Don't expect anything, but it's OK
I just wanted a one night sleep stay-over, not a problem. Got myself my own room (bathroom is shared) and that worked out fine. Yes, it's not super clean and yes, there is youth walking around drunk - but once in my room it was OK.

Fair2.0 / 5
Poor Management - Unclean
Check in was a mess, 2 desk guys didn't know what to do and questioned my payment multiple times even after showing them confirmation of payment and booking through print out and email. Bathrooms and bedrooms had stuff on the walls that could just have been wiped up and holes in the walls. Bed was comfortable and I wasn't expected anything flash as it is a back packers but overall management was utter crud.
