Negative Reviews

Too Much Noise

According to reviews, this is a very noisy hostel for several reasons. First, guests say it is located near a busy road, where traffic doesn't calm down until after midnight. Guests also noticed the walls don't offer much soundproofing as they do not reach the ceiling. In addition, travellers noted that when there's live music on, it often lasts until quite late.

Lack of Onsite Service

Guests found it a bit inconvenient that hostel does not always have staff onsite. According to reviews, the owners are often not present in the mornings and in the evenings.

Dusty Dorms

Most guests found the rooms to be a bit dirty and thought that cleaning could generally improve throughout the property.
