We stayed at this hostel in november 2015. Rooms were very small, even to hostelstandards and the matrasses and pillows weren't comfortable. The hostel could improve a lot if they would invest more in isolation as well, cause you could hear everything. So, this covers the things to improve, but it wasn't all bad. The staff was very friendly and...

This hostel is actually great! From the really friendly staff to the wacky communist decor. The rooms and bathrooms were nice and the staff always there to suggest bars restaurants or directions. It's in a great location just a few mins walk from loads of cool bars in the Jewish District and 15 mins walk to the main square. It...

Everything was really good. The staff is really helpful and nice to talk to. The rooms were a bit full and the beds are a bit too near of each others, but at the end we just go there for sleeping no? The bathrooms were ok. The included breakfast was quite nice and the facilities, such as a parking, were...

The cleanliness is very lacking. They don't clean the room every day and rubbish accumulates in the bins, especially in the private bathrooms. The bunk beds are old and creak a lot. The Wifi is poor. There is a receptionist, (I think her name is Kin) that speaks very loud in the morning and she could be very unpleasant. I...

This was my first time ever staying at a hostel, and my experience here was alright. Nice staff, but usually outside smoking and no way of telling if they were staff or not. Only knew after staying a couple days... So that was a bit annoying. It wasn't super clean, but at least the beds and towels were very clean....

This is a decently priced hostel in an interesting part of the city. Our linen and towels were fresh and clean. Shower was very warm and heating was good (so not cold). The staff and other guests are very friendly and made us feel very welcome both in reception and in the shared kitchen. Breakfast was good.
