Stayed here with some friends from work while visiting the city. This hostel has a ZERO fun policy. It was a Saturday night and the staff were grumpy and uninterested. There was just a very bad atmosphere in this place. Not one person smiling.
Room was ok, nothing special. Bathroom was not clean and looked like it would take some serious work to get clean.... none of us opted to shower there.
So we decided the best thing to do was to just get out of there for the night. Went out, had a fun night.....
And at 2am we returned happy and laughing and we are quickly reminded of the no fun policy. Grumpy staff shouting at us. So we creep to our room and as none of us are tired we sit in bed chatting and we hear loud banging on the ceiling. Apparently the staff are sleeping above us. So we quite down a bit but continue to talk and after 10 minutes a staff member comes storming into our room and starts shouting at us to "keep the noise down"............ We also heard them giving out to other guests. No warning, No asking nicely....... just straight into shouting and storming around being the epitome of misery.
These guys have no idea how to handle working and living in a hostel.
This is a hostel in the center of the city............. on a Saturday night and these guy are freaked over the smallest bit of noise.
So yeah, really glad we only stayed one night. Will never stay again
