We knew what to expect before going to this hostel. There are a myriad of reviews around the internet detailing just what it is like. The entry staircase is too narrow and is exceptionally steep. The staircase going up to the other floors is even narrower and steeper. The rooms are fairly small, and the beds aren't long enough for... More

I 've been travelling to many hostels in Europe, and never had to pay more than 30 EUR, which the service and accomodation is really good as well. In this hostel u even can not pay with credit...

Although the service was good and informative and the wi-fi worked well, that is unfortunately where the positives end. The staircase is barely big enough to fit one person and is extremely steep and dangerous - no elevator! The 8 bed dorm that we stayed in was tiny and cramped without air conditioning. The beds were too small without railings... More

You could not even swing a cat in the room. The bathroom had no ventilation (no window/fan) the bathroom also came with a sewage smell that lurked into the... More

The manager was very rude with us, bad manners and lack of information. The breakfast is included in the price but you have to go to a neaby hotel in order to be served and when you arrive you see that it consists of only raw bread, peaut butter and coffer or tea. The rooms are ok, there is no... More
