    Loved this hostel! The rooms and common areas are spacious and it never felt crowded — even though it was full. The shower and sink areas outside of the rooms were great. This is definitely one of the cleanest hostels I’ve stayed in... the staff kept up with the mess so well. Speaking of staff, they were extremely helpful and friendly! It was a little ways away from the MAIN area of town (20 minute walk, not bad) but there was a nearby bus and you’re given a free metro card!

    Really nice, clean hostel! Staff was friendly and helpful, the lockers were big, there was a shelf and plug for each bed, bathrooms were always clean, never had to wait for a shower or toilet. It's a very quick walk to the train station, only about 10 minutes. Nothing bad to say about this place at all!

    Our major concern was the lack of air conditioning. There is a heat wave going through Europe so I think it was out of character for it to be that hot. However, there was no room circulation and it was very hard to sleep even with the window open. We asked if they had a fan we could rent or something but they didn’t. Overall, it was a nice place I just would not stay in the heat of summer.

    Staff was helpful. Very close to a beach and relatively easy to get to old town city center. Rooms were very hot during a heat wave. Shower ran out of hot water.

    My overall rating can’t be higher as we had people standing outside our window smoking one night and terrible roommates one evening. The next night was better but no one told us the parks outside (although gorgeous and near the beach) are hotspots for local teens on the weekends who kept us up with their loudness and partying. Normally I would close the window but as this hostel has no A/C in the rooms that wasn’t an option. Recommend avoiding here if it’s the weekend. Was clean and good staff

    Very Good

    Very low water pressure and when I showered there was almost no hot water. They use their second kitchen as luggage storage which is fine if they actually kept it locked during the day. I witnessed numerous people going in and out of the “locked” kitchen when it was supposed to be closed. The smoking area is adjacent to the ground level rooms so if you have the patio door open on a warm day you better like the smell of cigarettes cause that’s all you’re going to smell.
