Looks like a hospital. You have to get out everyday before 10:00 AM for cleanness, they keep asking for silence all day (like in a hospital). Not that far from city centre, but need to catch the bus whereever you want to go. Place is clean but has no atmosphere. Need to improve a lot as a hostel.


This accommodation has big lockers, clean rooms, warm water.What is essential were good! But there is some weaknesses no Wi-Fi, there are few options of breakfast but it is still good. And it is not at city centre. But if you know these weaknesses I would recommend that.


No internet in rooms

Dear guest, we apologize for lack of connection in rooms. The malfunction was due to a wi-fi device that has been now replaced!


Very basic facilities (there's a laundry room, which is good, but no kitchen or micro-wave), really nothing to blame there but just good to spend a night before hitting the road again. Not expensive, but could be a little cheaper based on the lack of atmosphere, fun, warmth and practical stuff.
