It was not so bad :) Rooms were clean, staff was friendly, small price. I spent there two nights and I can recommend that place just to go to sleep, take a shower and go to the centre, not to spending time there.

My friends and I stayed in this hostel for three days (2 nights) and had a number of terrible experiences. Primarily, the staff were as unhelpful as they possibly could be, with everything that we asked them. For example, incurring extra charges such as a deposit for keys, a payment for sheets which we didn't need and a city tax... More

The common room is small and uncomfortable and you have to walk up stairs to get to the room. The man that was working... More

Not only did we get charged for some city tax we weren't informed about previously, we were also charged a fee for clean sheets. However, the sheets were neither clean at the first place, nor were they changed during our stay. We got a room on the top floor, which was right under the roof, so getting out of bed... More

Do not stay at this hostel. First they charged us 2 eu a night for sheets that were not that clean in the first place. Then, the bathroom in our (11-bed) room was awful. There wasn't a taoilet seat and if you wanted to take a shower you had to bend down because the ceiling was too low. The lights... More
