“GIRLS dont go unless you want to be TAKEN to SIN FACTORY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

10 percent deposit paid, booking confirmed 5 months ahead.
on arrival staff denied all knowledge of deposit or booking despite having a booking reference etc.
Hostel was full so no room at the inn......
Staff offered to find somewhere else...... as soon as this offer was reluctantly accepted, a man appeared immediately to take them away to another apartment......suspiciously quickly
The group of 9 (8 girls) were offered 2 separate apartments which were far apart.
one of the flats was next door to a place called the SIN FACTORY!
A man appeared demanding far too much money
The domestic staff were clearly unhappy about what was going on but too afraid to say or do anything to help.
PARENTS OF YOUNG TRAVELERS BEWARE dont make the mistake I made of letting your daughter book into this place. You wont sleep well at night.

Room Tip: Dont go! the hostel overbooks and the staff are unhelpful

It is messy, unorganised, and the staff just do not gicare AT ALL.

The check-in was neverending, they asked me the passport (as a deposit). At the same time, we saw an argument between the receptionist and a group of italians, it seemed that the group booked 15 beds and the hostel did not have place for them... We should have leave at that moment! but we didnt...

There are two bathrooms, one small, without locker, a bath (including a glass of razors collection - disgusting! what were the razors doing there?!); and the other one was with 4 showers & 4 sinks. It was mixed boys and girls, so I took a shower in bikini - (but I was also very uncomfortable due to the door were of glass!) There was no hot water at all! After 20 minutes I asked the manager and she said "I do not respond of the hot water system from Croatia"

The check-out is not possible before 12am (?). We asked the receptionist about my passport and... surprise! she said it was not in the office, that the manager took all the passport all with her, and the manager wasn't replying to the mobile phone. It was an absolute chaos, there were no reclamation letters, the receptionist was saying "in 5 minutes is here...", "she is downstairs..." - we wait for 2 HOURS!

We told her that we were going to call the police and she gave us 100 KN (15 €). End of story.

NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL - Avoid it at all levels. The street is a better place to stay...
