Worst hostel ever ”

1. Door looks don't work properly. 2. Very dirty. 3. You don't even get a normal towel. 4. No place in the room to store your stuff. I makes you feel unsafe. 5. Tiny rooms. 6. Only few toilets and showers, you will have to wait for ever. Also no area to put down your stuff and get ready withouts annoying other people. 7. In the kitchen hostel doesn't have simple stuff as pepper, salt and oil to use. 8. Everything old and run down, pool dirty. No lounge area besides the tables downstairs.
