Stayed in room 5 for one night, had bed bugs everywhere. Then stayed in room night for another night, it was fine.

Hello, thank you for your review. We have looked into this and we've completed numerous thorough cleaning in room 5. So far, so good, we've received no complaints on this :)


Crazy and Fun.

Hello there, We're glad that you were having a great time ;) We welcome you here anytime :)


The cleanest hostel I`ve ever been to!! Love it! Excellent value for money. However my bed was a bit noisy which disturbed other people at the room if I moved...

Hello, thank you very much for your kind words! Here at Transit we pride ourselves to maintain the highest possible standards for all of our guests :) It was a pleasure having you, we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future :)


During the first days of our visit the hostel was not clean as the owner was on vacation. Once she came back it became much better.

Hi there, we are a little bit confused about your comment. The owner has not been on a holiday for a while. We're not sure where you received the information from that the owner was away. Regardless, everyone at our hostel always conduct the same routine of cleaning on a daily basis, so we're not too sure what you're commenting on. Thanks anyway for your comment.
