I was left dissapointed in this hostel. Initially my impression was good. The environment of this hostel felt fairly standard and the staff member who greeted us was friendly. My impression of the place was lessened by an irrational guest, placed our room in the second night who was verbally confrontational with a number of us in the room, and...

Altough is very chip hostel, it's very clean, good location and good people. I spent 2 nights there and the hostel has everything you need, good mattress, good wifi, clean bedrooms and toilets, small kitchen but it's fine for what you need. Very good location, in 5 min you are in the main square. The entrance to the hostel is...

Nice place for the price paid. No bells and whistles, but it served the purpose of a place to sleep while seeing the local area. Room was clean, but a little dated. Breakfast was only toast and cereal and the hot water didn't last long in the shower.

The hostel is in a good location, 5 min walk to old town square. Close to bars, restaurants and shops. It was quite hard to find the hostel initially as it is tucked away through an alley and up some stairs. The staff were happy to help with booking tours and with any questions we had. The walls are extremely...

I have been inter-railing around Europe and have to say this is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in. 1) It is very hard to find- no signs on the street? We walked up and down for a considerable amount of time before eventually finding it. 2) The exterior of the hostel is disgusting, it looks like a...

Good price, great location, nice big communal area, good kitchen facilities with served breakfast which was a nice surprise. Beds were comfortable despite the triple bunk-beds being nothing id encountered before, they were fine. Unfortunately, the only real downsides to the rooms were not so spacious and our particular curtain did not cover the whole window (which was a blessing...
