    Fantastic hostel for Minsk! Right in the Trinity neighborhood, so everything you need is close and the hostel will help you organize if you'd like to get out of the city. I would stay here again for Minsk for sure.

    Super friendly staff that helped make my stay in the hostel fantastic. Very well located, right in the old town and a short walk to the main bar area and the modern town. Room was very comfortable and clean and the facilities were perfectly fine.

    This was a very comfortable hostel, almost felt like staying in someone’s apartment! Very well located in a quiet area and close to the city centre, and only a 5-10 minute walk from Nemiga metro stop. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help when I unfortunately lost my bank card.

    Good hostel, great location, helpful staff. It was slightly confusing to find the first night but just go to the flashing light :-). I had booked 1 night but decided to stay for 2 and the staff were very helpful arranging that. They also booked a taxi for me for my departure. The hostel itself was good but not great - it had good character but the bed was very uncomfortable (could feel the springs in my back) and the facilities were basic. It’s located right on the water though which is Amazing

    The staff were very friendly! However, any interactions through reception took a really long time. The card machine didn't work, checking in seemed to take forever compared to anywhere else I've been and a lot of time was wasted waiting for reception to get through the customers. Despite this, the location was perfect and rooms, despite being a bit worn and torn, were clean; the cleaner was there like clockwork every day to keep everything in order.

    Lacking atmosphere. It would have been nice if there was some sort of social organised e.g. dinner or bar crawl. Lids on bins in bathrooms would have been nice too- esp as toilet roll cannot be flushed!

    First Staff couldn't find my website booking, then charged us more money than stated on my booking, then they only booked us for 1 night despite asking for 2, we only found this out the next morning when they tried to force us to pay the price of 2 nights for only 1. Staff were rude and had appalling customer service, threatened to call the police rather than allow us to pay the price that was quoted. staff are rubbish at their jobs, don't want to help, only rip you off and give bad service.

    Positives were location, adequate facilities and cleanliness. Check-in was slow and unorganised. Not given security key at check-in. Had to return later. Staff on check-in was a trainee, given no help when it was busy, despite other staff present. Booked day trip with hostel and wrong start time given. Staff were unapologetic. Policy of removing shoes not displayed at the door and again staff were quite rude about it. Inadequate common room space, so zero atmosphere.
