On an overall we were very happy to stay here. The hostel was near empty when we were there so there was hardly anyone in the kitchen and no noise. Kitchen was great as well, it felt just like a home.


ill definitely stay again

Wifi is bad on the first floor, also need to have an iron in the hotel...besides that everything is good


Absolutely disgusting! Go to another hostel! Nothing is clean. Doors are not locked. No dishes in the kitchen. Holes in the mattress. I had a really bad allergic reaction after few hours in this room.


Nice place, good location, for the price you pay it worth it. The place is not sparkling but they try too keep it clean.

The bed was not done even at my arrival so I had to wait to get it done first even though I arrived at 02:00pm instead of 10:00am.
