Negative Reviews

Staff often not on-site

There are consistent reports of staff not being on-site at this hostel for many hours a day. Reviews state that on arrival a guest must phone the hostel staff and then wait for someone to come and check them in. Guests find this inconvenient and would prefer to have staff members on-site more often.

Lack of utensils in kitchen

Despite having a communal kitchen to use, many guests state it is difficult to prepare food due to the lack of utensils supplied. Reviews suggest there are barely any dishes and also that the kitchen facilities are very old and in bad condition.

Very thin walls

Dozens of reviews point out the thin walls in the rooms at the hostel. Guests state they can hear everything from the neighbouring rooms and at times this has become irritating and disruptive to a good night's sleep. Guests recommend bringing earplugs for a stay at this property.
