We wanted to stay there for 3 nights but packed our stuff after the first one. The rooms were very shabby and had a bad smell (old carpets...), the toilets not very clean and there was only 1 shower for two floors. It wasn't even that cheap. We found another hostel which was really nice and even less expensive.
