Just a few minutes walk from Old Town and loads of tourist attractions. Situated in a quiet setting just outside of the park surrounding Old Town. It's OK for its price. A bit spartan and worn, but clean and functional. No extravaganzas but you get what you pay for. The location is perfect though with approximately 2 minutes walk to... More

Very ugly, very noisy and very, very, very dirty. Also: cold, old and wasted. Showers here are not your way to stay clean; beds are not a good way to rest. Everything is, in one way or another, disgusting. I don't know how cheap this is, but you don't want to sleep here at all.

Staff were nice and friendly although hostel facilities were not the best. Rooms were ok, but sheets weren't big enough and didn't fit the matress. They run out of towels so some of us had to reuse them. Water in the shower was freezing in the mornings and breakfast was literally 2 types of cereals without even milk. The location... More

I stayed for 3 nights, the bed was uncomfortable, the sheets don't fit properly.the room was cramped so not many places to store bags. No curtains so you get woken up with the sun. On good notes its pretty close to main market square and there are a few showers/toilets.

Worn and not so clean in the rooms. Extremely poor wi-fi if you dont stand in front of the reception desk. Thin matresses in beds so it is really hard beds. And I got a really unpleasant treatment from on of the staffs, or maybe it was the owner. But the girls that works there was really nice and helpful.

I was suprised by the kindness of the staff. I liked the food. The main room was nice and well decorated. The location is really good, because is just 10 minutes away from the market square and 30 minutes away from the train station

The best thing about this hostel is its location in the centre of the city. We had our own room and it was quite calm - we arrived off season so there wasn't many people. The hostel has a common room and a kitchen. The staff was friendly. The bathroom was clean.

The location of this hostel is excellent, only 5 mins walk to the centre of Old Town square and 15 mins walk to the bus/train station.

Fantastic. The lady at the desk was a bit grumpy upon arrival but she may have had a long day. It wasn't the very cheapest place we could find but it was in the cheap bracket and it is worth the £6/£7 for sure. We had a lovely clean airy room shared with a bunch of other travellers that we...
