Very bad, the pillow are smelly
Good for low budget hotel and strategic location.
It was fine. I only stayed for 2 nights. Don’t expect a variety as breakfast. It’s just toast with jam. But it’s nice and for free!
A strategic location but with limited car park. Overall, everything is satisfied
Bad mixing room need to separate males and females rooms
It was a short but sweet stay in this cozy place! I love the antique ambiance of the hostel. It's cheap, clean, and a very comfortable place to stay in.
It's comfortable and convenient, near the bus stop and has breakfast for you.
Cheap price, very nice inn for backpackers.
Clean hostel and the location is strategic.
Strategic location where is at nearby. Little India, bed sheet are not too clean and have dust, has some mosquito at room make me can't sleep well at night

Not taken care off
I didn't have a reserversation which made it pretty though for the guy. He tried to sell me a private room where a guy was in. Weird and inappropriate. I comsidered an expensive private rooms. Didnt want that and planning to leave. 5 minutes later the dorm was available... ain a 4 bed dorm there was only a girl. The shower was good (warm rainshower with pressure) but literally next to the toilet. Made everything wet. The doors domt close so well. Not all lights work. Often out of toilet paper. Breakfast was poor and coffee and tea terrible. The bed is hard and not really clean. There's a locker above your head in the bunkbed but is so small, only your phone and laptop/tablet will fit sideways. The plug is inside that locker. Room has AC. Luckely because without it's very smelly. Towell is given at the desk. Wifi is okay. Also in the room. Location also fine. Sitting outside is very close to a busy street. At least you can smoke there. Free water is provided.

An very interesting hostel
Red inn is a good hostel due to his perfect location : not far from bus station , about 10 min by taxi and also 2 min of walking from the currency exchange banks . In addition , the workers there are lovely and the rooms and hostels are very clean. To end , the hostel gives the ability to let the luggage there .

No recommendation !
We stayed two nights in a room with private bathroom in this property which is well-located. Even if the price is affordable [23 euros per night], the hotel didn't meet the basic hospitality expectations. For example: it was inexplicable to not find a towel rack in the room but to have a HUGE TV which occupied all the space on the desk ! Right after check-in, we went in our room: the bin was not empty containing garbages of previous guests and we had to request twice towels [these ones were finally dirty and full of holes]. Bathroom was not really clean, shower leaked all day long and the shower head was not working. Last but not least, water was not cold, but for sure not hot at all ! Main issue was the wifi which didn't work. One of the staff was stuck to the computer in the lobby, watching NBA games all day, using an Ethernet cable to consume the entire bandwidth of the property. No need to say the wifi connection was really poor...

Mixed bag
Plus side was that the room (101) was big and the bed was very comfortable. The TV also had movie box which was great after a day of exploring. Location was also great just by little India. The breakfast was a let down, I know at cheap but it's sliced bread and fruit, we skipped 2 out of 3 mornings as you can get great cheap food close by. We weren't offered towels for any of our stay. Staff were abrupt and didn't ask how we were or could they help just demanded payment rather rude. Didn't get the friendly vibe at all. From our room you could hear everything happening above. The floor was so thin we thought it was going to fall trough. Dust was falling into us when people stepped too heavily. The road outside was also really loud as the windows were onto shutter style. Not bad for the money by not 100% impressed.

Very good value for money
The hostel is located in the Old Town, right next to Little India. The facilities were clean and free breakfast was included in the price, there was also a lock up storage built in to the beds. Would stay again.
