I´d recommend this hostel warmly. We stayed in a double-room and the room was made ready though we arrived ahead of time. No problems with cleanliness. The guys running the hostel are very helpful and interested. Thanks Eva especially! For sure the smoking in the ground floor is disturbing but we didn´t have a problem with it in the 3. floor. I loved the many cats and if you choose a hostel with this kind of flair you should be aware that there is the possibility of having a small "cat mess" somewhere though this didn´t happen during our stay. The breakfast is turkish and enough for everybody. Besides this there is a waterdispenser everybody can use the whole day. We had a great time with interesting people and I´d love to come back soon.
