    The stuff was really friendly and helped you with everything. The dorm was a little bit small but it was comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could need; the bathroom was pretty wet all the time but not a big problem. The best thing about it is its location and the rooftoop!! Besides, people who host there were really friendly too. It was a great experience.

    Very Good

    Dorm rooms were basic. Toilets were okay. Really nothing special in this hostel although the common area was well curated. There was a small kitchen but I hope they had put there free coffee/ tea and sugar for the guests which is not too much, really. Wifi was only available in the Common Area. If you want a place to stay in the Old City, and are not expecting too much, this hostel is fine.

    Very Good

    Staff was nice. Bathrooms smell unfortunately but that might be normal for old buildings. Pretty old facilities but nice Charme. Kitchen and bathrooms very poorly equipped. There are 2 cups for everybody. No locked storage area for baggage. Only small lockers for personal values, but if you check out early and want to leave your bag, you just put it on the floor in a hallway. I was offered to store my laptop in the reception but also that was not locked and everybody could have taken it.

    Its a "low-budget" hostel. The ceilings are low, the wifi signal isn't great everywhere, the toilets are small, the kitchen is tiny, the showers are few and inconvenient, but the location is great, the common area is charming and the staff are helpful, so it depends what you are prioritizing.

    Staff are of little help. Toilets are small, and a bit c**p. Hostel was pretty empty when I was there so I was fine but otherwise number of toilets would be small. I was in the 4 bed dorm (room #1) and WiFi does not reach there at all. Kitchen is on the other end of the building. Cleanness is average. The citadel hostel is well located, but otherwise I would describe it as simply inconvenient. I defo won’t stay there again.

    The location is amazing, right in the old city. But otherwise, this place is extremely lacking. I understand it's an old building, but the shower/toilets are filthy and cramped and need to be heavily upgraded. No keys or locks on the dorm room doors, low ceilings everywhere and I hit my head at least 10 times. My bed wasnt really 'made' when I arrived. There was just a crumpled pillow and a stack of communal blankets in a pile to choose from.
