    Recommended for tight budget”

    If seeking for way cheaper accommodation, this is for you. Only problem noticed was the whole area smells food. Ive never been into their kitchen but it seems they dont have an exhaust fan there. After you take a shower, you will smell food even before you reach out of the door.

    Crap ”

    If you like paper thin wall and a cold draughty sleep with a rock hard bed this is the place for you . Right down to the guy vomiting four rooms down and owners that can't speak very good English I give it a -1 out of 10. The car would of been a better sleep with that no off street parking DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    Owner did not care when my shoes where stolen”

    The hostel is old, dirty and not well equipped. The dining room is for max. 10 people (if they squeeze themselves in). Internet connection is almost not working, After my shoes were stolen I got no support from owner. He did not even listen to me. I asked the owner (and earwittneses assured me of this later) whether I can use the phone in his office. When he saw me using it, he screamed at me wondering what I am doing in his office. Unfriendly, rude, not supportive owner. I will never go there again.
