I knew I couldn't expect much. I booked the rooms for my friends and family 7 months before our arrival!!! just to be sure that we will be in the same hostel, in the same building.
one day before our arrival I called the lady to inform that one person would not arrive because of the health problems - as it was written in the agreement I was supposed to be charged one night for the person - not more. The reality appeared to be different. The hostel is in the Chinese quartier with Nigerian shops. Plenty of drug dealers, but not harmfull. If you are not afraid of ghetto places - you can easily sleep there
Well... we arrived in the morning, and the rooms were not ready - which is ok - the hotel day starts at 2pm, unpleasant thing was that they separated our small group and put its members to different apartments in difrent houses - and asked us to change the rooms every two night!!
The rooms were very small but clean, airconditioning very old and dirty so we did not use it, television is fake, old destroyed furniture, nice personnel at the reception desk.
Breakfast - poor - the cheapest cornetto, artificial juice and instant coffee.
After the first night they asked us to pay for all the nights - and charged us extra money for the room changes - sayng that they were better than we ordered!!!
When I said I was not going to pay any extra money for the changes that were not my fault they started to be rude, impolite and agressive. I was there with my family and friends - didn't want to couse any problems - especially that we were going to spend there 4 more nights. If I had been alone or only with my husband - for sure I would have changed the hostel!
I work as a tourguide, travel all around Europe - such situation has never happened to me. I do not know if it is the question of cultural difference or just character. Stay away from Overseas! Go somewhere else.
