I wouldn't really know how to Rate Doma hostel because when me and my travelling partner arrived, we were told that we are going to be relocated to another hostel 'for the same price and room'. Arriving to the other hostel, we saw that it was nothing like we expected and had payd for. The room was very small with no window, it stinked and the whole hostel looked dirty. We felt cheated by the Doma hostel and didn't stay more than one night in the end. The worst hostel experience of my life.

Well, the location of this hostel is just great: it faces the main square of the city, which means that you also have to support music and city noise until late. The hostel itself is clean and comfortable, but, maybe, too "formal". The only thing I really didn't like was an approach of a lady on the reception: I do really think It's better to avoid political issues with people you don't know.


My running shoes were stolen from "in front of" my room. Even if we were in a closed hostel were only guests can enter the house, someone from the guests (or I even suspect the hosts) took them. There were some suspicious "local" guests in the hostel - and I suspect they did it. Also some of the beverages that we left in the fridge were missing as well. Awful security indeed.

Great owner, amazing beds.


I'm never that amped when a group of 24 people show up at 1am and cause havoc. Also, only one bathroom in this place?


The hostel has a boiler limited, when we tried to have a shower before to sleep there wasn´t hot water, the location is ideal, the kitchen is too small, no more than one person can cook


Very well located hostel. The private room was huge and had a small table and chairs. The staff were friendly and helpful. Their wasn't much of a common room and the 'kitchen' isn't really useable, but that's ok because there are lots of cheap restaurants nearby. I wouldn't stay here if I was a solo traveller but it was definitely an ideal place for couples or those wanting a break from regular hostels. Only bad thing was the bathrooms were a bit smelly and the beds weren't very comfortable
