very old hostel, the lighting at the corridor was terrible and sometimes was not sensible to be on. also, the street from the metro to the hostel was so quiet at night. there is no gymnasium but was mention in the description. no kettle, needed to buy water from convenience store. wont stay again.

Very "special".
My son and I arrived at 7:30pm (or so) tired from a long trip. I was informed right away that they only took cash. I had to find an ATM in the area to get the money and pay in advance. My boy is a 23 year old 6'2 chap, 180 lbs. and at 5'9 and 165 lbs., I'm not small either. Well, they gave us a small room with one bed (possibly a "troll" size). We put up with it thinking that we'd be gone soon. The bathroom was laid out very poorly and we had no room to disrobe or change. The shower head was busted. To our surprise, no shampoo or soap was included in the price. The AC could hardly cool down the room at night. The so-called "special" price we paid turned out to be special "sucker"!
