This hostel was the worst hostel ever. I stayed the hostel on the new year's day. We didn't have any choice so, this was our the only option. But, It was awful. We couldn't find any shower facilities. Even in toilets, there was no hand wash. It was too dirty, cold and security was awful. Location is good.

Entire hostel is dark and shabby, run by foreigners of unknown origin. Personal items went missing while we were away, with no luck of recovering them. Communities inside and outside the hostel are both unsafe, and there is no nearby free cash machine.


Loads of reviews here, almost all of them including words like "dirty, rude staff, dangerous, noisy", along with an endless stream of words that just make the hostel sound like a cross between a homeless shelter and a squat...and its all true. Yes, its cheap, but the place attracts very shady characters, who will turn on the light in the middle of the night and make noise as you are trying to sleep, it really makes you feel insecure. You will regret not spending more and staying somewhere else.


There is few staff for many people. We can make check in 14:00 but they leave all of us around 16:00 they do not tespect the order how we arriave. Security staff is rude. They do not have wi-fi. Breakfast is fine (toast, milk, juice..). The shower is included in the room but with out privacy. Is easy to arriave by undergound is the most value thing. The toilets are not clean.
