During my stay at la regent hostel I was a quite disappointed by the quality of my single room and hostel in general- having stayed in over 8 different hostels for a similar price throughout Europe on my trip I can safely say this was the worst in terms of cleanliness/quality. The shower was basically impossible to use- it was such a small space that I could not physically stand in the shower without either my back touching the wet shower curtain or turning off the tap- which turns on outwards into the shower. The bed was so hard that I found myself waking up in the night with back pain! the pillow was basically made from air it was so thin and the quilt was a thin blanket which just about sufficed... Whats more I found a small cockroach in my room... I did not mention any of this to the staff in their defense- as they may have provided a different room or more pillows etc, as I was literally just sleeping in the room and did not want to cause a fuss for the two days I was there. The staff seemed fairly pleasant from the little interactions I had with them. The communal toilets were a little shocking... sanitary items left in an open waste paper bin in the evening and still there at 11am the next day. All in all I wouldn't recommend the hostel for anything other than location, and go only if you are a very laid back traveler with small expectations like myself or otherwise be prepared for a shock.
