1. The feeling of unsafe, because the bunks stairs are way to stiff, 2. only a curtains thay doesn't close properly no privacy 3. bunk beds that very close to each other, curtains are the only partitions 4. Mixed hostel, either way not too safe if you are a female guests 5. Hallways too narrow 6. Guests lounge/dining doesn't look clean and can only fit 4 people 7. Bathroom ony 2 in total, not very inviting to do your nature business 8. Outside premises, is a turned off cigarette butt and some rubbish littered 9. Not recommended for a female guests

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Amenities
The pictures made it look like separate rooms. So, when we ordered a "quad room", we expected a room for 4 people. This was the case, but it was really a huge room with bedsheets separating the "quad rooms" from each other. A bit pricey for what it was. Location was good. Breakfast was a joke. Toast (and the 2nd morning there wasn't even toast, just butter and jam).

If the Army discovered that one of its barracks was this run down, they would condemn it and burn it down to prevent the spread of bugs.
