This looks very different when you come and see it. The toilets are not clear also the shower. There is no hot water. Service personal is not so kind and want to charge you something that you dint use like blankets. Dont come here. It is cheap but there is lot of places better then this for a same price.

Benedict hostel is situated just two minutes walk to city centre, so it's a perfect location for a hostel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with beds having their own lamps, which is very practical. The staff was very polite and helpful, for any information we needed. The spirit of this hostel lives through its common space (sitting room), because it's... More

I chose this hostel because of its super reviews and I was not disappointed. The staff were all friendly and helpful, they do offer free earplugs. Very... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were friendly and helpful. Absolutely excellent - only one minor quarm, and that was the breakfast but would highly recommend, had a lovely time.
