Liked: Location was within walking distance of attractions or the metro. One of the staff members was very helpful. The 24hr reception made early checkout easy.

Disliked: The shower leaked and there was no drain in the bathroom meaning the water floods out into the bedroom. Only 2 beds in a 4 person dorm meaning guests are expected to share. Internet was unavailable for use except in the very wee hours of the morning.

Liked: ∙ Good location ∙ Clean ∙ Comfortable beds ∙ Upgraded me to a nicer dorm w/o me asking because there was space available

Disliked: ∙ Wouldn't let me pay with a credit card (explicitly says they accept credit cards on hostelbookers) ∙ Only one bathroom, which makes it hard to use in the morning ∙ Locked gate means you have to be buzzed in each time you want to enter the property ∙ Street noise

Liked: close to corso Buenos Aries, and also just 20 minutes to porta venizia by walking, the distance to the center is also acceptable. each room has individual bathroom, and clean.

Disliked: the sound absorption effect is not good, especially there is a door made of wood separating our room to another, during the night, i could hear my neighbor snoring next the wall. also when i leave there is no hot water in the morning, in the third floor, also with poor wifi, almost not connected.

Liked: Nothing specific, I suppose its proximity to a Carrefour Express.

Disliked: The single bathroom between god knows how many people. This creates, obviously, numerous problems in the morning.

Liked: It was quite clean and the owner was nice. The room was small but fulfilled our needs and the bathroom was okay. It was really close to the metro station and the center was only one station away.

Disliked: We had to pay another 3€ (not optional) for the sheets and 7€ for air conditioning (optional). There were a lot of other students and backpackers staying so after 11pm it was still really loud.

13 August 2013

Liked: It was kind of easy for us to get to the main station just walking very early in the morning

Disliked: On the confirmation email there's no mention about the extra 3E for the sheets, you'll get to know just if you use the link on the email and read very carefully the small sized lines right at the end...and it's something you cannot choose if you have booked for an offer...so, be careful: when a price seems nice, you'll be charged for something else, even if you have your sleeping bag with you!! Also, we were shown to a 7-8 beds dormitory even though we booked and payed for a 4 beds one and without being asked before. Only when we complained, the guy tried to solve the problem caused offering us a private room!!

Liked: My friend and I arrived with a reservation, but their rooms were all full. They kindly put us in a private room, and we had our own room with a private shower for the night.

Disliked: There's no air conditioning and no mosquito net on the window.... if you stay there in the summer, you will get raided by mosquitoes. The shower is also mediocre in cleanness. Also, there is a hidden charge of 3 Euros for sheets... something they force you to get, even if you have a sleeping bag.
