Decent hostel, okay kitchen, could do with a few more bathrooms to be honest. The place is also extremely smokey (and I am a smoker!) due to people smoking outside the rooms in covered areas.

If you like smoking inside & the room being next to the common area which is very noisy you'll love this place. If you also love not being able to shut the window due to the heat which is the only method of blocking above mentioned, You'll really love this place. Don't stay here, horrible

We had to wake someone up who seemed unsure as to why we were at the door with bags... very odd. We even had a reservation. Upon arrival the bathrooms had clearly...
