    The hostel staff were very friendly and always helpful, we were able to get in early and leave our bags at the end of the stay. Comfortable bed and bathroom in the bedroom. Aesthetically it's not the prettiest hostel, however we didn't have any problems.

    An amazing mansion that attracts the more adventurous. Not for the dull at heart. Think post-hippie and academic reprobates and you get the idea. Add A few drop-outs. The White Butterfly is an inclusive place for those who have a sense of humour. Bathrooms are not spotless but there are others dotted about this labyrinth. Expect your fridge food to be nibbled, otherwise security is good. You will have interesting conversations.

    The hotel's location is great, very close to the city center. However it is located in a noisy area. The room and the toilet were not totally clean!

    If you can hack it, you should stay here but be warned it’s quite intense. There’s no keys/locks at all which was fine as the environment was safe but it was quite unnerving when we first arrived. It was worth it considering the price & once you get into the mood of it, the hostel can be a sweet place - but not for the faint hearted ! Great place to just rest your head but not so good for chilling out.

    The location is great however , there’s noise in town until at least 2:30 am . The place is relatively clean . The staff was our biggest disappointment as their behavior was rather hostile more than anything else which was a bummer . All ages are allowed at the hostel but there’s people there who need actual help , there was an old man sleeping next to me who was bleeding daily on his bed which was quite alarming . Nonetheless I didn’t feel like my security was in scrutiny .

    We were a mixed group of friends and booked quite spontaneously 6 beds in a mixed dormitory. We checked in quite late what was comfortable but at the reception they told us that they don't have beds left in the mixed one. So we needed to split what was quite s**t especially because we booked something different and they didn't tell us before. The bathroom and kitchen was quite dirty. And the men dormitory horrible! The only nice thing was the small yard and that it was in the centre!

    The beds weren’t marked properly so nobody knew which bed was being used or not. Hostel staff should tell people which bed they can use. My bed was taken while I was away during the day. Also the facilities were dysfunctional. The toilet seat isnt installed well so it falls over/doesn’t stay up while you use it. Bunk beds are super rickety. There’s trash in the hostel that should be cleaned.

    It is really dirty, not sure if the sheets were changed, and the bathroom toilet seats/showers are disgusting/need to be changed.

    The hostel is filthy, I was disgusted by that, I could not even cook in there. Most of the guys staying there were very old man (one of whom looked like as being around 85yo). The guy sleeping close to me was mentally ill, one day I arrived and he was in my bed, I then asked to switch rooms, but this one was not good also because I was unable to sleep because of the noise on the street (people partying).
