No internet ”

They totally lie about the internet. The main reason I went there is becssue they say they have free internet but it’s only enough to listen to one song and it’s gone. Very deceiving. I paid so much in internet it was NOT worth it.. it also smells bad

I stayed just 1 night in this hostel. Good hostel, very friendly. Nice kitchen with free coffee, sugar, tea and pancakes in the morning. All is pretty clean. I was in a 4 female beds dorm. Big room with lots of facilities. Inconvenients : the noise from the street at night and no air-con so could be hot in summer days. Good value
