I have never experienced a worse hostel even in developing countries. It's cramped, dirty and the nightclub below plays music to the early morning. Entrance is via a glum staircase full of smokers from the club. Feel sorry for the man who works there who was very friendly and helpful.

The location was great, it has restaurants next to it and it's right on the corner of pedestrian only street. The women who runs the place during the day was very nice, however the rooms are not good. They are worn down and broken. The heater and hot water barely work. There is a refrig, which is nice. We had...

Never ever have I seen such a horrible hostel. The rooms are worn out, staff is most unfriendly, and the only thing they are interested in is your money. I arrived there after an 10 hour bus ride, all I wanted was to get some sleep. Difficult to get sleep when it is 35 degrees outside and there is no...

The location is excellent but cause The walls are like paper you can hear everything from the streets and the rooms next to yours. Its cheap, they have internet and the lady who was working there was nice even we had some trouble understanding each other cause she doesnt speak any English.

It still did the job for us travelling around Europe but I'd have to say it was my least favourite hostel of the trip. The staff was a bit cold and the rooms were ver basic with only 2 plugs for 8 beds. Good location though.

When we arrived at the hostel we thought we were going into someones house. This impression didn't change when we stayed there! The lady that runs the hostel was friendly and fairly helpful, but she also seemed to have a very large family that had overrun the whole hostel, so we felt a bit overwhelmed and unwelcome. The dorm was...

This place should be the last one, where you have to choose if you didn't find anything else in this city. The rooms are ok, but the hot water and the heat in the rooms are terrible. The only good thing was that after I said that the rooms where we were staying is cold, the old woman brings us...

I would actually give this place 3.5 circles since 3 circles is kind of below average on TA (and 2 circles is generally pretty bad). This is a small hostel with one dorm room (six beds) and a couple of private rooms all of which share one bath. On the plus side the dorm room is good size and mostly...
