    The hostel was great, personable staff, clean, great vibe and awesome location. Only down side due to the central location you’re susceptible to the city noise.

    Stayed in different rooms. Premium dorm is not worth the price to me. Got extra pillow, towel and bed is made. AC was not on the period i stayed in such a room (but no other availability). Only 2 elevators, long wait for them on 11th floor or take stairs. Could have chosen different floor for the premium dorm for the premium price. Complained enough, it's not breaking your bank account. Good place to meet people, free breakfast/ pastarice/tea/coffee. Friendly staff, clean, super location!

    Internet was pretty poor and bathrooms was cleaned at like 8:45 in the morning, not really the best time to do that. Other than that a decent hostel with very good atmosphere!
