Central location, 24-hour check-in, wifi in every room, cozy common area, clean bathroom/shower, basically everything I can wish for in a Hostel. Definitely would go here again and recommend everyone to do so to!

It was okay. For sure the location is the best part of it. Could go anywhere in the city, if I knew how to get back to the main station, I could go back to the hostel. I found a pin in my bed after it was undone in my second day. I did not think it was dirty or...

We stayed one night in this hostel because it was weekend in summer and football match. All other places was overbooked. We stayed in 6 bedded girls dorm. One of our roommates was prostitute, other was drug addict - that shows reputation of facility. Mattraces were dirty, simply covered with bed sheets - my friend noticed old blood stains as...

I thought that this hostel was very convenient and provided what I considered good value for money. Very close to the train station, great rooms all with single beds so no bunk climbing, staff were friendly and helpful both times I visited, not expensive and I ended up with great room mates. I have been twice so couldn't be that...

Wifi and lift not working. Had to pay deposit for each key card. There is no common kitchen to use as stated. There was not even a paper nor plastic cup provided in the room. While sleeping at night we were kept awaken by other guests who returned from their night out in town. We could hear them talking, their...

Being a backpacker hostel, we got what we had paid for. But the hostel did cater to us without any unacceptable fault. We stayed in a 4-bed room with ensuite bathroom. So basically we have all of the spacious room to ourselves. The room has a dinner table set with 4 chairs, which came in handy for our meal inside...

Everything was fine until my friend figured out she has bed-bugs in her room and the insects bit her every night. The staff assumed it often happens and do not seem to really care about this huge problem. As we know, diseases could appear after being bitten by those insects. Now we are trying to get reimbursed and from a...
