    The facilities are so clean. One guest mentioned that she felt this hostel was a bit stiff in terms of hospitality, but I enjoyed that the staff and signage around the hostel both encourage conscientiousness and cleanliness. I absolutely loved the staff. They were so friendly and relaxed, everyone was so kind and helpful, always ready to assist. Met some very nice people there.

    I wasn't a fan of the shower stalls, as they don't have a door to prevent water from spreading to the rest of the bathroom. There was no place to put my clothes or shoes to protect them from getting wet The door to the toilet opens counter-intuitively, which makes going in and out of the restroom a bit awkward. In terms of security, lockers are great. But, one of the apartment renters within the apartment complex was entering in order to steal milk from the kitchen (what?! get your own!), which had apparently been happening for a long time, which was a nuisance and made me uncomfortable. I feel the staff should have addressed this issue more effective. In terms of tourism advice, the staff should ensure that the info they give is accurate and up-to-date. My friend and I went to the salt mines, which are located in a neighboring village and requires a bit of navigation. Getting to the minibus required walking some 10 minutes and since few people speak English there, we needed instructions to navigate. The minibus and local bus fares were higher than we were told and the minibus stop was unmarked so in the end the advice we received from the staff on how to get there was useless.

    The location was great, the staff was AMAZING! The cost of the property and cleanliness of the property were totally worth it. I would definitely recommend to a friend and certainly stay there again!

    The breakfast was below average but really not a huge deal because the cost of everything was really still such a great deal. So just go have breakfast in the city! But worst case, they do have bread and cereal!

    Very good location. Nice staff, specially Cosmin, who was always talking to the guests.

    The bathrooms could be a bit cleaner. Breakfast could be improved (eggs and some fruit, for example)
