    Fabulous

    07 Dec 2018
    Great and unique hostel. Location is perfect, but you shouldn't be too sensitive about noises because you might hear the party sounds of Metelkova at weekends. It was renovated recently so everything is very new. Great safety, friendly staff. Bathrooms are new but could have been cleaner (very clean when we arrived at friday, not so much on saturday). We desperately missed extra hooks or space for stuff in the bathrooms, a squeegee would have been useful as well. Would come back!

    Fabulous

    08 Dec 2018
    Very cool atmosphere, and good hangout rooms to meet people. Unfortunately, the main hangout room was frequented by a group of 2-3 men who I do not believe were actual guests at the hostel. They made me and other guests uncomfortable, and the staff was aware of the problem, as a staff member confronted the group and asked them to leave. They didn’t actually leave and we’re back the next day. they had a bit of a threatening and aggressive presence. Follow through on asking them to leave!!
