A little bit far away from the city centre and the area is shabby but the staff is great and the hostel is clean. Definately recommend.


What u think about a hostel that kicks you out of your room, because they give the priority to other people, WITHOUT telling u or asking to move to another bedroom and when u arrive to your room, your stuff is not in the bed the way u left in the morning b4 u went out for touristing? They choose how to treat ppl in this place, by $$. If u are in lots of ppl, u have preferences than a person that is alone, doesn't matter if you payed everything correctly. T


The staff is nice. We arrived early and could leave the bags at the hostel until check-in. We had a twin-bedroom in the second building. There, the shared facilities were not very clean. And so was our room. Everything was a bit outdated, which is not bad. However, some of the wallpaper was about to come off, and stains on provided towels and moldy smelling shower rooms are not inviting at all. The main building with the meeting area was nice, though. Breakfast was simple but good.


We were a group of people used to travel and stay in backpaking hostels. The room we had was dirty and full of food and emty cans and bottles (during the two days). The beds were extremly unconfortable and two of the other people staying in the room had been there for months so the room stank like rotten food. On the top of that the staff was extremly unfriendly and unpolite. Definitley don't recommend it.


Lovely staff, excellent atmosphere! A place where you enjoy yourself and meet friends. I wish I had stayed one more night.


staff are friendly and polite. beds and rooms are fair with that price.


All the staff are very attentive, considerate and helpful. Adjusting their routine to computer activities actually gives them twice as much work but sorting out complications involves you in conversation. Becoming acustom to their relaxed personality helps things you would not cope with because of your education, or training to avoid situations quite supportive. I look forward to anpther pleasant travel experience.

Very nice hostel, friendly atmosphere and very cheerful decoration! Our dormitory was very comfortable, everything was clean, and we had a great breakfast with Nutella, peanut butter, fruits... And it is only 5-7mn from the center.

One of the most comfortable hostel lounges I've been in.
