Not a nice area- girls in our group regularly got heckled and wolf whistled, high police presence, friend got pick pocketed. But... rooms arent too bad, if a little small, showers are fine although our first shower didnt drain so flooded our room, beds comfy enough if a little unsturdy and some bugs too on my pillow- decided not to...

There were bedbugs in our beds!! We had a lot of bits after a three night-stay there and at home we had to call the pest control (crop spraying) to clean our luggage (we paid 240 €). We talked to other guests who had the same problem and some of them had even more bits. Appart from that, we there... More

I have travelled quite a lot and have stayed in many hostels before. I am not picky AT ALL, but I have to say that this hostel is really the most disgusting hostel I have been to. I stayed in a room upstairs with 6 beds and a bathroom. Beds were broken and they produced loud noises at the slightest... More

We needed somewhere cheap to stay before leaving for our flight the next morning to Rome and I swear I wished I had of listened to the reviews.... Location: it was possibly the most sketchiest place I have EVER been in. There were gang like people outside that tried to chat you up as you walked,we saw a guy steal... More

This place was the most terrible place I have ever stayed at. I wish I went on trip advisor before I booked. My partner and I stayed in a 5 person room the first night and we were interrupted all night by people screaming running through the hall and banging on our door. They double booked that room on our... More

First of all the hostel was extremely dirty- however, I can usually deal with dirty, especially traveling on a budget but I draw the line when I wake up to the sounds of rats rustling around in the bags near my head. I didn't sleep for the rest of the night- I just laid awake waiting for the sun to... More

My friend and I booked this hostel because of the price. It was very cheap, which was one of the few positive things about the hostel. The rooms were dirty, as was the shower and toilet. The toilet didn't even have toilet paper. It was easy to find the hostel and the metro is just across the street, which was... More

had some very nice memories in this hostel although I was insecure all the time. The area around is scary specially at night but what nice is that you're close to the metro. The rooms are dirty, the shower is shared and also dirty. But what's nice is the smoking area outside there's a place to sit and meet other... More

I chose this hostel because of the price, but I regret it wholeheartedly. No security in the rooms, open to all, no lockers. Small cramped rooms with rickety old beds that are dirty and stained. Strange staff, often very creepy. I know guests aren't necessarily the hostels choice, but situations occurred there that I could have reported to the police... More
