  • Thank you French-speaking-Guy of the staff: you have been so kind and helpful. Battered still clean common space. Maybe the shower in the room doesn't help with privacy. Very good location due to the proximity with the underground station.

  • This hostel is a SCAM i found 22 euros missing from my card after 3 weeks i stayed there, and it shows as "now show charge", the thing is that i booked for one night and stayed and payed for that night, basically they have stolen 22 euros from my card. The hostel is dirty, rooms are small, the shower is inside the room, and the room door is constantly open anybody can get in, no security at all. No pans, pots, cutlery and plates, no wifi, no towels for free, everything is very expensive.

  • Parece que estas en una cárcel apilado, con ruido, no te dan facilidades, te cobran por todo, la señal de wifi fatal, un tipo de seguridad que va de chulo entrando en las habitaciones de golpe sin anunciarse antes de entrar tratando de sorprender a la gente, es mucho más parecido a un albergue para indigentes ante todo, la cocina una repurepugnancia no hacen limpieza parecer que la hubieran abandonado hace varios años sin utensillos para preparar ni para comer en fin el peor sitio que estado.
