    Really good for that price .we dont care so much about the it was worth it. Otherwise a lot of moist and mold on the walls inside the room . And dirty bathroom and showers but we didn't use them. The breakfast is bad. It is like a small piece of bread that it is fresh . Some jam and some butter....but there is enough and free coffee and its a great start for the day. The staff is skeaking fluently English and we loved them . There are some vending machines for snack in good p

    There was no soap anywhere, including in the toilets to wash your hands. Location was fine, bare minimum essentials. Required to pay for bed sheets towels. Breakfast is bread and butter and coffee.

    The only good thing about this hostel was the location…everything else was disappointing. Rooms are very old and feel like jail cells; they don’t provide bedding (and it’s not mentioned ANYWHERE in your booking) so you have to pay €4 for some old cotton sheet that meant to serve as duvet. I have travelled all around the world and this is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in :/ even 3rd world countries had better hostels than this

    There was mold all over the hostel. Every room smelled like mold. The breakfast was a single piece of bread and some jam. They had school at the same time so at 8 in the morning I was woken up by school children.

    Reserved one night and travel plans changed, called reception and they said they won’t charge me the remaining amount if I email about a cancelation. They ended up charging me anyways, $60. Really disappointed with their service.

    The photos are nothing like the actual hostel. The rooms and toilets and showers were filthy, the staff were very uninviting. The noise level every night was atrocious and the staff did nothing to ask people to be quiet after hours, this hostel is so yucky, 10/10 would not recommend
