We stayed in the private double room on the top floor and I've never seen a better room in a hostel before. Better than an expensive hotel and very reasonable priced. Room is huge and beautiful, lovely views and a mini balcony. Also has an en suite bathroom and limited kitchen facilities but you're across the hall from a modern... More

The abusive proprietor of this hostel abruptly canceled my reservation and kicked me out simply because I politely asked to pay for one night at a time. He didn't want to deal with me and just said "I'm canceling your reservation, you can go somewhere else." This strange, cramped hostel only has two large dorm rooms, with nothing else --... More

I stayed in a 20 bed mixed dorm with some of my friends. The rooms were clean and spacious. The layout of the rooms meant they were very social and you got to meet lots of people during your stay. There was good wifi in the rooms and plugs to charge your phones. The bathrooms were shared and basic and... More

The room itself (10 bed female dorm) was fine, one shared bathroom, great view, spacious and comfortable. However, the guy on reception was horrible. He charged one of our party £15 more than the rest of us and later when we checked out on the 8th of August he demanded we all pay an extra £15 each. When we refused,... More

The facilities in Aivengo were the worst out of all the hostels I stayed in on my holiday. There are only two showers downstairs, and from what I could see, these showers were for 40 people to use. There was a 'kitchen' right next to the toilets which consisted of only a refrigerator and a microwave. There were some small... More

The private double is absolutely the nicest room - hotel or hostel- I have stayed in in Europe. So cool! Other than check in/check out I had 0 interaction with staff. Location is unbeatable. Seriously, if you are traveling with your significant other/ a friend you don't mid sharing a bed with, get the private double!

I stayed here for 4 nights in early June and was thoroughly impressed. The rooms were clean and the view from our room was beautiful. The location is great. The hostel is situated right next to the main station and you can walk to most places or hire a bike. There are plenty of rental bike services on the street... More

I stayed in the 20 dorm room and had hesitations- but it was actually a lot better than I expected - especially for the price! There's 2 x 20 dorm rooms, and I'm pretty sure there are smaller dorms and female only dorms upstairs. The staff are really nice and I've met a lot of cool people here in the... More

I stayed in the 20 bed mixed dorm and it ended up being better than I expected. Pretty clean and comfortable. There is a bit of a shortage of showers for 20 ppl. Location is pretty good there is stuff to do/eat all over the place. Overall not a bad place to stay, especially due to the cheap prices they... More
