"Great location- right next to the bus station and not far from the train station. Good for one nights stay but wouldn't want to stay any longer."

Liked: Great location- right next to the bus station and not far from the train station. Good for one nights stay but wouldn't want to stay any longer.

Disliked: The room was fine but things about it were a bit unfinished- the shower leaked, the plug socket was held together with tape, the door handle was loose etc.

Liked: The location

Disliked: The receptionist was never at the reception desk so if you need help you can only count on your own... no kitchen facilities nor common space at all, dirty bathrooms. Room was really smelly and hot and a bed was a nightmare - extremely loud and swinging all the time. I've slept on a lot of beds, but that one was really awful.

Liked: It's right next to the bus station but even that doesn't help... There about four or five flights of stairs and there are other places that are just a two minute walk farther... Receptionist was friendly.

Disliked: Not very clean... Smelled like cat piss when I got into the room. The beds are old and sag in the middle. The lockers all have broken doors, they close and "lock" but a good tug and anyone can get in. There was a guy there who always seemed to be half drunk and passed out snoring in a chair outside of the main door, seemed like a friend of the receptionist. The bathroom shower didn't drain and when I went to take a shower myself after someone there was definitely some cum left floating in the water....

Liked: I had the best hostel breakfast (included in the price) ever. It made my day. And Aston Hostel was cheap. It was my intention to find a cheap accomodation with a fair rating, so I am entirely satisfied.

Disliked: The room was too light during the night, and although I had ear taps, there was much noise from outside. It was not easy to sleep.

Liked: First of all, the location is ideal :) when you got off the bus it is just not difficult to miss the sign "Hostel Aston". The centra of the town is just a few min away. Then there are two main girls you meet. two of them are very kind and always willing to help you whatever the reason is. The room is clean and comfortable. I would very much recommend you if you you stay in Rijeka.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: It's direct at the bus station. Rooms are very clean. Staff is frindly if you make a small talks.

Disliked: It's on the 3rd flor (they are very high ones). Windows in dorm go to the bus station/main street and a harbour, so at night some people may need ear plugs. There is a huge asvertisment at the building with lights, so if you need real darkness to sleep, it may be difficult (but it's useful for late-returning roommates as they don't have to turn the light on;). Staff is not well oriented about places to go/how to travel in Rijeka area, but apart from that they are very friendly.

Liked: lovely owner. She recommended us a very good and cheap restaurant nearby. We went there twice and it was really really delicious. Good position. Just near the main bus station. Good choice for early flight.

Disliked: Very old building outside and inside. It is at maybe 5th floor without elevator. Hard to reach with huge luggage.

Liked: Great location next to the bus station if you are traveling early in the morning like me had to just go out of the building and you are immediately at the bus station. Room was clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom is clean and there is paper, but there was no hand soap. Recommend this hostel.

Liked: Central and seedy location. Awesome if you are just staying one night- wouldnt recommend more nights. Good air con.

Disliked: Had bed springs jabbing into our backs all night. Kitchen is only open from 9am till 9pm, as this is where the receptionist sleeps. Couldn't even get a bowl and spoon for cereal at 8am in the morning. We stayed in the 5 bed dorm, they cram as many people as they can into the small room, leaving no space for anyone's luggage. Very difficult when getting anything from your bag.

Liked: Nice hostel in the center, near the bus station. It is great that you have air conditioning in the room because in the past the hostel did not have air conditioning, so it was hard to sleep. The staff is young and helpful. I recommend it because is cheap and worth it all the money.

Disliked: It is OK, but the Wifi was not work well sometimes,the atmosphere is not soo good.
