There was only one shower that was often utilized by the other guests. The hostel staff would also go to bed without giving us a key to the gate, locking us out for a short period of time. Aside from that the hostel was great and in a good location.
only downside is there could be better maps availiable. the staff are excellant especially Anna.
The staff was not very friendly. They were only nice if they wanted to sell something like trips they offer. They tell you, that it is almost impossible for tourists to go somewhere and visit the country on your own, which is of course not true, only to get you on their organised trips.
Staff was very friendly and welcoming. On arrival staff gave me a map of the area with great recommendations! Hostel was very clean and is about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the main street.

I booked my stay for a night with them, but then ended staying for almost a week! The most cosy hostel in the region, I would say, very clean, comfy beds, and very friendly staff. The backyard is truly amazing! Free tastiest grapes hanging from all over! Loved it!
Perfect hostel with the friendliest staff ever! The wonderful Anna provided the perfect soundtrack and made the garden even more colourful with a new painting. That garden is a real oasis and makes the hostel a good place to relax or to meet people after exploring, partying or dining out in the city!
I felt frustrated. First towel wasn't for free. A worker in the hostel didn't explain it to me, when I arrived. It's 2 EUR. You cannot offer things without explaining prices. Worse the same one skipped my questions 3 times, though I asked simple things to her clearly in English and even in Russian. Her attitude was visibly different to others. I disliked it, and I remarked it to her. Hope she'll learn things. On the other hand a Belarusian guy and Dima were really nice. So totally it was ok.
Great hostel and great stuff. It was cheap and clean. Location was good for me altought my bed was under a window where cars passed by during the evening and morning, so it wasn't very nice place to sleep. The backyard was nice and I loved colour of the hostel. I spent there 2 extra nights, cause I liked it :)
