Nice place in general
The hostel is ok in general. The location is really good and the conditions are OK. I would've rage them higher but we sat a mouse in the common area so I can't. The staff is very slow and can make u go crazy. The rooms are in the upper floors and there is no elevator so be ready. Can't say it is bad but not worth its cost
