Could’ve been closer to the city centre and have better cleanliness particularly in the bathrooms and rooms.

dead Fly stuck on the wall, dust on floor and furniture, waste in drawer, blankets with icky stains and holes, mold stains on wall and shower curtain, smeard bath shelf and walls; area around hostel is very filthy, a lot of urine on the pavement; security door needed to be opend from outside after knocking in the middle of the night (locked or defect? nevertheless, this is the only exit even in the case of emergency!); staff friendly; beds very low above the floor; shower head defect (hardly any water); a lot of disposable cutlery, plates and cups; a lot of things needed to be paid in cash
