There's s need for more people working. The whole place is too dirty. We had to wait hours to check-in even sending a notification a day before our arrival.

No plate on the door showing the hostel. Old&trashy interior. Needs to climb the ladder to get to the living floor from the reception. If you're aged - be very careful.Microwave oven on the kitchen was broken. No staff on the reception was available to address that. Refrigerator for short term stayers-small. Bed sheets old and with holes. No towels were given. Not enough cups on kitchen. Noise isolation of room from other areas - none. Earplugs are the must. Garbage bin - never emptied in 24h.


Friendly super helpful staff. The place has a fun grungy feel. Loud on the weekend. Great location, right in a good part of the old town. Would visit again!


A bit hard to find. The info on Hostel World about check-in times contradicts reality. No, the place isn't squeaky clean, but what can you expect for such a small price? The owner is very friendly and knowledgeable; the location is excellent. Yes, I woke up every 30 minutes until 7:30 AM because of hysterical yelling and loud music from below, but I guess I probably should have expected that. I would probably stay there again because the pros slightly outweigh the cons.


The staff is all very friendly, but also at times hard to find. The location is great (right in the middle of Old Town), but the hostel itself is very hard to find, and there could really be better directions given on the website. The bathroom facilities are sub-par. One of the toilets was broken, and the shower was dirty. When we asked for towels, we were given one damp towel for the four of us (I don't know if this is a regular occurrence). All that being said, the atmosphere was great.

Centre of the city,in the heart of old town.place is clean and in overall very nice place to stay especially if you are on budget,price for value is great!in the weekends the hostel bar is also open,and most of the times it's full until morning,the drinks also are very cheap!beer start from 2€.and also the other bars in sauna street keeps playing music until morning,so it can be little bit noisy in weekends.but for this price nobody can expect things to be perfect


I had my best private ever in this wonderful hostel. The locations was perfect:close to the main sights and there's a cool club 50 meters from the entrence. There's a cozy bar at the reception where some random parties happening with some nice people.I have noticed that people were complaining about nonsense things.Always keep in mind that as nince you are to other people as nice they are going to be to you If you wanna get your arsh shiny go to a hotel.

It was more than dirty. Toilets and showers DISGUSTING. not Bathrooms, only one little sink in the toilett. extreme STINKY. the bedlines were smelly and dirty. There was loud music and party all night, until 7:30am! even after asking to be silent, no reaction! And the so called Manager, was the most impolite and rude person ever! That's never happened to me before! a hostel manager who is offending and being rude to guests.
