Horrorshock

The restrooms were dirty and just one shower for many people. Everything was small. And the toiletts...i dont wanna talk about that. It was horrible to stay there. The room was realy small. Only place for the bed. I dont know how the other rooms are but it was not good. For this money I had different better hostels. But it was quiet, because it is not close to the city.
