The only problems were that staff told us the ckeck-in could be made anytime, but once we got there in the morning we had to wait until 2pm to the room to be available for us. Also, the neighborhood wasn't very friendly, but apart from that it is easy to get from the centre, friendly staff, amazing breakfast, clean room with locks, there was a daily cleaning in private bathrooms. We would definitely come back. There is no wifi in the rooms, but for purpose.


Everything was excellent.

The hostel is just great with fantastic staff. Clean, well equipped, new, tidy, great and they have a secure parking as well. The wifi not always worked, we couldn't use it for emails. Okay, that area is not the best but the hostel is. Absolutely worth it. Thank you guys! :)


In the building renovations are taking place and in the hall it's like on the site, Room smelled after fresh- paint, curtains are even dirty after the color. Floor in the room looks unfinished. The location is not far from the city center , but the neighborhood is really dirty and doesn't look very safe- I would not recommend for solo travelers. Breakfast was one of the best we have experienced, but there were not enough dishes, cups - and I missed some veggies.
