Biggest pro: the location—lovely street with lots of cute cafes nearby, close to metro Biggest con: at least during my stay, everyone else was in their early 20s drinking/partying all the time. Not what I was looking for in terms of hostel culture, but I’m in my mid 30s, so… Also, the room smelled like teenage body odor even though the windows were wide open the whole time.

My bed sheets had blood stains 😬 The staff were able to move me to a new bed but this definitely rubbed me the wrong way. There were also ants in the room and the hostel lacked liveliness. It’s good if you want a basic hostel but I think there are much better hostels in the area for similar prices.

Room had no AC, so it ran really hot, even with a fan. Location was nice enough, close to the metro & some restaurants. Ok for one night, would recommend for shorter stays.
