Hello hostel wasn't the worst. It's acceptable. The location was really out of the way (but close to a metro stop) and the wi-fi was absolutely non-existent in the all-girls building, which is a good block away from the main building. The free breakfast was just bread and cereal and the kitchen in the all-girls building is pointless as there's only a sink. Shower was nice, everything seemed clean, & the bar was really cheap. Overall, it was a fine place to sleep, but nothing more.
The cleaning lady was always smiling and working hard. Everything was spottless. Very good. Too bad wifi didnt reach the room
Hostel isn't in the best part of town. It seemed safe enough during day while there were two of us, but I wouldn't want to wonder around during night. We were placed in a second building - we had to go about 200m and cross the street to find it. It was quite and rather clean, but the beds weren't very comfortable, but the room was big enough - we had all top floor for ourselves. Breakfast was provided in first building. A little plus for a cute red-haired cat ;)
The staff here was very friendly and helpful! The location is okay, but you must take a tram to get to the city and it stops running around midnight. The girl's dorm is in a different building which 1) seemed unsafe since there was no one staffing a desk there (there was a key system, but still...) and 2) did not do much for the atmosphere since there was not really a common room in this building. The breakfast was great, and the hostel was really clean. Overall, a good experience.
I was staying in the 'Miss Hostel' as I had selected a female dorm, which was in a different building 5 minutes away. The Wifi in the building unfortunately did not work, so I would have to go over to the main building to go on the internet. My room was the first room on the right as soon as you walked in. This meant that it was noisy with people coming into the building, I could hear people coming up the stairs as well as the noise from outside. Breakfast and atmosphere in bar was good.
Close to metro station, 5 min from the city center. Internet wifi works fast in the common area, that is also very big: you can either decide to stay apart to eat your meal or have fun drinking at the bar or playing fuss ball. Very clean and well-equipped kitchen (always open). Very clean toilets and hot shower. Kind staff.
