Great location, helpful staff. The bathroom could be cleaner, but nothing to worry about. the water is always hot too. All nights they offer some different party. They have everything a traveller might need.

We sincerely regret everything that happened during your stay our check in is at 14:00 hrs, so you had to wait as you say over an hour since came at 13:00 pm Our policy of silence begins at 24:00 and we regret that that day will be delayed 30 minutes to leave the hostel to go to the disco.

Clean, excellent staff and location. The mattress are good, the rooms have healing service. The baths are always cleaned and the water is always hot too. All nights they offer some different kind of party and free teas every day =D

the hostel is great, it has a great, helpfull and friendly staff, a decent breakfast and it's on a central spot in the city. it has, however, really thin walls that compromises the sense of privacy. and in some cases, as was ours, some noisy neighbours can be annoying. even though, it has a great atmosphere and is really worthy.

I was booked in a private from for 2 nights. The room was good, but a bit a cold during winter. So layers help! Reception staff was friendly, though a little bit chaotic trying to deal with several customers at a time. So you might have to wait. Breakfast was ok. Location is close to Plaza Italia, so pretty central.

I stayed here for just over a week whilst looking for a more permanent place to live. The staff were always friendly, helpful and a good laugh. Comfy common area to relax in, fantastic breakfast where you can cook your eggs to your liking and a decently equipped kitchen for preparing your own meals. The hostel's in a central area,... More

I can't say anything bad. I felt home and comfortable. Just a suggestion: it's a big umid house... Some heating was necessary for me in the... More

I spent two weeks here and absolutely loved it. The location is great. It offers a social environment, but also peace and quiet in a clean room. The staff went out of their way to create a welcoming and fun environment. I would definitely recommend staying here.

For me the worst hostel I ever went to, the common rooms are very nice and the location is also really good, but the bathrooms and showers get cleaned really late, so as they only have like two showers for 10 rooms before 15 o'clock they are really dirty... The beds are also not really the best, but they are... More
