friendly staff, help travelers a lot...


Stayed there last autumn for a week with my boyfriend. At noon it was a little bit noisy because they changed the windows. but in the Mornings and evenings it was quiet, so we could sleep. They cleaned the bathrooms and the hall every day. The hostel is very good located in the middle of the city and we had only three minutes to go to the centre. I would recommend it.


The staff was very friendly and did their best to always help us out. They went above and beyond even swapping my mattress for a better one. Unfortunately there were no towels provided and the ones we "hired" were in a poor condition. The toilet facilities were limited and we often had to wait to use a bathroom. The location is ideal!

Good location and helpfull staff. Few bathrooms for the number of guests. Window without a curtain, so very bright early in the morning.


there is not hot water. If there is it only lasts one person and the others can never take shower before at least one hour passed. It was terrible and ruined my mornings.

superb location with a huge lounge area. if you want a quite and relaxing place, this could be the one you're looking for.


Jei trumpai - viskas patiko. Briefly, everything was nice.


Big common area and kitchen, spacious room, nice


Unfortunately in renovation right now, a bit noisy owing to working machine after 7:30am. otherwise good value for money.
