    Dormitory bed mattresses are bit thin, and it make me feel the hard wood under the mattress which made my sleeping extremely difficulty. Kitchen is not really fully serve for LONG TERM guests. I could not find portable stove. Only hot water heater that I can use to boil spaghetti. Fridge is downstair by reception where you can store your perishable food only if you are lucky enough to find a space.

    The hostel is cheap, clean, quiet and in a good location. The staff were polite and helpful when asked but seemed to prefer to keep out of your way. The rooms are big and the beds are ok. We returned and stayed again mainly because of the price and how quiet it is. The location is away from the main town, which is why it is quiet. Would recommend and stay again.

    Bedbugs! They infested the first beds we used, the staff extremely reluctantly let us switch beds, and the next bed had them as well. The staff allowed an entire family with four children to share two beds in our dorm room. The kitchen and bathrooms were at least relatively clean, and it's walking distance from lots of restaurants. Between the families in the dorm, the bedbugs, and the extremely unfriendly staff, I wouldn't recommend this place.

    Very surprised by this place the first hostel I’ve stayed in 7 years that doesn’t provide a blanket it’s only 2MR but really? We only got one key between us and there’s 4 locked doors before you can get to bed.. over kill if you ask me but the big issue is it’s not just for getting in it’s getting out as well! We asked for a second key and had to ask another 10 times when the very rude staff said there’s only one key... for an 8 bed dorm doubt it more things wrong not enough space book elsewhere

    Dont stay here!! Found staff to be very rude, beds are awful the Bunks squeak every time you move, the mattress are paper thin would have been better off sleeping on the floor, there are no blankets or sheets to put over yourself so if aircon is on your going to be very cold, No lockers for your belongings. It's cheap but I'd recomend to pay an extra €1 or €2 and stay somewhere better

    A dreadful hostel, bugs running on a ground, unhelpful silly staff, messy rooms and no privacy, no common room either, toilets cabins with showers with êxits to the kitchen. Also, you get locked inside and without a card you cannot exit, we got 1 card per 3 people. gg
