we stayed at sheilas hostel for 4 nights and found the experience to be exactly as we thought,nothing fancy,just someplace to sleep and use as a base camp. The hostel was clean,tidy and there was very little noise after 11-30. The staff at reception were great as well.Hope this helps others

We had the room number 113 - if you go to this hostel, be sure to avoid that room! No window, minuscule, in the middle of the building (noisy), ... For the rest the hostel was not great, nor good - it was just poor. The breakfast is NOT worth it and totally overpriced for what you get. Look a... More

Our family stayed here on Aug 16 and did not get any sleep. Other hostelers were loud at 1230 a.m. so I complained to staff. 20 min later, it was still loud and had to complain again. It was ok only until 3:00 a.m. when partygoers were singing, banging on doors, and talking very loudly with no regard for people... More

The checkin lady was helpful and provided a great map. The rooms were quite cramped and hot but that's not uncommon in hostels. There's wifi in all rooms which is nice. However 2 girls were put in our room at 2:30 am and one was sick--not the best situation to wake up to in the middle of the night. I... More

Everything was basic, clean bed for the night, safe property, room was fine, keycards didn't work first time so had to run back down 3 floors to get new ones, the bathrooms were fine, again basic, but done the job. For 25€ each for 6 of us, we got 3 twin private rooms which was ok considering I never use... More

It has a good localization (although it is on a very tilted road), near to the city center, train and bus stations. That's all I can say as positive. Walls seems to be made of paper. Anyone making noise in the hostel seems to be inside your room. Terrible option if you want to sleep. Showers aren't enough. And if... More

The hostel has a good location. It is not in the centre but just a 5 minutes walk away. The kitchen was large and there a nice common rooms. The room was very small for 6 persons and at the night the hostel was very loud, therefore only 3 points.

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and paid 46 € per night for "double room". Double room was a small room with bunk bad and the bottom bed is bigger one. The facilities are poor, kitchen is dirty and nothing is complimentary when you want to cook for yourself (salt, oil, absolutely anything). Breakfast is not incuded in... More

I certainly had a great time with the people staying here, as most hostel experiences I've had. That said, I found the personnel, in particular two of them, quite rude and disrespectful. They know who they are, and you will know who they are as well. If they don't don't like their job, welcomming people from around the globe and... More
