Negative Reviews

Spotty Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is spotty and slow. Guests say that they needed to keep connecting to the net every five minutes, which was a bother and not much help to get any work done online.

Basic hostel

Guests find the hostel very basic. The bunk beds are old and creak when used. The beds are also shaky and not very comfortable. The bathrooms are not clean and guests say there is mildew all over the walls and floors. The shower area is small and not well lit.

No other issues reported

So far, no other recent negative opinion has been expressed by the guests about this hostel.
