    Good for every aspects except balcony is facing the KK Bypass which is inevitably noisy nearly throughout the day (unless you hang out during midnight like I did :) then you fins tranquility)

    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
