Showers and toilets are not cleaned daily and also the kitchen was kinda dirty. The floor in the kitchen was sticky. It is pretty cold inside and a heater is turning off so often. You have to labeled your food but there are no labels and in the fridge was the air more warm than in the kitchen. You can not drink and eat in the dorm rooms. Eat I understand, but drink. Sorry I will not go out from the room with every drop of water which I need to drink especially in the night.


The place is dirty, cold and the kitchen has almost no utensils

The whole place was freezing, there were no heaters anywhere and in order to sit at the (so called) living room, you had to wear your coat and a hood. You can only access the internet from the freezing living room. There is no hot water in the bathrooms until 9am so you have to wait that long to take a shower. The hostel is located up a steep hill so if you have heavy luggage, you will suffer all the way up the hill. There is no staff whatsoever except for a person after 9am behind a window
