You get what you pay for. The staff were helpful and friendly despite a very long wait to check in even though I arrived between the requested hours. Dorm door didn't lock properly and floor was undergoing renovations so showers were a challenge. Too bright in the rooms. Need curtains. Got locked out of my floor a couple times and never anyone available to help. Super noisy when there is anyone in the street which is pretty much always unfortunately.


The hostel is located near a club so it can be quite noisy at night. The cleanliness of the hostel was okay if you are only staying for a few days. The toilets can be a bit dark and the toilet rolls ran out very quickly. It will be good if the hostel has a regular cleaner to clean up the toilets.


The worst hostel ever! I wanted to change it the moment I saw the 'bathrooms' - disgusting, filthy, smelly, never cleaned. I was afraid to catch some disease there. The kitchen - as disgusting as the toilets. I booked 4 nights but stayed only 2. I don't recommend it to anyone! There are other, much better hostels at the same price.


No indication for the entrance door. You need to pay cash. When you arrive they give you a key for a locker but you don't know which one is your. We tried to find our locker and when we finally find it, it was already occupied by someone else. In fact they don't really know which key they are giving you. We found out that all the key was in a creepy room all mix together and also in this room was all the sheets for the beds everywhere on the floor so you don't know if it clean or not.


- Dirty bathrooms - One shower with a blinking light all the time - The toilet cistern was 2 tim broken - The kitchen was most dirty place ever. garbage all over the floor and looked like people never wash - One day there was not warm water in the shower - Rooms also very dirty and a lot of broken stuff. Looks like all furniture are 4 hand. - No curtains on the window. - Just one working bulb in the room and without switch, just a plug. - The blanket given by the hostel is very thin.

Very welcoming, The staff work very hard to keep everyone satisfied.


Friendly staff, but very difficult to reach. You'll be better off paying slightly more for a better quality hostel.

The only plus of this hostel is location. The room was very dirty: the floor and furniture covered with dust, garbage from previous guests under the bed. Bed linen of poor quality.

Great location


friendly staff! got invited to a christmas dinner with other long-term residents. really enjoyed my stay there!


It's quite good hostel but It's hard to find someone to check-in or check out or when you book 4 people dorm, you wake up with 8 people :)
