I stayed 7 night in in Somnio hostel, in a single room (Nr.2).
On the wall outside, right near the balcony door there was a big air conditioning device. Considering its size, I think it worked for the whole hotel. Its noise switched between average (like an old refrigerator), loud (like a washing machine) and VERY loud (like a washing machine in spin cycle). After a first night I bought earplugs in a nearest pharmacy so I could sleep normally next nights. Not very comfortably though.
Аir conditioning in my room: it was NOT working. There was an air conditioning device in my room, but it was disabled. And the big noisy device outside worked not for me, it was for someone else. I got only the noise. Additionally, I had to keep the balcony door closed, to lower this noise at least a bit. And that in a small room, in the middle of summer!
Cleanliness: the room was never cleaned, towels or linen never changed (for 7 days) and I had to empty the bin myself.
Location: near the city center, good for short (sightseeing) visits but not good in summer (too far from the beaches)
wifi: not fast but worked
The hotel was not cheap (45-50 EUR/night) but it is still considered as a budget hotel. So although the room was small and the shower/toilet were common I could still rate it with 5 points. However:
- 2 points for the horrible noice
- 1 point for no air conditioning in July
- 1 point for not cleaning the room
