      Leaves a Lot to be Desired

      For location it would be hard to beat. And it did seem pretty clean considering it's rather run-down condition overall. Otherwise, it leaves a lot to be desired for a hostel --- the very minimal offerings for breakfast, no in-room security for belongings, few if any hooks where needed for hanging clothes, toilets that do not fully flush at times, automatic lighting that tends to go out at the most inconvenient times, no laundry facilities, no WIFI in rooms, no towels unless you pay ridiculous extra price, no paper towels for drying hands in bathrooms or elsewhere, etc.

      Stayed 4 nights in Mar 2020

      4/5 Good

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

      The hotel is dated but clean and value for money.
