We paid for 2 people, there was only one pillow (we were given another pillow when told) and a supposedly double bed (not even the width of two pillows side by side). The room was tiny absolutely no room for manoeuvre.


No washing machine, kitchen was not well equiped ( there was neither pans, dish soap nor basic equipment as salt or oil)

The directions for how to get to the hostel were poor! It just says that it's a two minute walk from the station, nothing about what direction to walk in, no sign in or outside the station of where to go.

The room was very small with a circular window with no views at all. Besides, in some parts of the room we couldnt be standing.

Going from the front desk to the location of the room through several staircases with luggage was very trying. The floor in the room was decorated with cigarette burns. The clerk did not authorize a telephone call from the desk with reversed charges. The neighboring rooms were very noise even at 2:00 a.m.


The staff were very super professional & helpful. We liked the cleanliness of our room & the amenities. We loved our balcony view, but I would suggest they check these balcony access doors. Ours lock would not clip easily, and was faulty.


Very kind staff, but the appartement room we got was just a disgrace considering the price we had to pay.


the room was very dirty, the floors wasn't cleaned for sure few days.. the same with the kitchen and all the dishes. the duvets weren't very nice too.. During our stay / which was 4 days, we only get a bin bags changed, however no towels changed and at least the floors cleaned at all! when leaving to check out / they don't even asked you how was the stay. also our room was non-smoking and the whole bathroom smelled so bad from cigarettes we asked on the reception to get it sorted /it wasn't..


the private room in apartment was nice but the room was really too small, tiny and there was no space for all the luggage; overall the hostel was not bad

Great apartments, very clean, minimalistic design. The only con are the bedroom doors as they offer no privacy within the apartment (clear glass doors) and also the double beds are very noisy.


There should be more information about the hostel and the facilities that it will be provided, for instance, internet and kitchenware.
