It´s hard to imagine how in a full weekend you can only have one toilet for everybody, bathroom conditions are the most negative point on the Hostel, it´s pretty cheao to put a shower holder, or even plastic mats on the showers. Other than that staff and bar are suberb.

The staff are really nice, and the price is of course good. One can't expect too much with this price, but it is already very comfortable.

You could hear everything through the walls and doors, so even people walking or talking at the opposite end of the hallway would be noisy enough to keep you awake at night. Breakfast is simple, but absolutely okay.


the bar was always to loud, just another hoste l but nice


Not the best hostel I've been in- it lacked a social atmosphere, and the breakfast was a bit grim. But it was cheap, pretty well located and clean- so it's totally fine for a couple of nights. Just nothing special


the hostel was clean for the most part and the staff was friendly and very helpful. it is about a ten minute walk from the center. overall good experience.

Everything was great, i would just have one comment about the fridge. We were nor sure what we could have taken for breakfast. In other hostels they had a marker so people can write their name on personal stuff in the fridge.


As always great place to stay.Staff are so helpful and friendly.Really good atmosphere, cleanest hostel ever and great value for money- breakfast included. On the top of that ,they have own bar on site - nothing else to add up :) . Highly recommend this hostel ...


Wszystko super
