
Timer in the aircon. It gets really hot in there during the day
Everything. Blood stains on floor. Did not feel safe at all. Was meant to stay 3 nights but checked out after 1 and payed to stay some where else. I recommend not to stay here
Good vibes, clean, great friendly staff
