First of all, despite the rating on trip advisor, my friend and I had expectations towards the accommodation. At the beginning, we are welcomed by a reception who looked like very tired. Then, we were let into our room where the floors were sandy and dusty. Besides that, the aircond was not functioning, and we informed the reception, but they... More

I stayed in Troka for only 2 nights. Small cozy rooms, nice shower and a comfy living room to stay in downstairs. The owner is helpful and friendly and sometimes take the customers out for dinner. The hostel is just 10-15 minutes away from the old town and there is a couple of good places nearby to eat.

Stayed here during summer and we were a bit apprehensive that it was far away from the main centre, however after finding out way its actually really close. We were in a 6 bed dorm, basic but clean and a fan for each bed. Usually get badly bitten by mosquitos but I was fine in this hostel. The owner is... More

It is a nice and small hostel with s really nice owner. Kuzman is very helpful and patient and he tries to take his guests out for dinner or sightseeing. The hostel has a very personal atmosphere with a nice common area. If you don't mind not having AC and not having super comfortable beds I would definitely recommend staying... More

This hotel does only look little like the pictures. It needs a deep clean. Bathrooms are dirty and just not taken care of. Toilet and shower are in one room. There is a bathroom upstairs and one downstairs. The rooms are also a bit nasty. Staff is very friendly and the guy making breakfast downstairs also seems to keep his... More
