During our check-in, I was curious to find out if we were allowed to take the room key with us when we go out.... the receptionist went mental on the thought that we didn't want to leave the key at reception. The receptionist (who supposedly was the owner of the Star Hostel Franchise throughout Europe) started shouting, and threatened me... More

The reviews here are quite bad, but I was positively surprised. Booked this because it was cheap. Finding the entrance was very hard - it is only a small sticker on a big doorbell panel. No sign or anything.. Relatively roomy. The guy at the front desk was nice and informed us about bus lines and how to get here... More

After reading the comments below, me and my friends had been prepared for a horrifying experience. However, the accommodation was not bad at all, it is not luxurious but you should have realistic expectations given the price you pay. It was clean and we didn't have any problems. Breakfast is not rich (1 croissant per person + coffee, tea..) but... More

One of the receptionists was so pushy asking so many questions to see what disgusting things he could get just the first day I arrived that thanks to my intuition I did't return the majority of time I stayed there. I left before I had to and I don't recomend it at all. Better go to another place where people... More

The hostel was very clean, the staff were super helpful, bathroom was shared but not a problem. We left very early in the morning so didn't get breakfast but I understand it is basic. The kitchen was fine. For the price we paid it was great but I'm sure there are better hostels about if you are willing to pay... More

We stayed for one night and we couldn't sleep because it wasn't nice. The price is not that cheap for a hostel and the place is a mess . I would not recommend this hostel because you can find a hotel with better price and better place. They say that breakfast is included , only one croissant and a cup... More

The hostel is not warm at all. All is dirty especially the bathrooms. The only thing that they clean everyday is the bedroom. The kitchen is disgusting. The receptionnist is not really helpful and not welcoming. In one word, dont stay in that hostel.
