A bit tricky to really rate this one as we never ended up in the hostel itself. We are group of 4 work mates who travel away on a boys trip every year, previously we have stayed at hotels, more recently though we have stayed in apartments, this time we went for a hostel and as such had a couple of correspondences regarding what we would be receiving
Basic specifcation ordered
Kitchenette with Tea coffee making
Location "close" to old town
Linen and towels included
Upon arrival at the hostel a "follow me" order was given with no further information. We then proceeded to follow the man out of the hostel up the road away from the hostel and old town, underneath the train line to another hostel approx 150m away from the original booked destination. No explanation was given as to why we were now in a different hostel to the one booked, and when asking the receptionist at the new location was unable to say definitelively although she thought that there may have been some problems with the toilets at the other one.
What we actually got :
No ensuite, shared toilet and shower just outside the room
Location a further 150m away, right next to train track
Linen - included, but towels costing extra (2 Litas / Towel)
It also proved to be quite noisey as there are a number of long slow loud screeching freight trains that run at night, this hostel was a lot closer to the track than the one booked.
Initially we thought that the other hostel was an extension of the old hostel but in fact it was a different hostel altogether. As a hostel itself it was fine and a review of this can be found on the 'Fortuna Hostel'. But it was not what we ordered and were expecting and hence have given a poor score to this particular one.
