I've booked this place for a family vacation through booking.com (two rooms), because of the convenient location. However, due to my mom's medical problem I had to cancel the booking 2 1/2 weeks in advance. The booking was non-refundable and I was immediately charged a full price (€500). All my explanations were totally useless: the impotent customer service of booking.com... More

First of all, note that room with 'private bathroom outside' is not private. Its is shared among 3 other rooms. The description must be changed. When I was moved to a 'room with private bathroom', there is no soap in the dispensers, the washbasin was leaking, only towel provided was dirty and the room was smelling. Breakfast was white bread... More

Don't go there. The worst place I ever stayed in. Had to change to another place and there are much better options around. Dirty, noisy, only cold water in the shower, no toilet in the room, no ironing possible and not as central as expected...

When I read the reviews about this hostel I was a bit skeptical of what to expect, it mostly said to be really dirty and to avoid it if possible. However, when I got there I wasn't bad at all. Sure, it's not a luxury hotel and it could be a bit cleaner (like behind the beds) but the sheets... More

I understand that something, hotel/hostel, can be cheap cause it's not new, not stylish, with no extra services. But this one even doesn't look ok, it stinks, it's dirty and it's cold. Try something else before landing here.

We didn't pay much, and were not expecting much as a result of this. The men on reception were very friendly and helpful. This hotel is best though if you are not spending any time there other than to sleep!! Be prepared to walk up 5 flights of narrow stairs. The walls of the rooms are so thin that the... More

The room was very dirty. The towels and sheets were worn and dirty. The hostel has very narrow stairs and smells like kebab. No housekeeping at the hotel. They never change the towels and clean the room during the stay. Breakfast does not exist, but they have a kebab just below. I never asked for breakfast, but they have never... More

Do not expect top offer for this money. But if you are not too spoiled and want a room in the centre for little money, and if narrow stairs are not a problem for you than this could be good choice. The stuff persons are very kind.
