“Give me a break!”
Reviewed February 16, 2005

This place had all the ingredients to be a great place to stay. It is super cheap, has a great bar downstairs and seemed like a lot of fun. HOWEVER, if you ever decide you want to go to sleep before the bar closes down you can forget about it. If you can get past the fact that you're in a room with 17 other people it doesn't really matter because the whole room shakes, literally! My bedframe rattled until after 2AM when the bar finally closed down. That's the one and only problem with this place.

I met a bunch of cool people who were staying there. Mostly students, or people passing through there only for a night. Apparently there's a place in Hyde Park that they go to when they've saved up some money, so they can get some sleep.

Seriously though, sound proof your bar! I stayed in a hostel in Prgaue, Traveler's Dhloua I think it was, which is on top of a nightclub and it's soundproofed and was never a problem.
