I traveled with my wife and it was comfortable cause rooms of this hostel only for two people. We sticked beds together. The room was clear. But In the corridor smell was bad. Our room had big window and view on the park and the city. This hostel situated near the center and we walked to the sights by feet. Also the price was cheap. And the last point can compensate for a shortcoming of something.

DO NOT STAY HERE. This was honestly the worst place I have ever seen or smelt. The bathrooms were unusable and there was literally a s**t on the floor which remained there (after the so called cleaner had cleaned the bathroom) until we complained about it. Every single bathroom had at least one or several toilets which were closed so you could not use them (note pictures below to imagine how bad they must have been if this toilet was left open), the other toilets ALL had skiddies all over them. Every single bin was over flowing, including in the common areas. The girls bathroom bins were all overflowing with toilet paper, used pads and tampons. We complained about all this and were told it would be cleaned, nothing had been done the next day. I went down again and complained and asked if they get a lot of complaints to which the guy said “yes”. I asked why is it like this then? And pointed out how disgusting it is and he said “I know I live here too” and the other said “what do you want me to do”. It’s very obvious that nobody cares about the cleanliness whatsoever.

Great location, great stuff. The place where you can stay for small amount of money. The center of the town is near, Citadela is also near the hostel. Very peaceful location and good place. Stuff is very helpful. BUT....Big but...Cleanliness of WC is very disappointing, but the room and bathroom in the room (shower) was OK.

What an absolute s**t tip!! Words can’t describe the s**t, literally s**t I seen at this place!! The toilets had not been cleaned since probably back in the 90’s, no toilet roll, only half of them worked and the smell......oh jesus the smell!!!! Took ages to check in as we attempted to pay by card, only to be told that they only accept cash. We were told that the closet ATM is probably a 15-20 minute walk away, and at 1am it’s not really an ideal situation to be in after travelling etc. The staff were not helpful in one way and were very rude. The only plus is every room has a shower, but no towels, not even to rent! To sum up, never visit this hostel as it’s absolutely disgusting, bad location and very bad customer service!! Avoid at all costs, that’s just advice from the local rats!!
