The staff were all very welcoming and accommodating - simple breakfast is offered in the mornings (toast/jam and coffee, but what else do you need really) and they were more than happy to answer any questions or requests that I had. I was the only guest when I stayed, so I cannot comment on what the hostel is like when it is full. I would certainly return to this hostel, though!

This property literally didn't exist. We went to the address on the hostel world website and it was just an old apartment building. We repeatedly tried to call the number, as did our taxi driver, but no one picked up. Luckily there was a nice, cheap hotel nearby but either all of the wrong contact information was in the profile or this place doesn't exist.


Staff was extremly helpful and location is great. I really enjoyed this experience


Every stuff was kind,nice.But one stuff did not know about local information so much.


The challenge is to find the place. Small notices spray painted onto walls of soviet era blocks lead you to a flat. The welcome is good and it gives you a far better introduction to the place than you would get if you used a hotel.
