Positive Reviews

Ideally located near public transportation

Guests liked the hostel's location mostly because it is near the city centre and public transportation. Train, metro, and buses are only ten minutes' walking distance. Thus, this property is an excellent choice when it comes to location according to guests.

Low-cost hostel that fits the budget

According to guests, the accommodation was very cheap to stay at and was ideal for those travelling on a tight budget. However, you should not expect a lot as this hostel offered only the very basic. There was nothing quite luxurious but what's important was guests could save a lot.

Fast and reliable Wi-Fi connection

The property had a good Wi-Fi speed that can accommodate all guests. This was very much appreciated especially those who needed to stay connected with their friends and family online.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are poorly taken care of

Guests noted that the cleanliness of this hostel needed urgent attention. Rooms were packed and messy, bed was uncomfortable, and toilet was not in a good condition and had broken seats. Furthermore, kitchen walls were dirty and had no dirty towels and sheets, and old furniture were falling apart.

Party-hostel with noisy people

The sound of the music from the night club near this hostel with people partying, shouting, smoking and drinking all night long was very disturbing. The noise went on for more than 12 hours, depriving the guests with good sleep.

24-bedroom dorm is too tight

Since this hostel is for backpackers, it has dorm-type rooms for sharing, which guests find a little too tight and uncomfortable. There were no space to move around and it was too messy with things and clothes everywhere on the floor. Also, the bunk beds were kind of rickety so they shake when people climb up and down.
