the hostel itself is just great and earns it 5 stars! newly renowated, bright, convenient location, top clean and well sercived!
but hopefully you arrive when one of the guys is there at the reception. the lady simply beggars all description! it was quite difficult to figure out who's the customer and who's the service provider with her :-O just as an example the wi-fi internet connection: they sell you 1h for 'I-can't-remeber-how-much-because-I-decided-better-to-forget-quickly' and in the fine-print you find that they even put a 40MB traffic limit on that. After enquiering they say that it's actually 80MB. But still, after doing some online-banking it was kinda used after like 30min. Asking how that cuold be, the plane answer is: "well you just seemed to suf to much". no youtube, no soundfiles, not even activated flash, but she would just sell me another time-ticket for a price way over the top! better don't hassle with that Wi-Fi and just go down to a green point internet-café where you find easily one that sells you an hour to half the price with at least twice as much MB!
