Nice, basic hostel. It is very close to everything and within walking distance from the station. You do have to pay for linen, towels and a padlock, but this is made clear before you arrive and the money goes towards the after school club which is sweet. Wifi good, maps provided, staff very friendly and the hostel is clean. My... More

The hostel itself is in a good location, everything is within walking distance. The dorm room that we stayed in (15 bed mixed dorm? - the cheapest available) was horrendous. Unclean, dark, dingy and outdated. The beds had very old metal frames that were rusty and squeaky. In between these 'beds' were wobbly sheets of plywood creating 'privacy' for the... More

I stayed at this hostel 9 days while I was looking for a long-term accomodation in the city. The City Public Hostel is cheap and you understand that when you arrive. The price of the room doesn't include even a pillow or a blanket. There are several dorms, if you don't want to be with a lot of people, avoid... More

We stayed in a 12-bed dorm here. The staff was very friendly, but we were unpleasantly surprised by the cost of a lock and the costs of linen and a pillow. You are allowed to bring your own, but as we were staying in places where linen is provided for the rest of the trip we did not. The facilities... More

I don't know how much can you expect from the cheapest hostel in the city, but at least I would expect the pillow to be in the price of the bed. I have never been in a hostel (and I have been in MANY) where you had to rent a pillow. I think that was ridiculous. I somehow find it... More

I will admit the 66 bed dorm room could have been a lot worse. On the plus side, it was surprisingly quiet and there are lockers for every bed. The common areas are decent and the kitchen is well equipped. The front desk staff are also really nice. On the down side there aren't any outlets in the 66 bed... More

You have to pay for sheets and everything but you can bring your own if you want. Even though you're in a 32 person dorm, you have privacy and you can sleep quite well. The receptionist is really nice and gave us a lot of advice about what to do in the city. The kitchen is small and there's nothing... More

We picked beds in the 66 bed dorm room, both for price and interest! As it turned out the room was well designed to allow for relative privacy and was suitably air conditioned. Beds were some of the most comfortable I've slept on in any hostel. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were able to put our bags... More

Good location. The kitchen is very big a comfortable to cook and have dinner or lunch. I stayed 2 nights in the 66 beds dorm and it was very good. I think city public hostel is the cheapest hostel in the city.

Really big rooms (for 22 and 66! people). In our room (that with 22 beds) were just a few windows on the ceiling, so it was dark, also during the day. The bathroom on the first-floor was not so clean, but the toilets an the kitchen on the ground floor were quite modern, big and clean. The only problem for... More
