That’s terrible experience due to they received extra orders and dropped clients at 15pm without any supports and any phone contacts! You won’t know where are you after, just by a system error.

Atmosphere was very poor during two days, no one communicating. Some stuff members were friendly, some weren't, gossiping, spreading bad vibes without reason. Very disappointing.

Great location. Friendly staff. Bring earplugs - the sound of the street is very loud. The music downstairs is also way too loud. If you want a little quietness this place is not for you. When I stayed there they threw a huge private birthday party which I think is a bit disrespectful. They have people that stay for long at the hostel, that are acting like the dorm is their own room, not respecting other people by turning on the light at 1 am and 5 am. Most of the times it's very clean. Good kit
