    Toilet was clean but smelly. Didnt even provided bedsheet, asked for extra money when i reached there for bedsheet. Expected s to bring that from home. Decent for the money but can be improved in many ways. Put me on 8th floor and there was no elevator till 8th. Pretty sure many rooms down were vacant where elevators reached. Receptionist not friendly

    There are around 200 rooms and it has a little tiny kitchen, which is closed in the morning. I stayed in a shared room for 6 people, it had no space for luggage. There was one person in the room who seems to lived there, regarding the amount of things he has, all over the tiny room, and it was pretty dirty. The Room service just came every day and left a toilet paper, but they didn't clean anything.

    I had to leave the place on the next day, having booked 4 nights. As a woman, I would like to be understood when I say I’m uncomfortable. I got a room with 3 guys at first, that had already used my bed, and despite of being a smoke forbidden room, it smelled like cigarette. Then I asked for a change, I told them hopefully with a woman in the room and at least where my bed had not being used. They said for a girls room it was extra 50 €, unbelievable. Also, the room was dirty and nothing clean.

    This was probably my worst hostel experience. The lacking lockers in the rooms made me feel incredibly unsafe. The bathrooms constantly smelled like urine. The kitchen was absolutely disgusting, food all over the floors and counters, not cleaned up, sticky, smelly. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    The staff was extremely rude and unprofessional. I stayed for 4 nights and I payed for 4-bed female dorms. I payed the minute I got there and they gave me a receipt that only said female dorm. I was suprised to see that they put me in a 6-bed female dorm so I asked the reception and they told me that it wasn't their fault and something happened with the booking. Plus the last night a guy slept in my room even though it was supposed to be female dorms.
