    Such a fun hostel! The staff is super friendly and helpful, everything is clean, and the free breakfast (bread, jams, coffee, eggs) is pretty good. Every night they provide rakia or beer, which really brings everyone together. It's a social hostel, but not a crazy party hostel, so you can meet a ton of great people but still get a good nights sleep. The drinking isn't pushed on you either, so you can feel very comfortable if you want to join or not. Would 110% recommend and stay again!

    Excellent hostel and friendly staff willing to help you. There is an alcohol event (rakija or beer) every night which helps on meeting the other guests. Always again! :)

    We LOVED this hostel! Staff was absolutely wonderful and accommodating, always eager to help with suggestions and directions. The room was clean and spacious, location right in the heart of everything. The common room was comfortable and spacious, ideal for gathering every night with fellow travellers celebrating the hostel’s beer or Rajka nights! We met so many wonderful people there. Highly suggested!

    Very nice stay, nice big lockers and really helpful staff. We arrived early and they were happy for us to stay and use the communal facilities! Bunk beds didn’t have sides though which could be a problem if you’re prone to moving around in your sleep!

    The location of hostel is strategic, with the nice concept dedicated to Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The staff was great and helpful. I've enjoyed my time here with fellow travelers that stayed here.

    The hostel is well placed. Maybe this is one of the only positive things about it. A bad experience was to have hot showers interrupted suddenly by cold water. But the staff, with the exception of one only guy, is probably the worst part about it. My impression was of a team dulled by time, where the clients became theleast important in the business. I witnessed one of them practically shouting to a guest because he held his cigarette in his hand inthe kitchen— he was leaving to smoke outside :(
