JUST DON'T - Your Belongings are no longer safe in here”
People will just enter dorms during the night (about 3 or 4 times a week) and get whatever they can. They will take your entire suitcase if possible.

Disappointing. Isn’t there any sanitary rules? ”
Beds are ok, with clean sheets. The staff is friendly and the free shuttle service to the airport kind of makes it up for the awful location, the neighborhood is terrible! The place looks old and dirty. Found coackroaches all ober the place, and an ipad went missing in the room. If you are staying here to save money, think it twice. Not advisable

DO NOT STAY HERE WHATEVER YOU DO.”
Where do I begin? We stayed as a group of 6 in a 20 person dorm, which at the time only had around 12 people in... On the first night, one of our groups bags got stolen, containing her passport and all her valuables. We went to the reception and the manager was so unsympathetic and said “You’re in a 20 person dorm, what do you expect?”...we asked to view the CCTV footage, but apparently it’s a live feed which doesn’t allow playback and they weren’t even sure if it worked?! I beg you not to stay in this place, the area is unsafe, you wouldn’t walk out at night. The place itself stank of weed all the time and I was offered to buy drugs numerous times. The place is filthy, the staff are rude and you couldn’t pay me to spend another night there! If you want a $10 room, you get a $10 service, do not do not do not stay in this accommodation, places like this deserve to be shut down.

Don’t rely on the shuttle service!!”
The hostel is near to the airport and has a free shuttle service, thats why I stayed here. But the shuttle didn’t vome for 1 hour! Although they say every 20 min! After waiting 1hour I ordered a last minute uber and had to pay 12$. Nearly missed my flight.

Disappointed and need refund”
When I went to the property they’re were asking for additional payment because I’m already 48 and they said the amount I paid is for yo to 30 years old only. It’s the first time I encountered this thing and because I don’t wanna pay extra, they didn’t checked me in. It’s the first time that this thing happened to me and since I think I’m a valued customer, I think you should refund me for this booking. Thanks

Very Disappointed”
I would never stay at this hotel. i booked this for my husband because of the price. Never did i ever thing that the staff would steel your belongings. My husband left his backpack, which was everything he had in there that he came with , with the staff and paid a dollar for storage. They take you belongings and suppose to put it in a locker for safe keeping. He paid the dollar, they never gave him a tag to start off with which they should have. When he got back in the evening to get his backpack. it was gone. If the staff were the ones that were taking it to keep it safe then it has to be them that would have stole it. The staff did not care at all it was stolen. Which proves again. Who took it.
