Staff was friendly. One of the other residents stole my sneakers and my toiletries.

I like the service very much.


Unfortunately, I didn't have a good time at Twelve Towns. The rooms smell bad, you can't open the window. My bed was awful, I still have pains in the back from sleeping there last week. The people that live there, they are just WEIRD and rude. A few ladies were washing they underwear together with their cooking pans, or whatever, in the bathroom sink.


The staff were rude and wouldn't get off there cell phone while booking me in and the showers were cold. Wifi only in reception. Not much of a hostel
