This is a great hostel, especially for its value! The staff is very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and I booked a private room and for just 11 euros per person per night we even had a private bathroom with bathtub, clean towels every day (for free), free bedlinen (changed once a week) and free wifi. The location was very good, with everything (supermarkets, historic center) in walking distance. Very positive about this hostel, especially compared to other hostels!

it was fungi in every room. we wanted to change the room and they put us in an other fungi room. I think every room looks like this. Wet & fungi there.. Dont go people, there are several hostels in middle of the old city. Just take the metro there and pay the 2 euros more per night. its worth it. we didnt slept on the beds cos they were dirrty. fortunately we had sleeping bags from our camping trip. As someone who travelled a lot of places. This was the worst ever. EVER. Disgusting.

Dear Customer, As you know all was perfect until we kindly ask you to do not disturb the other guests with your noise ....... Fights, alcool, noise, all together disturb a lot . I hope for a next time you realise that you are not alone or in apartment .


Very nice and helpful staff! Could have stayed longer if the room wouldn't been so cold..


The staff was very kind and helpful.The kitchen well equipped,the location very good.If it wasn't for the drunk american girls shouting in front of the hostel one night it would be perfect.We had a room for 3 people and got our own bathroom so it was like we were in a hotel.
