Positive Reviews

Loving the location

Guests love the fact that the metro plus many shops and restaurants are in such close proximity to the hostel. In many instances, it is possible to walk to these and other attractions, so transport costs are then nil.

Efficient hostel staff

Guests say that the staff is very polite, friendly, and helpful. They aren't always around, but when they are on duty, they are helpful to guests.

Negative Reviews

Rooms lack a TV, but they are still noisy

There is no TV in the rooms, only in the shared kitchen. Guests miss this facility which they consider to be an essential item. They feel that this absence should reduce the noise problem, but this is not the case. These very small rooms have extremely thin walls and no soundproofing. Guests state that noise is an issue, even when neighbouring guests are being relatively quiet.

Plumbing problems

There are guest reports of sink blockages in the bathroom area. They also complain about the poor water pressure for showering, and a worrying, drain-like smell in the bathroom.

Rooms are very small

Rooms are considered by guests to be extremely small, and the very limited storage space makes the situation even worse. The bathroom area is thought to be particularly tiny. They have, for some reason, very low ceilings. It is strange, guests say, that whilst the rooms are small, the beds are quite large, and really very comfortable. Guests conclude in feeling that the rooms are OK as a base from which to explore, but they would become problematic for anything other than short stays.
