None of the staff speaks English, the rooms are absolutely filthy with gross smears on the walls. They lock the doors at 12:00am so you have to knock on the door and wait for a sleepy man to let you in. Overly affectionate cats wandering around which is great with a cat allergy. First 2 days there was not a single other traveller staying. The staff constantly has their family and friends hanging out with wailing babies. They blast club music LOUDLY from 10:00am-12:00pm, heard in every room.

While it is in the old city with a decent location, it lacks in a lot of areas. It did not have air conditioning, which was fine, except they only had 1 fan for 4 people in a tiny room, making it unbearable for the night I stayed there. They didn't have many connections for the tours and what not, but were willing to call to figure it out, but it wasn't as readily available as it is in other hostels. I ended up moving after the first night because of the lack of travelers, wifi, and fans.

Ottima location vicino al centro storico e la zona con maggiore night life. Le stanze un po piccole e la colazione molto limitata. Comunque raccomando.

Good overall hostel. Showers are cold but you need it. Good sized lockers. Comfortable beds. Cute dog lives there - kept pushing our dorm door open in the morning. Some might find this annoying so it probably needs fixing. Great location, close to everything. Can take your own alcohol in and breakfast is very good. Lots of fruit. Staff not always available but usually somewhere in the hostel.

Both my dorm, the bathroom and the kitchen were FILTHY. Loud music and TV playing until late, only watched by staff (right outside our room). Staff did not have change when I paid and then disappeared so I lost money. Inefficient and unbothered staff. Our door did not close properly and had to be locked from the inside to close-useless in a shared dorm. Dirty animals with ticks and fleas wandering around into rooms. I don't understand how the ratings were not lower - its disgusting!

Breakfast is not included, although on line they said it was. Great location, tv with Netflix, laptop and kitchen you can use. The staff does not speak English. Not much going on, so of you want to make new friend consider another hostel.
