Book this place if you want to ruin your trip with a rude hotel owner and the dirtiest bathroom in the city! The owner started his antics when we called him the night before to ask what time our room will be available by: Slamming the phone on our face! The next day he said "I have a life".... Dude!...

The guy who owns the hostel is rude and unpolite. He barelly checked us in! We were charged for the bedsheets and the air condition use is charged too. The room wasn't clean, the beds were uncomfortable and the bathroom was in a seperate room! I don't insist to anyone!

To sum it up: it was dirty and disgusting. Worst place I ever stayed. We where charged extra for bedsheets and towels. The bedsheets where yellow, the towels had makeup spots on them. The kitchen was disgusting. There was food on the floor. The staff didn't clean once during the 3 days of our stay. Only new toiletpaper and taking... More

The first problem I had, along with some poor Spanish lads, was that upon arriving at the place there was no-one to answer the door, we waited, rang the bell many times and, after they left, I stayed a bit longer till someone showed up. Once there it was OK. They gave me a nice 3 bed room, I could... More

Dont do it. You have to pay extra for everything (sheets, air condition...), the staff is never around and when someone is at the reseption, they are talking on a phone. The beds are really uncomfy and this place has the worst hostel kitchen in a long time. There is also just two toilets, which by the way are always... More

The one guy at the reception was so rude to me. He shouted, swore and was being extremely rude when all I wanted to do what check out at 9am since the reception is only open 9-12 and he arrived at 9.20 and I had a train to catch. If he wants to run a business, maybe reception should be... More

This hostel is the worst one I have ever seen in my entire life! When we arrived the hostel was empty. In our private bathroom there was poo in the toilet and it was smelly. The room would have been ok, but it was dirty, dusty and just unhygenic. The mattresses were old and celarly have been used for years.... More

The hostel is conveniently close to the main attractions and the train station. The owner is unfriendly, the reception is only open from 9 am until noon. The other moments you can enter with a code although we had a lot of troubles with this. Be aware if you don't bring your own bed cover and warn the owner you're... More

Great location but the staff is non existent and when they were there, it was only when I needed to pay my bill and he was not a friendly man. A nice hostel and great location though! Have an umbrella in July it rained everyday.
