We were very impressed with the care that the hostel took to make sure our stay was comfortable. When we arrived late there was someone present to assist us with check in. It might seem that the hostel is a little far from the centre but it really is not too far to walk, especially to the markets. On the contrary the fact that the hostel is not in the old town gives you the chance to see another neighbourhood. Definitely recommend this hostel and the personnel very helpful and welcoming.

A "sleeping factory", that's it. A good place to stay if you are moneyless but if you want to find a real hostel, do not go there. Most of the people are local people. They are nice but live in the hostel, "have their habits" and they get used to live together : not the atmosphere you want to find if you are a solo backpacker ! 10 minutes away from the very center by tram (but do not forget that you have to pay...I spent more money for transport than for the night). Staff is ok.
You can't expect much for 6€/night. 11-bed dorm was big and spacious. The lounge was too small and in the morning it was crowded and not comfortable space to have breakfast. There should be also more showers. Most of the other customers are locals or Russian tourists of all ages so expect lot of weird older people. Location is far from the centre, but it is still walkable distance. However some areas on the way are little sketchy-looking after dark.
Nice staff. Could have had more showers. A sink in the toilet would be great. Another fridge would be good as the one they had was so full. Not many other backpackers, mostly locals staying in the hostel. Good value for money at 5e/night though.
Usually, we expect cheap service for cheap price. But it's wrong for this hostel. Everything is kept clean. I can lick the dormitory floor with pleasure. And you should keep in mind, THEY SERVE BREAKFAST!! (although you see they don't serve on the website.) Breads, jam, serial, milk. Enough volume.
Perfectly good place to stay if you are looking for a quiet night if sleep. Its quite far from old town, but if you want to save money by staying here it is an easy tram ride. A lot of local guys were staying here which was a bit weird, but the manager gave me a private room even though i signed up for a dorm which was nice. No atmosphere, and not a good place to stay if you are looking to meet other backpackers. I got a great night of sleep though!
