  • Very bad, dirty. There are flys in the kitchen, and the staff there seems like to leave the kitchen in a mess. Smelly in the room. Wifi is limited, 1GB, you have to login on a website, but it contiued get down. I tried a whole night, still couldn't login. Btw, many Italian with holiday work visa there, they speak loudly, and drunk a lot. Never go there again. the worst hostel i had ever been.

  • Some points this hostel advertises with are simply wrong. I want to list them: - "guests receive free 50mb of internet during their stay" -> No. Just 30 MB and 30 Minutes per day, if one of both is reached first Wi-Fi is no longer accessible. - "Our free breakfast is served from 8am to 9am." -> Just in the winter months I guess. I got there in may and no breakfast was served. But all in all it was ok. Wi-Fi exists in the city library and the supermarkets aren't that far away. Good to start.
