The shower is a button in the wall. Once you press it the water streams for 30 seconds. And that's it. Then you need to press again. Of course the temperature changes every time. Am not sure it was the worst shower ever, but very close by. I had no idea I was so flexible as to take the shower while pressing a button behind my back with one hand, showering with the other and trying to hold things in ... don't even know what( of course there are no hooks).

There was a nice volunteer guy to let me in, but no one in the check out. There is no luggage room, no locks in the doors. A person who came up with bunk beds should spend the rest of his life on a bunk bed. Guess good value for money - it is the cheapest place in town

The stuff were friendly and helpful. The a/c worked fine, the shower and sheets were clean. For some reason there was no soap and they kept telling they would bring some, which didn't happen. Wish they told us so - there are enough places nearby to buy some. The lift didnt work (we didnt care), the street is very noisy. but the room was quiet. The gut at the reception helped us booking the tour to Ha Long Bay and was generally very helpful.

When I read the description I couldn't quite believe all the positive reviews. Apparently they are all true. The bunk beds are not my favourite, but otherwise it's great. 10 minutes walk from the Duomo, amazingly friendly stuff, good atmosphere, piano, guitars, clean showers, clean sheets etc.

The city tax is not included, unlike what is written. The guy was extremely helpful and nice, the place is lovely, the sheets and the towels smelled clean (which usually doesn't happen in hostels), the breakfast was great. Just lovely

24 hours reception is a lie. I explicitly emailed the hostel saying I would come in the middle of the night and received an email it was no problem. A very grumpy old guy hardly agreed to open a door claiming the check in was till 1am, refused to give us towels and made it sound we were lucky he let us in! The stuff during the day were very nice and helpful, gave a lot of good advice. The sheets were clean, the shower was clean, there was even soap and shampoo.

The ladies in reception were very helpful and nice. The room for 4 were normal beds (no bunk beds!), space and lockers. It's on the 4th floor, no lift, so if you have a heavy luggage - beware. The hit: their computers in the lobby run winXP and they use a mechanical mouse. Museum stuff. The wifi works great in the common area and in the rooms. The `give a 2nd life to the book' is hilarious- most of the books shouldn't have had the first life to begin with. Anyway, nice, clean, great location!

I stayed in the hostel for 2 nights in 2 different locations. Apparently they have a new part of the hostel. The new one smelled with paint and had no wifi and no kettle. Guess it was taken care of by now. The old one had 1 bathroom 1 shower and 1 toilet for everyone. There was a queue in the morning to the toilet. Not fun. The staff (Zita and Julia) were awesome. They did all they could to make me more comfortable, thank you ladies!

Very clean, the staff were nice and helpful. There is a small kitchen with tea. A very small place with 2 bathrooms (at least one was always free). Location - very close to the central rail station, botanical garden and not far from the old city.

Right across the street from the blue Mosque. The staff were very friendly, spoke very good English and were helpful. The room was clean, so was the shower and the loo. The hot water depended on who was taking a shower a floor below at the same time. I was lucky but the girl I was sharing the room with was telling horror stories (no idea whether they are true). Breakfast was nice, small towels were free, big ones for hire. WiFi worked fine both in the common area and in the rooms.

The first thing that greeted us was a sticker in the reception saying `support Gaza, boycott Israel'. Either boycott israelis and dont' accept my money or take the sticker down, dude. Otherwise it was very clean, the wifi worked great in the common room, breakfast was tasty, there was hot water in the shower every time we tried, the guy who spoke English was very helpful telling us where to go and what to see. Those who didn't speak English were still nice and helpful.

The location is perfect - walk down the stairs and you are in the independace square. The staff was helpful and quite nice (we spoke Russian, so not sure whether they know English). The shower slowly turns into a swimming pool in which you never wanted to swim at the first place. The room was tiny and suffocating, but ask for the airconditioner remote - it becomes allright

The location is perfect. Taking the shoes off at the entrance is annoying, but can see Pete's point. Having just 2 bathrooms (combined with toilets) meant we had to wait for 10-20 minutes every morning. The rest is great. The location, the staff (were very freindly and helpful, spoke good English), comfortable rooms (we had a room for 4). And the common room was all sorts of fun

A terrible dump, one of the worst places I've ever been. The rooms didn't lock, the shower and toilets were filthy, 2 nights out of 4 there was no hot water in the shower (with +2 outside and no smoking ban.) The stuff were friendly and spoke English, but for some reason I found myself translating when people needed something from the cleaning lady. Finding the place was close to impossible - see, there are 2 blue churches on that street and the one they mean is about a km away from the metro, not 500m

Very close to the museum, but not too close to the centre and the nightlife. The breakfast was good, the shower big enough with place to put / hang things with hot water and clean towels. Getting to the upper bed with no ladder is a bit tricky though:)

Beware: to leave the luggage after check out costs 1$ per bag per hour. Never heard of such a thing before, was slightly shocked. They didn't have hot water in the shower, which while temporary was still yet again, shocking.
