Awfull Hostel Jul 18, 2013
The only good thing here is the location.

Kitchen had bugs, administration decided not to respond. Bathrooms are clean but not enough to cover the passenger demand, so peak hours are a mess.

Tobacco law is not respected here at night, so in mornings the place is a mess, filled with smoke and remanents of last nights party. If you complain about it, you will be asked to leave.

Lots of stuff was stolen from the kitchen common places due to lack of preventive safety measures and drunk people who in the munchies eat everything they can.

I made my complaints to several staff members who where not allowed to tell who the owner was until someone told me who he was, and to my shock and surprise one of the permanent party drunks was the owner, who kept smoking and strolling around the rooms flirting with random girls who clearly were unconfortable. He did not care at all and cancelled our reservations the next day and we where asked to leave. Worst of all, this person tried to pick a fight with us and he could barely stand on his feet, a real shame for being at his mid 40's.

worst stay in a long long time.

3 blocks north we found a street full of hostels, cheaper, more friendly and with a more serious focus on the customers.
