Plus point : comfortable bed and clean sheets. Location. Bad points: being used as a homeless hostel full of single males who bother you and drink and argue. Not able to feel safe or relax. Bathrooms not to standard. No indoor relaxation area. Would not recommend to normal backpackers and definately not females

I’m here now and i regret that i booked two nights in this place. Very strange guests! I saw only strange men on kitchen doing a lot of mess. Besides, they don’t respect silent law late at night: long showers, wash machine and things like this just next to my door. The woman at reception at night doesn’t have the better face to deal with this. You have to pay for a towel and kitchen has only a microwave. If the atmosphere is nice i can overcome small things but I haven’t liked the energy of this place.

The 12-bed room is very small that I could sense someone next to me. The bathroom is not clean enough. What’s even more weird is there is one man who is not a guest stayed in my room. The location is very good that you can walk to the old town in one minute, the WiFi connection is strong and the staff is very nice, but that’s all.

I stayed at the hostel for 2 nights. Despite the excellent position in the city center, I found that the bathrooms were not clean enough. However I do recommend it for a short stay! The stuff was very nice :)
