Christian & Svitlana are excellent managers. Both have super personalities & are very knowledgeable about activities & attractions in the area. The hostel is like a nice home with large chandelieers in the great big living room & large bedroom. Nice comfortable furniture. Super place to stay.

staff Irene did not speak English--but on phone Natalie did speak English. It would have been helpful if I was provided brochure at beginning instead of at end of stay as it gave info on map of Mc Donalds very close but I had no idea where it was until I discovered it as well as supermarket. Hostel needs screens as moisquetoes were attacking every night when trying to sleep. This was a HUGE problem SCREENs for windows are a basic necessity!!! Security lockers are needed as well.

Great staff--some of them are studying medicine--one examined my foot one time when a nail went through my boot. Impressive in the very large Grand Room that has super comfortable furniture for reading, talking, relaxing or surfing the web. Out the front door go right and grocery market is across street & to the left. For those that like to cook fresh food--go out the front door of building & walk 1 1/2 block & find super sized outdoor market about the size fof four football fields.

The owner Arisio & his super staff, Larisa were amazing. They are such helpful people they should be wearing wings :) Arisio & his lovely polish girlfriend put on a super duper extraordinary Huge Turkey dinner on Christmas eve--as U see I extended my stay. Arisio has increased the number of showers & toilets & the number of private rooms. It is close to train station which is a big plus.
