I chose this hostel because was the only one available for the New Year.The hostel is not in the main street but you have to walk along a very bad little street before to reach it.The hostel itself is not bad looking, but the room was on the first floor and was really cold. We asked for the heating system but the first night was broken and the others night it worked just for a few hours. Then, they didn't give us the blankets for the first two night! They forgot it!
Staff speaks really less English. Heater does not work. Warm water in the shower not available. Booked Room was also not available.
Found the Hidden Garden Hostel at the end of a dirty, dark alley. The lobby was nice, but we received bad directions from the receptionists twice. The room itself was horrible. The walls were covered in mold and the room was so damp that the bedding and any clothes left out felt damp by the end of the day. We tried to leave the fan going to air out the room, but the staff would come in and turn it off. Why they were in a private room to see the fan going when they don't clean is a mystery.
