The room was nice and clean and the bed comfortable, good value for the price.
It was very hard to find the hostel, there are no signs on the street front even though the entrance is from an inside garden, you have to go through a gate to find it. Check in was not too flexible, we arrived 2 hours earlier and the reception was not even open, we barely found any staff and we could not check in earlier.
The hostel was very clean!
There was no kitchen and the atmosphere was somewhat dry. I usually meet people in hostels and enjoy learning about them, but this hostel wasn't set up to do so.
Good location, comfortable rooms, shower and toilet are separate from the rooms. Great staff, thanks!
Good location I wss assigned a room where they had smoked and kept the window open at 0 degrees. Luckily I could change to another one. Staff should take care of that.
Showers need more light, almost impossible to see when it’s dark
