room was clean and nice enough. water in the shower goes from hot to cold and back again every 10 seconds - not unexpected considering the low room cost. bar and common area were great for meeting new people, socializing, partying. receptionists were nice and helpful. would come back again!
by far the best hostel i've stayed at. the staff was friendly, polite, knowledgeable, and professional - a rare combination of qualities in any and especially a hostel staff. Olena seemed genuinely happy to help the guests and always gave me 100% of her attention. Rene and Sam were extremely easy to talk to and made me feel at home as soon as I walked in. the other receptionists i talked to could answer all of my questions and more. basically, best customer service experience i've had. kudos!
had a 3-night stay here. loved the bar and common area. it was extremely easy to meet people, great for solo travelers. can find a party here every night, but i wouldn't recommend the basement dance floor at the hostel. gotta go out for clubbing. the rooms were nice enough though ventilation in the shower could be better. location was great, only a 5-minute walk to the metro with good pizzeria, cafe, tobacco shop, supermarket, bus stop, and fruit stand nearby. would definitely stay here again!
