After reading the reviews on here, we were regretting booking Wild Zebra! However when we got up to our double room, it was exactly what we'd hoped for. Clean, comfortable enough and quiet. The facilities like the showers are fine. Basic, but you get what you pay for and they do the job. We can't speak about what the dorms are like, but we were happy with our room. Definitely not glamorous or fancy, but cheap, central and fine.

It is one of the worse hostel I've stayed in. It feels like a massive old factory/dirty squat, very impersonal, old and smelly. The bunk beds are terrible: very creaky and wobbly. I haven't checked the kitchen or common areas because I wanted to spend as little time there as possible.

Booked a single room that was exactly that. A bed and a small cabinet. Wardrobes are bigger. Separate bathroom which is dated and paint falling off the roof, dirty. Terrible water pressure. VERY budget accommodation.

This has got to be the worst place I have ever stayed. So much so that we checked out early with no refund. I liked the fact they had toilet paper and soap in the toilets. After that I'm struggling to find anything positive.
The whole place stinks of stale body odour. Mainly of the foot variety. We could hardly breathe. There were notices/rules everywhere but little attention paid to them. Our room was covered in stains, bedclothes were filthy and the beds looked nothing like the photos. Springs were noisy and showers opened into the corridor with cold water.
Go anywhere else. Even sleep in a car in preference.
