    Location fantastic Our room had no water and the staff sorted this quickly (the staff was the positive, not the lack of water)

    Where to start. The hostel looked nothing like the photos. First appearances... we walked straight into a construction site. The front was boarded up but no actual works seemed to take place inside. The room had no water, so we couldn’t use the shower for the first 24 hours - after flying in direct from London (25 hours of travelling!) luckily, this was sorted quickly. The carpets were filthy. The bathroom was also filthy. We found 3 bugs crawling around the room during our stay. Whilst 1 bug per day isn’t bad, I’m sure there’s some we didn’t see. There was only a lift from reception... not a problem I hear you say! Except reception was located up 3 flights of steep steps... The WiFi could only be used in reception and was weaker than your nans knees. The air con was full of dust, grime and other filth so we didn’t use it. All in all, this is the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in. My friends, who have always been anti-hostel and were supposed to be convinced by this trip, are now convinced I’m a total liar and that I lack good judgement of accommodation
