Very atmospheric historic location. I stayed in 12 beds dorm. It's really huge, not crowded at all. Very cosy. Ensuite bathroom with several showers.
Home-like. If you are interested to get a glimpse into the life of people in Soviet block that's the right place. The place has that atmosphere. Location is very convenient. It's on restaurant walking-street. Inexpensive Chinese buffet nearby. Spectacular Applied Arts Museum is couple blocks away. Central market (touristic but beautiful) is nearby. Real bathroom (with bathtub), free laundry!
Staff is very friendly. If you are early, you can leave luggage for free. No soap in toilets or showers. No hot water in toilets. You always have to push a button for water to flow. No place for your valuables in shower. You have to dress somehow while standing with your feet 1 cm deep in water. Microwave does not work. Internet is very slow an hard to login. 3-4 power outlets for 8-10 people in room! Sliding doors in some rooms are confusing and noisy. Atmosphere is good only for party people.
It’s a bit expensive. Wifi didn’t work in my room. Sound isolation of my room from kitchen was very poor. Staff is friendly and good. Laundry is expensive. Location is pretty okay.
A bit far from center. You’ll have to use metro for everything. (Except St. Paolo basilica which is close and worth a visit). Wifi could be better. It wasn’t working some evenings. Showers could have hooks for your stuff! But the place is quite good. Home-like atmosphere, relaxed. Not crowded. Supermarket is 5 min walk. Would stay there if I’m on a budget.
