This is the only budget place to stay in Rijeka and they know it. The owner is disgraceful - she arrived an hour and a half after we had agreed to check in keeping us waiting on the doorstep, she hammered on the door while I was in the bathroom, and tried to bully us to check out an hour before arranged. The rooms are stuffy and with the windows open at night it is impossible to sleep through the traffic outside. Near the train station.

We could not stay at Nicolas Rijeka in Rijeka, Croatiae. There was nobody. We waited but it did not help. We called but the number was not available. So we had to search for another room. We wrote him that we want back our money - he wrote ok. No word why there was nobody there. So we hope, that he will send us our money .
Not to expect too much in this hostel. It's good for night or week stay, not more...BAD: No kitchen, no chill room, cleanless is poor, wet toilet flor...God: Cheap, near to center, calm...
The staff is very friendly, the location is good (just a 5 min walk to the city center). The rooms are quite cleean, but in every part of the hostel there is a terrifying stink of cigarettes/smokes... Bathrooms are too old (scary) and needs to be renovated. Beds are unconfortable and on every smaller movement they creak too much. The noise from the street is too high, don't know why, maybe the glass plates on the windows are too thin.
Ok hostel, staff is nice and helpful, location not bad (right at the train station). Room is big, but very old and creaky. Very noisy hostel since walls are apparently made of cardboard, and bed quite uncomfortable. The owner, although nice, is the heaviest smoker I have ever seen - there isn't a second a day you'll see him without a cigarette. Hence, the smell in the hostel is unbearable - smoke reeks through every crack and corner. If this doesn't bother you as much as it did us you'll be fine
I stayed only one night. The location is just 700 meters from the train station if you travel to the railway station is an ideal place for little money. Free wi-fi, towel and place is clean.
