The only good thing about this placer was the helpful staff. Other than that, what people have complained in other comments is true. Mattresses are so old you do feel the sprigs when you lay down. They don't have bedsheets, and the mattress cover is very old and feels dirty. For a room with seven beds, there was only one... More

We stayed in the four bedroom (no 9) with two bunk beds. The mattresses must be 20 years old and so worn that you could feel all the metal springs. The room was the floor over a bar = smokey and noisy. The price was 120 Euro a night, and we concluded it would be better to stay in a... More

I enjoyed my stay at Pension Goiko so much that I ended up extending it. The staff are really amazing and friendly- especially Steffi who seems to be the manager. She had a lot of really great information about the area and was always willing to do whatever to help make the stay better. I've seen some people complain about... More

Stayed in a 7 bed dorm, this hostel is just ok...not as great as I thought it would be. I guess it just didn't suit me the best. The kitchen is only open at 9:30am which I think is very late. There is no breakfast either. There is only one shared bathroom on the first floor, shower and toilet in... More

We stayed in a double room, which was comfortable and the shared bathroom was clean. Common area/kitchen wasn't very large and there wasn't much available for breakfast. Look out for the funky staircase aswell! But staff were friendly and the location is perfect!

Arriving straight from a 30hr journey left us with little room/energy to argue, but 154 Euros for a triple room with a shared bathroom is very expensive for any city! We had booked a quad share room with a private bathroom 2 months in advance (as we had expected a 4th person to possibly join us) and were very confused... More

Very good central location, good value and very good service from Estefania and the team. Was the perfect place to stay for a group of 18 and the tourist advice and local knowledge given by Estefania was incredibly useful.

Stefania was an absolutely wonderful hostess. She spent ages with us marking on the local map all the best places to eat and their specialties. She answered all our questions regarding the local history and culture and gave lots of advice and insight into places to visit. The Pension was spotlessly clean and all staff welcoming and friendly.
