Thank You


Spent 1/2 hour trying to get in (in -10 degrees this is not good!). Very hard to find as tiny A4 sign is all there is against a big metal door of the same colour. Staff dont speak much English. THEY DON'T REGISTER YOUR VISA. Rooms-drab, cramped, beds-old/small/uncomfortable. Kitchen-NO cutlery etc so can't cook.most people live here so strange unfriendly atmosphere. Bathrooms poor. Great location. Advertised 4th dorm night free-staff argued this was hostelworlds mistake&tried to make us pay.


Nice and helpful staff. The room was clean but the showers were in poor condition. Travel with ear plugs because the walls are made of paper. The coffee machine saved my life in the morning!:)


The beds are very small, foreign strange people come into your room- at night, too. The bathroom ist always wet. You have a kitchen, but too little cutlery and dishes. Almost nobody can speak in english.
