Good location, quiet place. I was upgraded from dorm bed to single room with private bathroom which was nice. But the staff tried to charge me the booking fee again, think that was quite cheeky. Would probably stay there again.

In the hostel everything is ok. The neighborhood is not safe, mainly at night.

I have been staying at this hotel for some time, and was pleasantly surprised by resent renovations.

This was a great hostel. Great value, great breakfast, clean, nice. Actually, having a private room with a friend this felt more like a hotel, but that was perfect for me. Not much atmosphere, though, but everything else was top notch for a hostel.

Generally speaking the service was good, the only bad thing was the Internet, it just worked at the reception counter. And the comfort area should be more attracting for new arrivals.

Hostel almost felt like a hotel, great security on the doors and our room had room service and mini bar, as well as a large en-suite shower room. Nice computer area and chill out area on top floor. Great!

We had a great 2 night stay here. The triple room was very spacious and clean. Powerful shower. Great breakfast, and the staff is amazingly friendly. The hostel is very central but the area seems a little sketchy at night.

Lovely breakfast: big choice of food, spacey dining-hall. After Salvador the personnel here made impression as too stiking to rules, lacking compassion. After night fly we were forced to wait sitting asleep for 5 hours until eхactly 14-00 (prescribed check-in time). They do have plenty of beds unoccupied.

It is going through a bit of a refurbishment, which it needs in places, particularly the ban gneral had a gat stay and woudl reommend it. A good location, only 5 minutes or so from the metro and great for a number of gay bars and clubs which are almost opposite. The staff were super friendly and the breakfast was good. Comfortable beds and you get a towel thrown in!

유스호스텔이라기 보다 저가호텔임.. 얼리 체크인도 안해주고 얼리 체크인이나 레이트 체크아웃(게닥 오후 6시가 한계)의 경우 숙박비 반액 부담해야 함. 조식은 저가호텔처럼 스크램블 에그나 소시지, 과일 등이 있어 나름 푸짐한 편임.

Just about ticks all the boxes. Clean, spacious rooms with lots of light in a beautiful old building. Staff incredibly friendly, free internet if you pay cash, buffet breakfast of eggs, sausage, fruit, juice, fresh delicious cakes etc etc. Kitchen, roof top terrace I cant say enough. What a good little find!

Rooms were clean & large. kitchen was disgusting, dirty & barely anything to use. Breakfast was pretty bad - watered down juice, rubbery eggs with shell in them. Staff were nice & helpful.
