The beds were nice and the showers were clean but the staff was very loud and rude during the stay.

Hello and thank you for expressing your opinion. We are very sorry if you found some of our staff to be rude or loud. We have taken measures in finding out what happened and in improving this aspect as we care a lot about how our guests are treated and enjoy their time in the hostel. Thank you for appreciating our facilities and we wish you the best in your future travels.


Pretty basic hostel, but cheap and walking distance to the old town (where all the bars are).

Hello and thank you for your feedback. We don't think of ourselves though as a basic or average hostel. We are very close to the Old Town but in a quiet, nice area so our guests can rest as well as go out and party. We have good security with access cards for rooms and the hostel, lockers, a bar and terrace where guests meet people and enjoy great evenings, and all for really good prices. It was a pleasure hosting you and we wish you amazing travels!


Nice hostel close to the city center. Friendly staff and lots of facilities like table tennis, games etc. The only down point is the distance between the dorms and the toilets...


Me & my friend stayed here where we had a really good time. We met some great people who also were traveling to which we've all agreed to meet up again. The staff were very helpful & friendly, with a shout out in particular to Diana who put up with us 2 English guys talking nonsense after a lot of beers & always very helpful.


Enjoyed the hostel overall but a few things could do with some maintenance - a lot of the locks in the bathrooms weren't working, and this was especially annoying for the shower in the mixed bathroom next to room 23. Additionally, the same shower was a bit smelly - could use a bit of plumbing work. I think an s-pipe would do the trick!

Easy walk to old town. Beds are kind of old and squeaky. Lots of showers!! Outdoor space is nice as is the pub downstairs!


Bathrooms need to be cleaner and for some reason there is no hand dryer or napkins to dry hands.
