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).

When this customer asked our front desk to change room, it was already in the evening about 8-9pm. Our check-out time is at noon. So the front desk asked the customer to pay for the dorm bed for half of the day's cost. Our hostel was not empty at that time. The dorm room where this customer was staying had 5 people in total(a 6-bed dorm) and we had a 15 people foreign group were staying at that time. The room the customer wanted to move to was the only available double room out of 4 double-rooms


good place. Recommended


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.
