  • Perfect value for the money. Conveniently located - not far from the city centre, close to different means of transport. Wi-fi is a bit unstable, but all in all working all right. Really wide range of kitchen utensils for cooking. At weekends the music in the bar downstairs gets really loud, especially in female 6-bed room. However, it did not trouble me as I'm a sound sleeper.

  • Of all the hostels we have stayed at this was by far the worst. 1) you have to make your own bed. 2) the location is scary, and we never felt safe once. 3) if you like to sleep, don't go there. Beds squeeked non stop and when the have loud music playing downstairs (every night) your entire bedroom shakes. 3) basically everyone there lived there. 4) the bedroom was not cleaned ONCE the entire time we were there. Dust piles and lentils all over 5) toilet are not even close to sinks. I could go on.
