Great hostel, lovely and helpful staff, love the location. The bar is fantastic, especially as a solo traveler as I found it really easy to meet other travellers and locals. I would definitely stay here again


The main reason for my booking was the clubs underneath the hostel and the party atmosphere, which was great and is worth it if you want to party. But if its a good night sleep you want you will not get it until 3am. The staff at check-in and especially the nigh porter was friendly, the one at check out not so much. I didn't use the rest of the facilities apart from my room and toilet which seemed OK... until morning. Oh and there was a really moldy mattress in my room... which is just sad :/


I didn't enjoy my stay at all. There was some festival just under my window with loud music till 3am. Moreover hostel was pretty dirty with no lockers in rooms.


Overall it is quite good hostel, yet I would not recommend it for those who want to get normal sleep. The hostel is part of a bar or something like that, so it is noisy and when people come back at around 3am the doors, floors, beds are shaking somehow. But the hostel is cosy, big beds, nice interior.

i loved the place


it was brilliant would stay again


If you're not into toilets that haven't been cleaned, showers with pubes, hair and cotton buds on the floor, extremely terrible loud grungy music underneath you until 3am, staff who are just rude and only want your money, the bar toilets downstairs smelling and flooding, springs in your back from every angel on the bed and odd stares from random people outside ... Then I suggest you DO NOT STAY HERE. IF you love all of the above - then this place is the place to be!

The staff didn't look at me once while checking in or out, pretty unpolite. the rooms and bathrooms were in a poor state, the kitchen pretty dirty. the music from the bar downstairs was so loud that it was absolutely impossible to sleep before 2am. won't go again.

The hostel is in fact a disco with si she bar and a very nice terrace, nice prices so If you're going to go out is good for sleep one night, if you are drunk you'll sleep with the disco music beating in your room, if you're going to visit the city and stay around is not the enter place for stay,

Really dirty and not well organised.


Everything is nice,the staff and the room facility.I will consider to come again,


Wish I could give this a higher rating because Patrick in reception is awesome!! Super friendly and helpful. The hostel itself is below average especially for the price. Water was warm, not hot. Wifi was not great. They have a kitchen which is nice. Room was pretty good.


Lively, fun place. Nice staff & guests. Not recommended if you want a quiet night but a great place if you want to have fun and meet people.


I stayed in hostels before, but never seen anything that dirty. Close to the bus station but that's not enough.


The staff was at times not so helpful or polite at reception and we hardly slept at all due to crazy loud music in the bar downstairs and the nearby disco. The toilets and bathrooms are quite dirty, the kitchen is really dirty.
