  • WHAT A *** HOLE!!!

    by

    This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in!!! the only positive is that it is slightly cheaper than the rest!! apart from that it does not have 1 redeeming feature. The rooms are not really rooms, its 1 floor partitioned into pig pen style bedrooms, the wooden walls do not touch the roof and you can hear everything from the rooms, and could climb over into someone elses room if u wanted to!! the showers r DISGUSTING!! no plugs in rooms, *** on the carpet, cleaners stole clothes from our room and wore them the next day (to be fair they did give them back when we asked for them)
    The common room/ Kitchen- HORRIFIC!! 3 camping stoves for the whole hostel with 3 of the 6 rings not working, 5 dolllars to hire a mug to drink, no forks, everything is so unbeleavely dirty you will not want to eat. Sofas torn, sweaty and filthy- cant comment on comfort as didnt dare to sit on on. 1 from 6 washers and dryers works. Was made check out a day early even though I paid for it as the receptionist made a mistake- came back to find before mention cleaners putting my stuff in bin liners, i can imagine a lot went into their room!!! so to sum up this place feels like living in hell, the staff are rude and theives and I would rather sleep on the street than ever stay 1 night in the rat pit ever again!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

    Unique Quality: NONE!!!!

  • CRAP!
