Good location and decent bar and restaurant. Staff were friendly and the place was clean. Hot water in the showers, although they were a bit far from our room. Generally pretty good place.
Friendly staff welcomed us and gave us a free coffee on arrival in the adjacent café. Would have to agree with other reviews that the hostel was more like a house than an actual hostel, but this was a positive for us as we were given a double room rather than a form bed for the same price. Unfortunately breakfast was not included as advertised.
Pros - good location, quite cheap, friendly staff, some facilities like free pool table although not in good condition Cons - a bit dirty, cold water only - which also seemed to be dirty, a bit run down, breakfast included but not as advertised on hostelworld - the description stated a breakfast including eggs would be served not the usual stale bread and butter - but it was the latter.
We stayed here during the world cup so we expected it to be busy, but when we got there the first thing we saw was an argument between the hostel owner and another traveller who had been asked to sleep on the floor because the place was overbooked and had been all week. We were lucky to get our beds! Additionally the sheets we were provided with for our dorm were either filthy or still wet and there were not enough showers for the number of people staying (also the bathrooms didn´t have locks).
