What travellers think...

Green rating



This hostel offers the basics. Nothing extra. The staff has limited English. There are NO extras like trips planned to the acrobats or opera. YOu have to do it all on your own, if you can. Also there is no food available, no morning coffee. You have to get food on you own outside on the streets, restaurants which is not a problem but also not necessarily convenient. No heat in the pool table area or TV area - so not conducive to gathering or meeting people.
