it`s not a hostel,its a pension.we've booked double bed room and it was ok.positive thing is the location,in a bice winding alley close to the sights.negative is that staff generaly doesn't speak english,it really cold and the heating costs extra 3 euros daily.no kitchen or common room and wifi is really weak in rooms.overall it's ok,its the cheapest in the city i think.staff lets u use their fridge or microwave if u ask.
First, the lobby smelled liked rotten eggs every time I walked into it. Second, the room was not very clean, especially with a used Qtip in the corner on the floor. Third, there are no small room heaters available and I woke up shivering every night. Forth, the wifi isn't accessible in your room, only in the hallway some or in the lobby. Fifth, everything appears to be 50 years old or more and smells old. This is very basic with nothing fancy pick another hostel.
The staff was really unpolite,rude and not helpful, they don't speak english. The shower was extremely hot or extremely cold. No privacy, the shared bathroom on the ground floor was in front of the reception. There was no locker, and we couldn't get out with room keys, and we had to ring the bell when getting back in the evening. WiFi didn't work on the higher level. Finally, we couldn't use the kitchen. But the most disappointing fact was the staff behavior.
It's not a hostel for backpackers. You could not sleep/eat/rest with eyes shut in the lobby (the only common area), because it gives a “bad image”. We’ve just slept 2-3 hours, we’re trying to rest a little bit, and closed our eyes. In a rude tone, the staff advised that if we want to sleep we need to get out…(it was 8 am, check-in 1pm). The luggage room (which looks like a kitchen that could not be used) gets full quickly, but it seems that with a little more effort more space could be arranged.
