I would like to review my stay, however I wouldn't really call it much of a stay seeing as when we arrived there was in fact no room for us in the hotel, even though we had booked! We arrived in the middle of the night and we were four young girls. Being told you have no room, in a location you don't know at all was very scary and worrying. The hotel offered no alternatives and were unhelpful in this situation, they even laughed at our situation. They didn't even help us with an alternative.

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.
