    Never again. Booked the dorm for a quick night while passing through on my way to the airport. Figured since I only needed a quick sleep a cheap place was okay. The dorm was fully open on the ground level where the smell of urine wafted from the toilets only feet away and a dirty kitchen was my view. Snoring man on the next bunk, men loudly walking through at all hours, bathroom only half worked and no blanket or even a top sheet. Horrible nights sleep, got out of there ASAP the next morning.

    It didn't match our expectation. The facilities are not good enough. If they can improve them better, it would be fine. However, the staffs are quite friendly and helpful.

    The staff was not overly friendly. They were more concerned about watching TV. When I was in reception to charge my phone, I mistook her talking to me, the way she responded was rude. Further when I wanted to upgrade my room to another room, the same lady asked me a question that to me seemed so uninviting on her part. I terminated my stay with them after a day as I did not feel comfortable staying in their establishment. I would not recommend the hostel nor will I ever go back.

    Worst hostel we have ever stayed at. We’ve been travelling as a couple for 6 months and have found nothing so terrible. Awful cleanliness, the MOST uncomfortable bed ever - i’d rather have slept on the floor. They overbooked us so charged us an extra ₽200 for the room when it was their mistake. Awful customer service & kept us waiting for half an hour. The room was like an oven - I know it’s cheap but it is by no means worth it. I would never go back and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
