Very helpful and backpacers friendly stuff. Hostel is located in the pleasant area with many good restaurants (for veggies).
Smelly room, kind of dirty and poorly maintained.
Well, the price may be appealing and the photos don’t look so bad, but don’t fall into that! The room costed us 37€ (we were 2) but we only had 40€ in cash and he told us he would give us the change later. However, when we checked-out, I asked for the change and he replied as we had asked for more towels (there was only one shower towel, not even a hand towel was provided), we had to pay for it as they weren’t for free. Plus, he told us this info was available in the description, but I looked for it and couldn’t find it, which honestly just sounded like an excuse to keep the 3€. The room was too tight, we barely had space to move or open our luggage. The sheets had stains and so did the pillows, floor was dirty and I’m pretty sure the toilet wasn’t cleaned from one day to the other. We know that for 37€ we can’t ask for much, however minimal hygienic conditions should be assured at any hostel/hotel.
Only plus is the location, just a few minutes from subway and a handful of restaurants located immediately around, including an Indian one with tasty menus.
Extremly loud, there was a cooling aggregate from the restaurant below, located directly under the room, roaring so loud that it was annoying even with closed window (which was defective and did not close well). The room had a strong odour of sweat, which didn't exactly add to comfort. The "window" just shows the wall of the oppositing building. There is exactly one douche/WC combo for the whole hostel and is of course often occupied. The staff told me it will be quiet from 11pm. Then that time passed, and it was still loud. Suddenly it should be 1am, which then was correct. But it did not last long, at 6.30 the vacuum cleaner suddenly ended my few hours of sleep. Internet / WiFi is available but not really fast. For 28€ it is a really bad offer.
Expected much more but the reality was something else
