Staff were very busy and simple requests like bed sheets to place over bare mattresses took hours to satisfy. When I got linen, it barely covered the top of the mattress. Aesthetics were lacking, but the bathrooms were endured only because we had no choice. Noise was an issue within the walls of the property as it sits in a rather quiet part of the city.
When you look from the street it looks like a beautiful hostel/restaurant, but no. They are all about the restaurant, but the hostel is really disorganized and in bad conditions. No padlock lockers, you have to ask for a key. No keys to everybody. When I finally got a locker key to myself, the same key opens all lockers. The kitchen is terribly equipped. It claims to be a party hostel, but not. Don't stay here, not even if you like party hostels.
