They had staff that came in to clean and make your bed daily. The bathrooms were pretty nice. They have a decent sized kitchen so that backpackers can make and store food. I met several lovely ladies while staying there. Easy access to buses and not far from the train. The only down side was there were not enough outlets... More

I like it because it's female only. You'll meet many girls traveling alone and can meet friends this way. It's very clean and safe. Easy checkin and checkout. Location is close to the train station (10 min walk). Only downsides are my keys didn't work very well and room 1 I stayed in was noisy at night.

It was the first time all by myself in a hostel and I was a bit worried for what I was facing but the hostel was perfect. The workers are very nice and professional. The hostel is very clean and there is a small common area and kitchen but it wasn't any inconvenience. I think they should try to improve... More

It felt a bit like a flat where the kitchen/ living room is shared with other girls. in the kitchen, there are fridge, microwave and kettle thus you can cook you own meal if you have to. there are few bedrooms in the...

I stayed here for 6 nights in late March. Really excellent location, right near termini so you can just jump on the train to all the main tourist locations, OR walk everywhere like I did. You are given a map when you check-in which is nice, however the staff weren't very nice or helpful. I was travelling with a friend,... More

The hostel itself is small but it has 3 bathrooms and like 4 rooms, so you really feel like you are sharing flat with other girls. The kitchen is small but it has the necessary like fridges and microwave. The only thing missing is cuttlery!! please get... More

I stayed here for one night prior to going on a cruise. I booked it due to the price, and its close location to the metro. Check in was across the street, I felt the woman working the desk was slightly rude, but it didn't bother me. I got a free map from there, and she then took me and... More

I would recommend this if you are solo and want to be safe. It definitely is safe and about a 5-10 min walk from the train station. It is also near many restaurants and every morning they have a market outside on the street with clothes, fresh produce. The hostel is great for interacting with other travellers as well. I... More

I stayed here in June with a friend while on a month long trip around Europe. The facilities were excellent: free wifi, and two desktop computers also connected to the internet that were free to use; a kitchen, which lacked a proper oven but had everything else you could possibly need; the bathrooms were clean and very nice; there were...
