“ only good for one night stay. ”

Rating: 1 Reviewed on January 19, 2020

Very dirty,Toilets, kitchen and room.. Just the good thing is staff are friendly.. But if you have different options, do not book here.. Or you can just stay for one night so you don't really need to...

“Wouldn't recommend ”

Me and my girlfriend booked this hostel for 5 nights based on the good reviews on booking.com. I must say the owner is very friendly and speaks good English however we did not have a good experience...

“Lugar mais nojento que estive ”

Só vá se você não tiver opção. Lugar mais insalubre que já estive. Banheiro sujo, privada quebrada, chuveiro gelado, camas quebradas e remendadas. Cogumelos nas paredes, fios soltos, janelas...
