this hostel is in a pretty good location. I only really dealt with one of the staff members and she was friendly (blonde lady) the beds in this hostel worriers average. the beds squeaked like crazy every time you move which is hard when you don't know the person below you. the mattresses were also covered in plastic which was weird. bathroom downstairs desperately needs a shower curtain. everything wad soaked in there after showering including the toilet.
The girl at the reception was super-friendly, but she seemed not to have that much of knowledge about the city/area! Other than that it was perfect :)
Only one shower would work at a time if at all, downstairs shower needs a curtain, but quite often you end up in a cold shower. Staff weren't very nice one staff member seemed annoyed whenever you asked her anything and was often rude in response, she was constantly making upstair smell of smoke and just spent days watching shows on a laptop. on our last day we delt with a blonde woman with the remains of pink in her hair and she was lovely very helpful. Beds and room are spacious.
Stayed here two nights and both mornings there was no hot water so I couldn't shower. When the water was fixed, only in one shower, the showerhead was broken so only a trickle of water could come out. Staff were apologetic but didn't offer solutions. Kitchen was grubby. Beds were wrapped in plastic wrap so it was like sleeping in a shopping bag. Location was great. Staff were friendly.
The staff was really nice and helpfull. We arrived very late and needed a taxi very early in the morning - they organized both for us. I can clearly recommend this hostel.
