Hostel kept just enough to survive for one night: no soap in bathroom, rooms with no fresh air, entrance smelling. The owners are nice but would take just few money more to make it better.

There is no lock in the room.

The staff at Boomerang was so helpful and friendly! The atmosphere in the lounge is so nice, you easily get to know other travellers/hostel guests. The 2.50 breakfast was basic but WELL worth the little money it cost! Many types of bread, with fresh meat, cheese, of course chocolate, peanut butter, etc. and fresh coffee, tea, juice and cereal. I would recommend this location for someone who is indeed travelling on a budget! I would recommend renting the sheets for 2.50 or bringing some.

Breakfast was really good but the heater was not warm enough and it was pretty cold.

It is a great starting point if you only have little time to explore the city. Coed shower rooms are funny.I found the atmosphere very friendly.

Location is ok. What is not satisfied was cleanliness of toilet and bathroom which is dirty and smell. At night, there is a group drinking in front of hostel while there is no lock for the room. Would not recommend this hostel to all friends.

You get what you pay for. If low pricing is your priority and you only need a place to sleep, consider Boomerang.

Atmosphere

The mixture of the visitors makes the atmosphere - party people on weekends, artists and workers during the week - anyone who wants to stay cheap, eather because for longer or because for just one night. It is the opposite of a fancy hostel, but for the price absolutely ok.

Very different to any other hostel ive stayed in, more like a big house, good use of kitchen, rooms are big, matresses lityle worn. Most people are on laptops/tablets, hard 2strike conversation, none the less oportunkty is there when people wanna talk.

The hostel is very cheap and that is what one should expect from the facilities. 12 beds rooms did not have the lockers nor the doors could be closed. Breakfast however was nicely served in a common room. The hostel provides wifi, but in a very sophisticated way, one must choose a login and password from the list and try, if nobody has chosen that one, you will succeed. The hostel suits best for large groups.

Stayed for two nights. It was great if you don't have high expectations. Bathrooms were clean and beds were comfy

The woman who ran the hostel was very rude, and the communal area felt like it was her living room rather than a hostel living space. The only security you get for your luggage is in a small cleaning closet that is kept under lock and key...but you can only get to your luggage with the mean woman standing over your shoulder literally rushes you to get your stuff. direct quote 'you take too long.' no locks on the doors and while showering she opened the bathroom door just to see what we were doin

It is what it is.
