    Great location and very friendly staff! The rooms are spacious and the place clean. The only slightl downside is that, although they are air conditioned, they tend to be hot in the summer. The interior garden is great

    In general, everything was in place and the hostel fulfilled all the basic expectations. The washrooms however could be more cleaner and mosquitos sometimes hover around your bed. When I complained about this fact at the check-out, the staff only listened to the problem but showed no willingness to solve it, even after I gave a few suggestions.

    The location is perfect and is a really nice and historical building. BUT they gave me a room which was the corridor and access to 4 other rooms and that had the lockers of the whole floor in it (really noisy), moreover the lights turned automatically on (and stayed on for 5 mins) every time somebody arrived to the floor (impossible to sleep, plus nothing to cover the light with). It wasn't even the cheapest room. Showers with broken locks and no soap in the bathroom (Covid times!)

    Nothing in the kitchen, no kettle or knives or even a chopping board. The reception process is horrible and impractical. We had to pay an extra 4 euros to leave our luggage and it was in a open room where anyone could enter and take any bag they liked.

    I didn’t expect for a hostel to be this bad. I’m surprised by all positive reviews. I booked a mixed 4 bedroom and received a large corridor with 6 beds and 4 more bedrooms with no doors and one shared bathroom without locks. The staff was very unfriendly, saying they were fully booked (not true). Only after I insisted on changing the room they put me in a closed room STILL with 6 beds but it had a door, at the top bed. It was very hot because the air conditioning wasn’t working in of the rooms.

    For a so called "New Generation" hostel, it was quite disappointing. The only good thing was the location and the cute building. The bad: long tedious check-in procedure. Strange hostess. No soap in kitchen, toilette or bathroom during covid! Weak air conditioning. Room full of mosquitoes. Unclean floor and bathroom. Have to pay 4eur if you want your luggage stored. The new generation can't even swap beds in their system. We had to sleep in separate parts of the dorm.

    Having stayed in hostels for 15 years, I was shocked by this experience. I booked for three nights and instead, went to a hotel the last night. I hadn't slept a second. The room was boiling hot, had no door (connected to four other rooms), an automatic light constantly switched on and the noise at night was shameful. In the open hall next to the room, painfully noisy lockers topped up the awful experience. I am stunned and puzzled by the many positive reviews of this hostel.

    DON’T COME TO THIS HOSTEL Unless you enjoy to fell like you are sleeping in an oven! They say it has ar conditioner, but thats a lie, and don’t wast your time trying to reclaim cause they won’t do anything. Also, I couldn’t even lock de door to take a shower. And they charge you 20€ for security/lockers and they say that you will get your money back on the checkout, but thats also a lie, cause it takes 9-21 days to get your money back. And just to finish well, the room had no door!
