    the location is great is a safe street , the staff are really helpful and friendly , generally the vibes there were good . i got the single room upstairs , it was ok considering i only needed a place to leave my bag and a bed . they helped me by having my luggage stored safely after i checked out. when i needed an adapter they let me have one from the reception and that was great .

    it was very loud at night from inside the hostel , so sleeping a bit early wasnot really an option . the room is smaller than expected and doesn't contain any temperature control , so on cold days the room is very very cold . the window had a not functioning part so it couldnot be shut fully and i found some insects few days later near the window.
