“Very Basic but cheap”
Reviewed 29 September 2008

This YHA is very basic but clean and cheap. I paid about £7 a night including bedding. It feels as though it is a hang over from the communist era, and I actually enjoyed that because that experience is getting rarer. The staff were fine and it is fairly easy to find, the hostel website has a map and directions. I booked via the website and corresponded using email

The hostel is located about 15 minutes walking distance from the main square and I felt safe walking at night

The meals in the hsotel were an experience! I would suggest giving the restaurant a go but don't be surprised if they don't have any of the items on the menu in stock. It is used to train catering students and is cheap and cheerful. Otherwise there are some good local restaurants

I would recommend this for someone who is looking for a cheap place to stay for a few nights who is not looking for any luxury

  • Liked — The price and the 'communist ' feel
  • Disliked — It could be noisy if school parties were staying
  • Stayed September 2008, travelled on business
