Worst hostel ever, I wouldn't ever stay there again even if they paid me to stay there. Bedroom was filthy and the bed looked dirty, they give you one sheet that is see through. Bathroom / toilet was disgusting. One bathroom light didn't work and the other toilet had crap in the toilet which is where you had to shower. No toliet paper provided and the toilet paper bin (cos you cant flush your toilet paper down the toilet) is outside the door. Mirrors were filthy to the point were you couldn't see yourself. We were there for 15 minutes and went to ask for our money back. The lady said no because she had turned people away who wanted to stay there (crap!!). So we asked for an extra sheet to sleep on and went to bed with insect repellent all over our bodies. Luckily we managed to get out without catching any diseases!!

for 10 euros you get a bunk and nothing more. all the bathrooms smell of urine and no toilet paper was provided. i was given a room where it must have been neglected for a long time because there were lots of dead bugs on the bare mattresses and felt moldy. i quickly departed and sacrificed my payment and the man at the desk didn't even bother to ask me for the reason.

Have just booked ourselves in for the night and can't believe i spent 10 euros for the privelage.Sharing (no choice) with a crazy old women who wouldn't let us turn on light (it was 6 pm) The dorm itself is filthy (in fact the whole place is) and consists of several iron bunkbeds (no linen/pillows etc) The showers (so called) have no locks,curtain etc, basically a hole in ground and a shower head. Apparantly a restaurant but is always closed, would not eat there anyway, again filthy. And most worringly it is completly unsecure, no keys, no privacy and door open all night. Do yourself a favour pay the extra 5-10 euros and go to a hotel.
