TLDR: look for a another option. If their policy let us check out early and refund the remaining days we would have - and it was still a near thing.
The good: it’s cheap, you’ve got your own bathroom, there’s wifi, toast and jam, your pretty close to bus and train stations and they let you to check in late even if through a flawed process (see “worst” below).
The bad: It says there’s a partial reception - we were there 5 nights and we never saw anyone despite coming and going at varying times. It’s in a sketchy looking neighborhood. The hostel and rooms are also very run down and dirty looking. I’ve included pictures. In five nights, they did not change our sheets once despite appearing to (my bed was made once but a chocolate stain from the night before remained) and it was dusty under the bed.
The worst: They have a poor security policies. Due to some travel delays we didn’t arrive at the hostel till well after check in. We’d emailed them last minute to inform them of this possibility but hadn’t received a reply back before we took off - they sent us a response with the entry code for the front door but we couldn’t reply because we’d lost our Internet and it was nearly midnight before we got it back. Likely because they hadn’t received a response, the hostel decided to take a laminated card with my name on it with the ENTRY CODE in it and TAPED IT TO THE FRONT DOOR. And that card looked reused.
Needless to say, we kept our door bolted whenever we were there.
