What a great place to stay. Absolutely wonderful. Staffs are fantastic. always helpful and not only that some of them were partying with us. Ample place and option to mingle with others in the hostel. Breakfast was very good and there was a special breakfast during Easter weekend. I will certainly recommend this hostel and will live there again if I am around.

Very well placed and Staffs are very helpful. Excellent environment, All borders get enough space to get along. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Staffs were ready to help and make all comfortable going out of the way. I will recommend the hostel 100% and will live there if I go there again. Only issue is you have to climb up 3rd floor as there is no lift.

Location was great. And Cleanliness is exceptionally good. But Facility was average. No option for cooking other than a microwave. Staffs are very helpful. What I did not like is in a 6 bed room without even informing they out a 7th bed and made one more person to stay while the room was not big enough to accommodate another. This is very unprofessional. Other than that things are good.

Excellent Location, Clean and fantastic environment. Staffs are mostly helpful but it will be unfair if I do not mention one name Andi. She is so helpful and so well behaved that just talking to her it will make your day. Ask for any possible help she will try to help. God bless her. Breakfast was basic like cereal and bread. Two days I found there is no bread in the table and the guy was so casual and careless about the fact. Other than that it is good place to live.

Excellent hostel. Clean, 2 min walk from the Metro station. Friendly staff. Try to help always. Two things I did not like - there is no free internet. as mentioned in the advertisement.. they charge. And the net connection is not good always. Secondly the check out time is 10 am but check in time is 02PM. if you reach early they will not allow you. to get in even if room.bed is available. the room service cof cleaning does not come till 03PM. Otherwise everything is spot on. I will recommend.

This is one of the best hostels I stayed. The staffs are so friendly and helpful that I surprised sometimes. The staffs are mixing up with everyone that sometimes it was hard to differentiate who is staff and who is staying there like us. In one occasion I had shortage of money and my card was not working in the bank as it was bank holiday there, One of the staffs( so far I remember Francisco) collected money from other and gave me in exchange of Pound starling. It is the best hostel indeed.

Good hostel close to one Metro station and Sambadrom. But for all other reason one has to go near Copacabana area including city tour etc. The staffs are helpful but they are not quite informed with what is happening in the city and how to avail those. However they try their best to find it out for you. There is no computer kept for internet usage as mentioned in the facilities. I did not like their demand for half of the total money in advance by western union or threatened to cancel booking

Hey, thanks for your review! We do not say that we have computers, even thou we do have an ipad only for guests. About the 50% it's for big events only, and it's written on the website, so if guests don't feel comfortable with this rule they know before booking it. About the city tour, since we are near sambodromo, the close the street for carnival and it's about the tour company they changed this year, we are looking for new companies to do the tour. Cheers!

The overall experience exceeds my expectation. Location, security, helpful staff, cleanliness everything 100 out of 100. Breakfast is average. Rooms are too small for number of beds in the dormitory. Two things they should seriously consider - Hostel direction in the website and putting at least one table and chair in each room. It is of course good value for money and great atmosphere. I would like to stay there again.

Joanna and Carmeu whome i dealt with most of the time, both are excellent person, very helpful. Did everything what they could. Never say no. Do things going out of the way for hostellers. Nandes and Drmas were also very good. I will strongly recommend this hostel and will stay there next time. Good location and all facilities that one can think in a budget hostel. Very clean, secure and above all very friendly staff

Two Persons in the reception Tarik and Yeysrl. Tarik was helping for every thinbg that I was asking but bit annoyed about asking many questions. telling you have too many question. Though it may appear as a joke but they should understand that many questions would not be asked if answers are given clearly and in details. People who do not speak Turkish or from a more organised countries like west Europe may feel problem initially. Otherwise behaviour of Tarik was good

It is a fantastic experience over there. Bit difficult to locate it for the first time but it is in a very good location. the staffs are just more than helpful. I never felt like I am in a hostel rather it was staying with few friends at their place. Name any staff -Nick, Dasa all are so friendly. During the May 9 parade, Nick took me all the way to the place where it can be viewed Otherwise it won’t be possible for me alone. They are helpful up to that level. Next time I will stay there.

Good location most of the facilities are paid. Paid is ok but no one tells you when you arrive what all you can do. Good smiling and helpful staff. No lockers. There is some space under the bed but you have to carry your own padlock

Good location. Close to all attractions. Very helpful and friendly staffs. They helps all possible ways they can. Specially the night guard KIM. Security is also good. Best thing is they offer free pasta in the kitchen any time you want. Only thing is you have to prepare it. Also provides breakfast. More then enough in this price. Well secured, free internet, helpful staff, clean, good location and good price. What else one can think of. If I visit Stockholm again will stay there.

Avrage location. Very busy hostel. No one has much time to talk other then booking and hostel related issues. Staffs are not helpful at all. No fun or organised activity from the hostel. Security is your own responsibility, though they have modern lock and key systems for the doors. In mid of the night I was asked to go to one room and find bed which is free. And it was a bad experience to get a free bed to sleep in an alien place. They do not have any bed number nor have proper accountablity.

Very close to the westbahnhof station. But the hostel is in separate location from hotel and looks less secure. No staff will be available in the hostel and in the hotel also no one after 09PM. None of the toilets and bathroom has hand wash (soap). Staffs are good and helpful though.

Excillient location. Helpful staff. But the dormitory room was unorganised. No towel/soap. During rain water was licking through the roof. Only one shower for all the dormitories that too in the ground floorand rooms are on the 2nd. No wash basin in the toilets. Typical French breakfast dry bread with butter and tea/coffee. Overall average

View Property Reply

Dear customer, I was disappointed to read your review, just to clear a few things up, we do provide towel for free in the dorm rooms with private bathroom, for the cheap dorm room at 15 euro the bed linen is provided for free but the towel and soap cost 1extra euro. You forgot to mention that the breakfast also contains a croissant, that comes with the quarter of a baguette, butter and jam, and a jug of hot drink of your choice such of tea/coffee/or hot chocolate. All the rooms have wash basin in them, only the toilet downstairs also as a sink. About the rain the French Riviera has suffered from unprecedented storms we have never witnessed before, therefore the leak caught us by surprise as much as it did you, most of the business on the Coast have been obliterated so in retrospect, we were lucky although I am sorry for this inconvenience. Best regards, Marie-Pierre ARNAUD

Very close to Railway station but address and �how to come to hotel� is so confusing that it will take may be half a day to find it unless you take taxi. Hotel staffs are very good and helpful. The rooftop cafeteria is cool. Can think of visiting again as the room rent is also very less compared to the facility (very basic though) and location. Must tell to the hostel people to give proper address and direction to the hotel.
