The bathrooms seem to have been recently renovated and showers and toilets are resonably clean, but there were cockroaches one evening. Otherwise good. Rooms were clean, although the wifi signal didn't quite reach the dorm. Unfortunately, the cafe isn't open in winter, so you have to get food outside. We were a bit diasppointed that the staff wanted to charge us double because we asked to change our room after checkout time (it's winter and the hostel almost completely empty).
We first stayed on the 15th floor and really enjoyed the place. I accidentally booked the apartment and I guess for the money it should be worth a whole apartment but we've stayed in places just as big for cheaper and much nicer. It was extremely humid and smelled like mold. If you're going to stay at Lete Hostal don't stay in the apartment on the 13th floor.
We were perfectly content, felt safe and taken care of. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our room with a bathroom was great, slept well. I've read some reviews that weren't that good about this place but I didn't find them to be true, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our stay.
Interesting input from other guests. The café not always open for service and overpriced. Showers ok but separate bathrooms very few. Frontdesk english speaking. Friendly and helpful travelling agency 2 floors above.
The bathroon can cleaner I think. One of the highlights you can see from the hostel. It's 15 minut walk to the shoppingstreet and temple, 20 minutes to te mosque.
Nice place, full of backpackers, easy to find other travellers heading to the lake. Good location with a 15min walk to the city centre.
The best things about the hostel were the friendly and helpful staff. Our room (the double private room) was spacious and neat. The negatives, however, were: the bathroom stank, and was never cleaned properly (eg. sink and mirror were never wiped), the water pressure was low, many common areas were not useable because they were full of laundry or had people sleeping there, and overall the hostel was grimy and not well maintained (eg. lots of unrepaired water damage, gross old carpets).
My friend and I enjoyed staying at Lete - in a double room. The bedside lamps as well as the lockers are very useful. The colourful pockets for keeping small things made the room very cosy. The only thing I didn't like was the carpet on the floor. I prefer floor that are easy to keep clean. Computers for the guests to use - also very useful.
A very nice and cleanly place to be. Those within the hostel were friendly.
