Clean enough hostel, with really nice & helpful staff. Central location in a quiet area of town, very close to cheap eateries & a small supermarket. Buses close by. Metro is 15 minutes away. The dorm sleeps over 20 people but somehow it doesn't feel like it. The cafe/common area has a good social vibe & makes the hostel one I recommend. Although there's one major drawback: no own drinks/foods are allowed there - which really sucks. Especially as the drinks/foods on offer are totally overpriced!
Staff were friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere in the communal lounge, beautiful decor. Laundry and drying facilities, large communal fridge, boiling water available. Bar next door on the right, convenience store 50 m down the road on the left. Close to public transport.
Would stay there again. Staff was really nice and helpful. :)
The out of hours receptionist seems a bit grumpy and does not speak English. The dorm and beds were really warm and comfy, however the shower is 2 flights of stairs away from the dorm (in winter it's freezing to reach) and the toilets were quite dirty. They could do with better heating in the common area. Basic English menu but palatable. They have a useful map to help navigate the city. Overall a nice hostel but would definitely go for a private room and ensuite next time!
everything was great, only the drinks are a bit overpriced.
I only stayed one night, arriving late and leaving early. So I am not qualified to give a full review. However, I wanted to mention that the water in the hotel smells very odd, of sulfur and spoiled eggs. It wasn't just my room: another traveler also mentioned this to me. Hopefully the hostel can fix this problem. It looks lovely and is in a great location.
