Liked: Good location, great WiFi across the site, kitchen facilities, the staff were very pleasant. The room was very spacious. Laundry service at 5 euro or 10 lev per load (~5 kg). Our booking hadn't reached them, but the room we wanted was available on arrival.

Disliked: Only one toilet + shower room. Ask the staff to use the ones downstairs.

Liked: Ideal for students, perfect location in the center, welcoming and helpful staff.

Disliked: I would suggest better keys and locking of rooms. The combination of toilet and shower in the same room is not good, should be separated.

Liked: The location, neighbourhood and the personal space in the dormitory.

Disliked: First of all, the description how to get to the hostel was inaccurate since it did not say in which direction to take the tram, so I ended up in the other side of town. Also, I booked a 4-bed dorm and was placed in a 6-bed dorm, which was fine on the one hand because there were not more than 4 people sleeping there, but still, I paid more than the others in that room because I booked the 4-bed dorm. Further, the showers and toilets are not very clean and are worn out. The shower on the 1st floor is literally in the same space as where the toilet is, so everything gets really wet and it's a bit nasty. The staircase has no light, so when coming back in the night, it is best to have your phone ready as a torch! The staff was not very helpful; for example, I had to find myself a towel because there was no staff when I wanted to take a shower (Generally, there was no staff member at the reception desk). There also seemed to be some friction between the staff members. One big disadvantage is that the whole places lacks atmosphere: the common room is very dark and empty, with uncomfortable and worn out couches. Also, keep in mind that people of all ages are sleeping in the dorm, including very senior people. To me this was no problem, but others might not like it as much. All in one, the price is low and that makes up for a lot of the disadvantages, but you might want to spend 1 or 2 euros more for a more cosy and comfortable accommodation.

Liked: Clean hostel, centrally located

Disliked: They have only one kitchen and one balcony for smoking at 1st floor, none at 2nd floor. And we had problems connecting to the Internet which they could not solve. We had to move to another hostel because of that.
