Poor Cleanliness

Housekeeping could improve throughout the hostel, especially in the bathrooms, which often do not have a pleasant smell.

Come Prepared

The hostel does not provide towels, but does offer them for rent. However, no toiletries are offered. Guests suggest bringing your own supplies.

No Lift

Some of the rooms are located on the fourth floor and there is no elevator on site, so be prepared to hoof it on your own.
