  • The place was filled with partying people and there was loud music until early in the morning. There was even loud music coming from speakers in the halls of the hostel. The facilities weren't any good: it was the worst bed we ever slept in (you can't even call that a mattress) and there was no warm water to take a shower. There was a bad smell all over the hostel. When you want to check out outside office hours, you have to call the night guard which is pretty expensive whith a "foreign phone".
    Owner Comment

    Thank you for feedback it is appreciated. We do like to call our selves a fun hostel and often provide live entertainment and DJ's which comes at a cost to the hostel. We insure all music is turned off at 10pm all over the hostel. Unfortunately having 300 beds in the hostel there sometimes is one that needs replacing this of course needs to be bought to receptions attention to fix the problem.

Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
