I couldn't believe how much we had to pay for this dump. And that's what it ultimately is...a dump! We had a private room with a bunk bed and a sink (but no lockers). The sheets were covered in blood stains and white "unidentifiable" stains. The staff didn't even bother to tuck in the bed sheet on the side of... More

Not impressed by anything here. Disgusting rooms and facilities. The one bathroom for the floor was tiny, didn't even try to shower, room felt grimy. Breakfast=bread and PB. Staff=strange. Can't recommnd

The orfeo hostel really isn't terrible. Some of the reviews I had read had made me think that it was going to be a absolute hell hole. The rooms are very basic, literally just beds and a sink on a wall, you share the shower/washroom with all the others on your floor, yet I never waited for either, however this... More

We went 6 people and we paid like we were in a 5 stars hotel. And this hostel is just horrible. Dirty, the rooms are horrible and small, the breakfast is the worst i've ever eaten in a hostel and I've never paid so much for a 6 beds room in my life. I'm an experienced traveller and I can... More

Fairly standard hostel, nothing special get what you pay for. I didn't stay over a weekend though which I was told my other guests is ridiculously over priced for what it is. The free breakfast is just peanut butter, jam and some loafs of bread but there is a kitchen so maybe buy your own stuff. We stayed in a... More

Friendly staff and a nice comfy bed! All you need right? If you just want the standard somewhere to crash hostel this is the place to go! Everything was clean and tidy! It's only a few minutes walk from all the action and a great coffee shop easy times is only a two minute walk away! Good place
