Breakfast included with the minimum necessary
The sheets full of hairs. Disgusting. I carried on my suitcase without any help until the secondo floor. The key didn’t work.
Good location, good price, friendly staff.
Not quite satisfy with the pillow & blanket. Small room. Shared bathroom.
The hostel was very quiet. There are many full-time tenants there so they usually return from work, cook and socialise and then head to bed. The staff were very approachable, helpful and easy-going. Staff make an effort to clear the fridges of the old food. The people in my mixed-dorm were lovely, clean and tidy. The TV was barely turned on and always on very low volume. The location was fantastic. There's a Woolworth's metro just 80m walk away.
The Sofa in the chill room was broken. Though we still used it, it tilted to the ground. The hostel is located close to a homeless shelter so you have some non-violent, gentle but rough-looking homeless walking around the are. None of them asked for money or hassled me.
The location is good, staff is nice
The cleanliness of the toilet and kitchen are the main problem here, since too many guests staying and most of them do not really respect the rules, kitchen mostly messy and sink is full and dirty all the time
