The Hostel is OK. Nothing fancy, just a place for a sleep and storing your items. If you are going to get a shared room, " Which i do not like " make sure that you have a lock. Beds and pillows are not clean , I highly recommend to get your own bed sheet cover "it's better to be save than sorry". One more thing, they close the gate at 11:00 pm so be aware of that.
