To be honest, this place should be called A-bore-a. Too many rules, to the extent you have a laminated piece of paper on your table that lists the rules to abide by in the dining room. No alcohol is a bit of a downer as well. Food is extremely sub standard. Table tennis and pool tables are extremely tatty. And... More

Someone got into my room and stole my stuffs. The receptionist desk asked the room service lady and then just said "no one enter my room". There is also NO surveillance camera in the hallway to ensure your safety so AVOID this place immediately.

The location is very good, close to metro station and the maginificent Labyrenth Park. Breakfast is ok. Lots of students around. Best price. Some problems with the plumbing but still comparatively a clean hotel.

To begin with the location is ideal, from the metro its about 10 minutes walk. The staff is well trained and very helpful. Its a really big hostel and has a feel of a students hostel. There is wifi in the anteroom area, which is also equipped with TT table, coffee machines (1 Euro/cup) etc. The rooms are basic, but... More

I went here on a school trip with over 40 pupils and the receptionist staff were immediately very polite and helpful. The communal area is fun with a table tennis table, a cinema area and table football. The gym is extremely well equipped. The metro station is a short walk from the accommodation and there is a lovely park right... More

This place was the venue of a summer camp for me, so my experience may not be the same as other travelers. If you're looking for budget accommodation, Agora is perfect. Although it may not be in the city center, one can enjoy the quiet and serenity around campus Mundet. You can always catch the metro from Mundet station and... More
