    The room doesn't have enough outlets. Unclean and old hotel.

    The showers are crap. And the toilets aren’t really clean. But for a few nights only and for that price it’s completely alright to stay there and the nightmarket is underneath the hostel. It’s not noisy in there and the fridges have small lockers for every person, so no one can steal food from you. It’s not too bad, but nothing I would like to stay in for a month

    Quiet place. Thursday nights are the best time to come.
