“It's cheap but pretty dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

The hostel it's located in an old building (on the outside it looks good, but on the inside it's like a disaster) but it's pretty central. When we arrived, the sheets on the beds were dirty and we had to ask the staff to change them. They start a discusion but in the end they put other sheets, cleaner. Otherwise, the bathroom was clean and the kitchen cosy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

The location is great in the middle of the city, The place is cosy and clean, but a little worn and old. There is noise from the street, as it is when you stay in the middle of the city. We loved to stay there because of the very friendly and helpful staff and the location. I would truly recommend this hostel. You get great value for the money.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

This hostel has the most friendly and helpful staff we've met so far en eastern Europe. The location is great and the main door is situated towards the main street, but it's still a little bit hard to find because the sign is a little A4 piece of paper attached at the gate. The place is cosy and clean, but a little bit old. There is a little bit of noise from the main street below the hostel, but if you don't mind that i would truly recommend this hostel to backpackers and others who are interested of getting the most out of their money.
