Don’t do it to yourself
The check in receptionist was not very polite or happy when I went to check in. The room had trash on the floor and the bed was dusty because the window was open. The bunk bed had no ladder( it had been removed). And some of the screws were coming out of the bed rails. I know the place can not control the people but the ladies in the room would yell at night and there was no posted lights out and they would keep the lights on talking until after 11:00pm. I checked out early and found a different hotel because it was so bad.

Nice and close to the train station and to other hostels so opportunities to meet other people. Could use some more bathrooms and possibly separate the toilets and showers
