When you see a sign "Caspian hostel" written by hand in the entrance of the building you will think that somebody is kidding with you, but thanks to hospitality of owners of the hostel (family) you will change your mind. I was in 12 beds room, cleanless is good, and old lady was cleaning bathroom every time I was there. There is no key because the hostel is in the house of that family (in separate building). One day old lady put blanket on me while I was sleeping because she saw I was frozen :)
A bit more English (and a couple of smiles, maybe?) would be expected of the "staff", but got my good night's sleep anyway. The texts of the signs in room showed a sort of rudeness, but in the end I got to keep my bag for the whole day, even though it was declared that they would do it only for an hour. Thanks for that. Security seemed poor, since anyone can just walk in without anybody knowing. The good side is that you have to know where to go, since it's not the most obvious of entrances.
The location is superb but the facilities are not the best. There is no common area and during the high season I could envisage the number of bathrooms being a potential problem. That said, the staff there do their best and the characters who stay at the place are definitely interesting people.
- You have to take off your shoes before entering the dormitory - The bathrooms were always wet and dirty - Internet connection was very bad, only in the balcony you can use it. - The staff was not helpful and dont know English very well. - The place is very central and easy to find. - There is no Hostel atmosphere
The kitchen written one the page is just a kettle, no chance to use their kitchen.
