1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Clink78 is currently not operating as a hostel, it’s an office building. I showed up at night after my flight just to find out that there’s no hostel there. They moved me to Clink261, but it was dirty and not what I originally signed up for. You need to pay for towels that you don’t even get to keep.

Racially profiled at Clink 78.
This place is well located, big. clean, but it does have a racial profiling issue.You must beware of your belongings as the hostel, in my opinion, isn't safe. It is my understanding, giving the interactions I had with the Hostel personnel that they could not care less for your damaged personal belongings. As a result, I would not recommend this Hostel and this decision if final.
