“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The tv did not work, there was nowhere to hang your clothes (back of a chair), there was no curtain on the window which had frosted glass, not that there was any view, it looked out onto an alleyway. there was only 1 pillow and a tiny cushion, it was after 3 attempts that I got a pillow which was the night before we were going home. The room did not get cleaned when we were out the room at all. We had to use the same towel twice. The 1st morning we woke to what sounded like a building site in the corridor outside our room. The staff just weren't interested in your requests. And to top it of they added an extra 10euros on to the price we already had on our confirmation paper, with no excuse or reason !!

Unbelievably tatty place, so disgusting you need to wear disposable gloves and endeavour not to touch anything. Only clean thing was the bed linen. Stingy mean tasteless breakfast. Avoid at all costs!

Upon arrival I genuinely thought I'd wandered onto the set of the new Hostel/Saw movie. I believe if I had walked into the room, laid a turd onto the palm of my hand and clapped repeatedly it would have probably improved it in both looks and cleanliness. I would have given it a "Terrible" rating if it wasn't for the beds being pretty comfy and the location being decent. Myself and three of my friends paid €41 EACH for the privilege of staying here for a night, God only knows what that money goes towards because it certainly isn't used to fix the exposed wall sockets or painting over the graffiti on the walls, buying shower curtains, new mirrors or a hoover. Also, to add insult to injury there is a brand spanking new Hilton right across the road, if you listen carefully you can hear the guests there chuckling to themselves and they watch you cry yourself to sleep at night.

We were 4 people and the 4 of us had the same impression. This is a cheap hostel that's true and people are very nice BUT before booking, you have to know that most of (= all except us) the client stay there because it's next to the red district and cheap. The perfect place to smoke pot in your room. It was a very bad experience to smell this odor from early morning. So depending on your programm you will choose it or not

The bed linen was clean, other then that, thick dust on top of the cabinets, no plug in bathroom, no mirror, a badly sawn bed head board, views of brick walls out of all 3 windows, 1 window being a door of which the bed was shoved up, there was no getting out of there! Mould spores in the fridge, a wardrobe you can't use as there is no rail!, colourful walls where children had stayed, oh and the spy hole in the door could be easily poked tho if someone wanted to! 1 night was the only night we stopped. Oh and as for a double bed it's 2 singles pushed together! Breakfast consists of 2 bread, butter, jam, 1 slice if ham, 1 slice of cheese, 1 fried egg and a tea or coffee. Oh and a big no no for the disabled, I failed to mention I have problems walking and we were on the top floor and there is no lift. Also unfortunately you are unable to leave reviews on the hotels website
