Negative Reviews

The Heating Situation Can be Confusing

The biggest complaint guests have had about this hostel is that the heating situation confused them. Heaters for the bedrooms are only distributed by request because the staff instructs each guest on how to use them for safety purposes. Many guests were cold during their stay because they didn't realise that heaters were available.

Some Guest Rooms Are Far from the Bathrooms

Several guests said that they didn't like having to walk so far from their bedrooms to get to the bathroom, especially at night when they were trying to be quiet and not wake other guests.

The Hostel Can be Quite Crowded

Many guests mentioned that they couldn't comfortably use the hostel's kitchen or other amenities because they were already in use. They said that the common areas can be quite crowded at times, which was a bit annoying.
