In need of updates

The hostel is in need of some updates when it comes to the common areas, furniture and bed linens. Guests state that everything is shabby and in need of fixing or replacing all together.

Beds are not that comfortable

According to recent visitor reviews, the beds at this hostel are not that comfortable and creak when guests move around or get up. This made it noisy for those in bunk beds with someone above them.

Not enough bathrooms

Guests found it hard to get ready for the day or shower at times due to the limited amount of bathrooms at this property.
