So we booked fifth hostel a month in advance, got to the hostel and they'd given our beds to someone else blaming hostel world and booking.com for a double booking. Then they chucked us into the staff room at a hostel a block away that was 10 flights up stairs in poor conditions... Not what we paid for. Also the chick at the reception was seriously unhelpful and acted as though we were such a bourdon on her life..

They moved us to another hostel which is very noisy and dirty. The staff is nice but not helpful. There is no reception in this hostel. No computer for check in too. There are only 2 keys for one room with 6 people. My friend needs to stay in another room but she doesn't has a key. The toilet and bathroom is so dirty. No toilet papers and always a "river" in it. And it is smelly!

Always kind of strange to be the only people staying in a hostel on a Friday night especially at the start of summer... On-duty staff was asleep and didn't wake up when we rang, but the guy who came to let us in when we called the hostel's number was super prompt and friendly. Anyway, clean and decent place, but again, no atmosphere to speak of due to the lack of guests.


Nice, helpful staff. Great price. Comfortable stay

The sfaff is very kind and the place is nice


If you need a cheap place to spend the night, with great location and not much hassle - this is the place for you. The staff does not interfere with your stay, they're kind and helpful. I will come back.
