Location is very good. It is close to the center and it was easy to find to hostel. However, the room had no windows and no fresh air. The walls are thin and you can hear everything and everybody in the hostel. The shared bathroom was not the cleanest. And it would be great if showers and bathroom were separated.


It was weird to be in a hostel without seeing the staff. However, I cannot complain about the service, that really was well done by telephone. I slept in a 4-bed dormitory room, and a 2-bed one. Both were fine, with TV, twin beds, shelf, chairs ... The major problem for me was the distance to the city center, it required 15-20 min walking to reach it. Otherwise, if you take a collective transport card, it becomes easy to reach the hostel by bus.

Place wasn't that cheap as we booked it when some huge football tournament was on but normally I think it's decent value. Communal kitchen was good and the bathroom facilities did the job. You can walk to the hostel in about 40 mins from the station so not ideal but not awful either. Reception not open that long but didn't really need to be, free wi-fi provided although a little weak in our room. Free computer provided in the lobby if you need it.


Location is far from city centre (half hour walk). Room was clean but very basic, bunk beds even in twin room. No windows-very stuffy and strange. Appears to be several families permanently living here. No communal atmosphere. We checked in late and were given helpful/clear instructions via email, however saw no staff in our entire 3 night stay. Almost non existent. Had a man in our corridor stuck in his room, yelling and banging all night, however there was no staff around to help. Alarming...

There was aboslutely no flow of air in the room. I sweat in the room and my sweaty clothes never got dry because there was no air in the room. There was no internet in the room. The range of the WiFi stopped in the middle of the corridor and did not reach the room at the end of the corridor. It was impossible be in the room and relax because it was a hot sauna with no flow of air, no internet, no window, no television. For this poor quality of room, the price was extremely too much.
