    I booked for a private room and received confirmation and when I arrived they said they were fully booked. I had the money still taken from my account. I can’t find a contact number and would need a refund.

    Run-down hostel with potential to be amazing

    This hostel has so so so much potential to be the coolest hostel ever. Bright decorations, backyard patio area, friendly staff, and great location. The beds were decently comfortable, no complaints there. However the hostel is in disrepair - the paint is chipping, peeling, and in terrible condition (walls, floors, baseboards, etc). Some of the bathrooms are terribly ugly and need mending. One bathroom had weird black patches (mold?) on ceiling. I’m not asking for a fancy renovation - just saying that some money spent on paint, new carpet to fix all the ripped carpet (stairs and in room), and fix up the kitchen - it looks so grungy. None of these repairs seem out of reach. Would not stay again because it felt gross to be there. Sorry. Would give this hostel 10/10 otherwise but because of the weird state of things, I give it 3/10.

    Unique ?? That’s definitely not a word I would use - no one hardly speaks English - - $60 a night for a cell sized , dirty stained mattresses and my window is missing the top glass panel- so tape holds it together - the floors squeak really bad you feel like you’re going to fall through - not one light down the private room hallway - People were okay - it’s just way over due for a refurbishment !!! Good trying tho - looks better inside than out !
