2/10 Poor

Dirty, not great social aspect, no social area
Worst hostel I've ever stayed at. Bathrooms aplenty, but dirty. Loose hairs, mildew, mold aplenty. Lots of people that stay there permanently, my room had two guys that had taken over the whole room. Their clothes and shoes were all over the room. No lockers to use, no places to put your bags. They work at night so they sleep all day, you can never turn the light on and sort your stuff out. All forgivable except for the one thing: the room stank. It had that smell that stings and makes your eyes water. Because these guys never leave, the room seems to never get cleaning service. No social area besides the kitchen / dining room table. It'd be nice if there was a couch and TV like a living room. They should limit the stay of these people to a week. It's ridiculous that they make it like their home, and a disgusting home at that.
