ı thınk thıs hostel ıs already closed for theır owner. staff just gıve us a dırty bad and wanted money. thats all. ı dont recommend to go there.


There were nobody around even to give out the keys. Even though the hostel was permanently open and keys were always at the desk so everyone could have an access to them. The hostel looked like it hasn't been cleaned for two years at least. Good location though, walking distance from old city.


Great place. Near to centar. Very secured. Fully recommend. See you gays soon.


Only stayed there one night, but it was a strange little hostel. Nobody was there when we arrived (it was not late) to give us keys or anything. We went out that night and just came back in without keys because you dont even need them to get in to the hostel or rooms as everything is open. Kind of sketch. The kitchen was dirty as well as the batthroom. The location is great though, located in right in the city center But I would not go back to this hostel


Not what i expected at all. No towels, no wifi, no welcome drink, no city map, no reading lights. The place is very dirty. The sheets were covered with hair and the bathroom hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Many people inhabit the apartment at once. The location is good, though. You can get downtown or to the train station walking (20-25min) The place is a bit tricky to find and the staff not encline to help you. Apparently the man who "runs" the hostel lives in it, kind of weird.


Great value for only 5 Euros a night! But there is a lack of lockers (just old cabinets that don't always lock) and the front door is always open, even when reception isn't around, so we were nervous about leaving our stuff. Wifi is great, staff is friendly and happy to tell you about the city. Bathroom and kitchen were clean, although kitchen is small and only one shower and one additional toilet for entire hostel (would be bad if hostel was full).


Small but very nice hostel. The guys are very helpful and welcoming. You can really feel home there! No complaints at all!!
