Actually you should remove this hostel from your books it is the most disgusting hostel i have been to in 55 years. It is run by a mad man called Fabrio. Who told us he really Only wants the 100euro people who stay in single rooms. I and 9 people in the mixed Dorm no lights heavy woollen rugs on the beds bathroom 1 1/2 metre sq 1 window in Dorm1 window with broken shutter no air no aircon 36degree heat. I was said to have Washed myunderwear and flooded the b Ought Have been t


Location was great! Staff were ok! I'm not one to really complain but there was an issue with the toilet that needs to be fixed, water isn't meant to come gushing out of the cistern after you flush! Also the bedroom can get REALLY hot in summer if you don't pay for aircon so be prepared! Apart from that, it's value for money.


The hostel was conveniently located. The instructuctions about what to do on your areival were very clear. The staff is very helpful and quick to answer emails.


it was the worst hostel I've ever stayed. They forced you to leave the room at 10 am so you don't have the right to sleep longer if you please to. The reception is only open 3 hours. it was the first time we were treated this bad I don't recommend it at all.

Great place to stay however the check-in times are a little odd. Perfect location!!! Watch out for the 4 Euro charge for sheets however


After paying 14 euros pp, and additional 2 euro city tax, we were then forced to pay an extra 4 euro pp for linen that we didn't need. The man at reception insisted that we lay our sleeping bags down before leaving; but this was impossible as we had a train to catch in 10 min. We could not enter the building upon return, as the code that was supposed to be sent via email, was not. The contact number was not answered for at least 30min. There was no soap or even even extra toilet paper!!
