I have stayed in hostels of various quality over the globe but Grand Hostel provides an unique experience. The chemical smell (bugspray?) of bedsheets was so horrible that I couldn't sleep. I am definitely not an extremely sensitive type but after each touch of the bedsheets I had to wash my hands to avoid the smell. Even the puke smell in the bathroom was better. I did not even mind the blinking lamp (turned off) over my head whole night. What a horrible experience. Very friendly staff, though.

Good facilities and outside terrace. Easy to socialise there.
My only two issues were the location, a good thirty minutes from the city Center, and the size of the rooms, which fit two bunks and not much else. But, the staff are really friendly and the bar has a great atmosphere at night, so if you're on a budget but still want good vibes, stay here!
