Stayed here for four nights, the rooms aren’t cleaned unless someones leaving, towels cost money and the staff are rude. Only positive is the location but im sure the are better options closeby. Avoid

The 'party' Hostel isn't THAT crazy, mainly people getting drunk/drugged at the small rooftop terrace. There are a few Hostels nearby that might be Same Level and cheaper. +Location +Clean +Breakfast -Staff absolutely not interested
