Stayed for a few days here. To start on a positive note the hostel is modern and clean with free tea and coffee.However there is no proper kitchen which is rediculous given the size of the place. There is merely a small snack preparation area on the ground floor, adequate for heating noodles and no more as this snack prep area is crowded with 3 people in it.
Now onto the noise from the bar. Why should one have to wear earplugs to sleep? Spoke with reception to turn down the music, or rather, noise pollution as i wouldn't call it music. To no avail, which seems a common occurrence from other comments on here. If anything it got louder. FYI the city council's noise enforcement office is located right across the street. Tempting to make a call! Why the place has no respect or its guests who require sleep is beyond me.OverAll the impression I get from this hostel, which seems to be the cash cow of the nomads group is that once you've paid for your overpriced accommodation, to hell with you.
One other point, after paying for wifi access, you have to pay again, in effect paying twice if you wish to use a p.c. What's that all about?
Give this place a very wide berth if you want sleep and wish to cook a meal.
