Serious problem of cleanliness. Unacceptable for 40€/day. You have to pay a 5% additionnal tax when you arrive (not mentionned). Try another hostel of possible!

I was worried about staying at Utopia based on the previous reviews. When I arrived I was there a couple hours early so i walked around till I could check in. I ended up getting lost and didnt get back till around 2 hours after i was scheduled to check in. The staff was very helpful getting me a map and checking me in. The room was very quiet and clean with a lot of natural light looking out over the street. I stayed for one week in the same room and had no problems. I highly recommend Utopia.

Great for smoking weed.... Only 2 showers, crazy stairs to get in, ok wifi, good location. Cheap and a bit rough. Has good Lockers under each bed.

It's not the best hostel, but you get what you pay...The stairs are the biggest trouble, to tiny. if you have a big baggage is gonna be a problem, and if you return a little bit drunk, also is gonna be a problem. the location is perfect, is not in the center but just a few blocks away from all (one block from the real palace!). Of couse, is a hostel and a coffee shop, so you have to expect run into people with that hobbie...

Its a great location and has the utilities you need- it's just very small, very tight and the stairs are scary -- don't come here if you've got a bunch of luggage or heavy luggage! Its also above a coffee shop - judge based on your preferences. It should have been a lot cheaper for what you get- the washrooms are tiny and the showers are as well. Very dimly lit. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless you really needed a place for one night (which was my case).

Pretty disappointed overall with this hostel. The staff member who checked us in was great (friendly and very helpful) but the hostel itself was pretty dire. The room we had (Room 7) looked absolutely nothing like any of the pictures advertised on the website. The bed was broken, meaning that it sagged in the centre. The sheets smelt of wet dog, and it was overall very noisy. All this would be excused if the room didn't cost 47 euros for the night. Disappointing.

Great location from train station. In our room the wifi didn't work though and there is no communal area so the atmosphere isn't great. There was a toilet on every floor but not a shower. The place was alright for two nights but I wouldn't stay there for any longer.
