Liked: Great bar downstairs that is lively until the early hours of the morning, which can be good or bad depending on what kind of trip you're on. Wouldnt recommend this hostel to anyone who is looking for a quiet atmosphere.

Disliked: Staff were nice but not overly helpful. There are no security measures put in place. Location is a little far out from everything aswell.

Liked: El personal es bastante amable.

Disliked: Un poco alejado del centro, las camas muy incómodas y tuve la duda si las sábanas estaban realmente limpias. La ducha dejaba salir el agua por lo que siempre había una poza en el baño, además la ventilación del dormitorio era malísima. El desayuno no es una gran maravilla, solo café o té y un poco de pan con mermelada y mantequilla. La cocina no tiene casi ningún implemento y lo que había estaba sucio.

Liked: We were given a dorm in a block of apartments adjacent to the main hostel building. The room was clean, and had a nice number of power sockets. The receptionist was able to recommend places to go and give us information on the free walking tour. A cool thing is that there's a bar on site, which gets fairly lively at night. There's a children's playground on site as well, which can get a bit annoying. It wasn't an amazing location, but it was far enough out to mean you could get fairly cheap food. It's about a five minute walk from a tram and metro stop, so it's not exactly hard to get into the centre.

Disliked: The building we were in had a strange entry system. You could enter freely, but you needed a code to exit. The receptionist tried to explain why, but I didn't really understand the reasoning. This resulted in groups of people gathering at the door waiting to be let out because they couldn't remember the code. The apartment was nice (it had two dorms of six in it), but the bathroom system was a bit strange. There was a toilet marked men's which literally just had a toilet (no sink or mirror). Then there was a bathroom marked women's, which had a toilet, sink, mirror, shower and bath. Basically, everybody just ended up using the one with everything. Two minor points, which wouldn't put me off booking again.

Liked: nice playground, bar, there are also a couple of places close to the hostel, where you can buy pizza or gyros.

Disliked: there was some mistake in checking-in and we were 7 people in 6-bed room... thank to the couple, it was ok, because they managed to occupy only one bed.

Liked: Breakfast, bar cafe and a late night club all being on site was a major bonus, plus there's a playground with a mini zipwire. What more could you want...?

Disliked: Was quite shabby looking on the inside, but verging more towards unkempt old manor rather than run-of-the-mill dirty...

Liked: You get a good place to sleep very cheap. Lockers under the beds which works good. Shower and toilet in the room. Not a place to met people but a cheap place to stay thats in a decent location. It takes you maybe 20 minutes to walk in to the city centre. A few stops with metro.

Disliked: Says it has a kitchen. Does not.

Liked: the coffee in the morning, and it had a nice bar that was always full of locals every evening and was a nightclub at the weekends.

Disliked: having stayed in several hostels this was probably the worst. despite mentioning the following in their profile there is; no self catering facilities or washing machines, a non existent games room, the staff are bemused for most of the time or hungover, slow service and very disorganised. our first room was dirty, one bathroom which could potentially, if full, service 15 people. The bar was the first priority and the hostel came second.

Liked: My friends and I walked into this hostel at 9pm hoping for a place to stay and we were lucky enough that they were able to take us. We cannot say enough good things about this hostel. They are friendly and SO helpful. They helped us find some place to eat, book train tickets for the next night and even called us a taxi. The owner is so nice and helpful. Great location and great service.

Disliked: nothing.
