Very helpful staff, laid back hostel with a fun atmosphere. A big living room where people hang out and a nice kitchen where people often eat together, but nothing is forced on you, it is fine if you want to do your own thing and it is great if you want to join in. Overall it is a perfect hostel, one you hope to find upon your arrival
This facade of the building is under renovation which makes it very difficult to find. You have to take the first opening between the scaffolding as you're coming from the bus station and there's a small sign on a red door with the name. Besides getting lost trying to find it, this hostel is a really great value and looks like an old mansion inside. I'm not sure if this was just when I was there or all the time, but there seemed to be an abnormally high proportion of elderly guests..
Christian & Svitlana are excellent managers. Both have super personalities & are very knowledgeable about activities & attractions in the area. The hostel is like a nice home with large chandelieers in the great big living room & large bedroom. Nice comfortable furniture. Super place to stay.
Awesome place, could use an extra bathroom, but other than that it's great. Great staff, great residents. You won't be disappointed.
