  • Guys at front desk were great! Hotel is really close to the city centre but it's not a location you would let your child walk alone.

  • We stayed one week at the Pontiac Hostel. The hostel itself is okay; it's good deal. Meanwhile, I do not recommend this place to anyone due to the bad district. We are two young french girls and everytime we're coming back to our hostel after a day of visits, we met some crazy people, crackers mostly asking for money and screaming to us. Day after day, we get more and more scared. People told us to take a cab each time we're going out at night. It's lots of "pressure" and bad atomsphere.
