Everything was broken. The toilets were broken, the windows were broken, the doors to the room were broken - secured by a padlock. Even the electric kettle in the kitchen didn't work. The room was smelly and there was mold on the ceiling. The reception is in a different building far away. Terrible experience.


I travel extensively and stay in hostels, this was the worst hostel I have ever stayed. -Location: it close to center but still 20-30 minutes walk. There are other better options near the center - Staff: They were never at the reception, I had hard time finding them - Atmosphere: Very dirty, toilets were really dirty, with no toilet papers. out of two restrooms, one was broken. There were tons of hairs in shower drain. Horrible - Cleanliness: not clean at all.Bedsheets were used


Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff. The manager was helpful and friendly.

We got a private three bedroom room, with a private toilet. The room was clean but it was extremely humid, it smelled like a cave. The people at the reception were very nice and helpful, and they gave us useful tips. We did not stay much at the hostel, and it did not look like an awesome place to socialize.


We had 200 Euros stolen from our luggage. The Hostel didn't have a safe or locker, so we had no alternative but leaving our money in our bags. We were on a private room, so the only people who had a key to it, except ourselves, were staff. When we told the owners about the incident, they were sympathetic but didn't do anything – they didn't so much offer us a discount for the rest of our stay. They basically shrugged off and told us to contact the police. We did, but obviously nothing came of it

Estimado Não tiveram direito a qualquer reembolso ou desconto porque não havia prova do roubo. Esta decisão foi tomada de acordo e com o conhecimento das autoridades . Como os Senhor bem sabe não estava sozinho no quarto, sempre afirmaram que não tinham dinheiro liquido ( ao chegar pagaram a conta com cartão visa pois não tinham dinheiro), de repente já faltava o mesmo valor pago pela reserva !!! NUNCA pediram para guardar na recepção fosse o que fosse. Cumprimentos.
