It appeared to be more of a housing place than a youth hostel with families staying there. It's an old building and seemed quite run down. The lockers are tiny and the room absolutely stank. Not a great experience but what can you expect for the price . The staff (Natalia in particular) was extremely helpful and friendly!

Facilities are bad, kitchen missing a electrical stove is stupid that costs nothing and enables you to cook, instead there is only a microwave though there is plenty enough space for a stove. Bathroom not good, toilet lock broken, kinda smelly, showers rly weird there are 2 but one of them faces the door with transparent shower door, wtf? Too many people in some room, so you get the selfish people making calls in their bed all night while you're trying to sleep. It does annoy everyone. Bad place

the place is average. i mean cmon if you want something nice with luxury you can simply go somewhere else. but if you are just there to get to know the city and not the hostel this one should be enough. the only details i didnt like the wifi seems to have some problems but again you pay what you get. and the door from room 23 ) (i guess) was to loud so in case you go out at midnight your roomates would def. notice. other than that. the location is great and the staff was helpfull enough.

The shower room is only one for people. It is very inconvenient.

The dorms were very clean although it had a weird smell. The shower and bathroom facilities could be improved.

Would have liked the ability to rent an adapter for US plugs. Did appreciate help booking cabs. Bedding was very comfortable, even if mattress was thin.

When I booked I got an email that said the remainder of the payment was due on arrival but they took it out of my bank account immediately anyway without notifying me then I needed to change my booking (nearly a month in advance at that point) and they said it would be fine and they'd refund me the extra but they never have and they've completely ignored all my requests for information. Regarding the facilities, they might as well rename the place faulty towers.

6 of us rented a private room and got put in a box room on the bottom floor with no windows. Was very stuffy and the toilets were pretty dirty and the showers half broken. The woman on at reception was really friendly though. Probably wouldn't go back.

The toilets didn't have locks in doors, and they had problems flushing. Using a new shower is always as hard as learning a new language, and took me about 5 minutes to figure out how to use it. Instructions or something would have been nice.

I felt safe at the hostel with two pin coded gates. They were doing renovations so was a bit loud and noisey. I stayed in a private double bedroom with my partner. There wasn't much room but the bed was comfy. The shared facilities were ok but had to go all the way down to the basement to use the toilet and bathrooms (we were on the first floor) staff not the most welcoming but answered quequestions. Fire alarm at 1am which wasn't really explained and no one seemed to know what was going on.
