A lot older & more run down than it looks in pictures. Not the cleanest. Heating, vending/coffee machines didn't work. You can hear what's going on next door and in common areas (kitchen, stairwell, showers). Mixed showers had no cubicle doors, only shower curtains. No one at reception when we arrived, we had to call her. When she arrived she said "guests don't usually arrive at the time they indicate" and used that to justify why she wasn't present. Wifi was good.


I am really glad to stay in AVA Hostel! It is an old building with so nice artistic energy and that is why it represents the cultural atmosphere of the whole city. Although the staff was usually missing, it was very kind and helpful. There was hot water, many bathrooms and shower rooms and everything was clean. Also the kitchen was equipped with all the needed staff and more. I recommend you to stay there, enjoy!!

Excellent location in the middle of the town and artistic rooms are the only positive things we found in this hostel. No one at the reception, for check-in we had to phone the receptionist and then to wait for him about 20 min. No one neither during the night so the building was very very noise until 3.30 am. Beds really uncomfortable, NO HEATING in the room and NO HOT WATER in the morning... and it was JANUARY!!! Stay away, for the same price you can surely find better places.


The room was one of the cheapest in the town and it corresponds to the type of accomodation. You can hear everything from the other rooms, but we were lucky to be here at the end of October, except one night we three were alone there. Finally I was satisfied. By the way, any insect wasn't there :-)
