2/10 Poor

The hostel website and door poster stated that reception would be open from 8am but no one was there until 2pm. Bathrooms were dirty with flies and poo. We were told that we had to check out of our room at 10am but that reception wouldn't be open until 11am. When we asked what we should do for that hour, we were told to wait for them to show up. Worst service ever received at a hostel.

2/10 Poor

On arrival there was a guy asleep in the lobby on the floor that needed to be stepped over to get in, the room itself was filthy, bedsheets were stained and grimy, the window in the room wouldn’t close, and there was no staff on hand or reachable to address any of these issues.

Someone asked me why I wave2 as he passed. He seemingly wants to do what he thought was an act to embarrass him, onto others. Apologies, but I do have allergies and have been to specialists

4/10 Fair

I knew I'd be arriving after diner, but couldn't get through to anyone beforehand which was a bit nerve-racking. Turns out there was someone there after all who let me in, but then there were no sheets on the bed...the concierge fixed that up for me (poly-cotton, but clean). No towels though. Oh and the instructions included a request to strip the bed in the morning. Yeah right! So: good price, but a bit touch and go service wise.
