Convenient hostel about 10 min walk from the main station. We arrived late midnight and the staff was kind enough to check us in late. Clean hostel but lack of air ventilation in the room. We were just staying for a short night to catch up a train on the next day and it was value for money. Recommended for budget traveler.

1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
It’s in general quiet except when kids are there, I highly suggest the owner of hostel not let any kids age under 12 allow to stay there, pillow is such a small place n any noise can ruin n disturb all people inside. Can’t accept all the running n screaming, been wake 3 times a night cuz of that.
