A good average hostel. The staff were nice contrary to the previous comments. Nice location on the fringes of the center of the town. They should really make an effort to properly ventilate/seal/clean their down stairs bathroom. It had a horrible molded smell. The floor was always covered in water because the shower leaked.


It was a nice place to stay and you sort of got what you paid for. Although it could have been a little better. The rooms bathroom looked kinda bad and the breakfast in the morning was so little. but other than that it was nice =)

The location was very good and the breakfast was okay. The staff made the place clean, but they seemed like they didn't want us to be there. The wifi was limited to a couple of rooms and it didn't always work. One of our rooms was really cold because the window didn't close. In our other room there was no pressure in the shower and you could only choose between icecold and really hot temperature. The door to the bathroom didn't close all the way so you could look straight into it from the bed.

The team was not friendly, the room very old, wet, very small. The bathroom not clean, toilet didn´t work. We were located on the down level, could hear the bell riging all night long, as long as people came back to the hotel. There was no place in the bathroom to put a towel or some clean clothes when you take a shower. The whole room was completely wet, didn´t have the feeling to be in a cleen room at all. I will definitely not come back.


It's a little inconvenient if we want to went back lately. Atmosphere is very important in hostel, specifically depending on staff's attitudes, I was a little upset in these days


Staying in the 12-bed dorm is definitely value for money. On the other hand, don't expect an actual palace. Facilities are rather basic, kitchen on the small side. Room was spatious and bathroom clean, hot water in the shower, always appreciated. No lockers in room, internet connection not so good, quite a lot of noise until the small hours.
