Negative Reviews

Busy area can be tough for sleeping

According to guests, it's hard to relax with a good night's sleep here due to all the noise audible both day and night. The main sources of this noise seem to be a nearby club with music playing late into the night as well the heavy traffic on the road outside. Patrons express wishing the rooms were soundproofed.

Old rooms in need of care

Guests report that the rooms at this hostel are old and un-kept showing a need for some refurbishment. The desired updates and repairs reported include malfunctioning appliances, dated furnishings/decor, stained bedding, and poor water pressure in the showers.
