Customer review

01 June 2009

Liked: The hostel was cheap and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The woman who cleaned the rooms was terribly rude to my friend, barking at her in Italian - which thankfully my friend couldn't understand, but I could - for merely entering a bathroom she was about to clean. The woman at reception apologized however, and other than that small incident I can't fault the staff at all. They were kind and did everything they could to accommodate us. The hostel itself was too small for the number of people staying there. Although it came with handy services like a kitchen and a living area with a Tv and DVD player, you had to walk through these common areas in the morning and at night to get to the bathrooms - which is awkward in a mixed dorm situation that demands changing in the bathroom area. The bathrooms were constantly occupied and I suspect had some plumbing issues. One of the two showers was out of commission and the other bathroom smelled of sewage. People were constantly moving within the hostel - the staff would accidentally unmake a bed and the person would have to move somewhere else as their former bed had been given to a new person. The people staying at the hostel were friendly for the most part, but some would pull pranks like stealing bunk bed ladders in the night. The staff didn't seem to mind or notice this kind of thing, let alone try to prevent it. I was only there for 3 nights but it was the final 3 nights of my trip and I was not impressed. There were no lockers or secure areas to leave luggage. I had to keep my backpack locked at all times.I would not recommend this hostel unless money is the only criteria. The friendliness of the staff was not worth the discomfort and uncleanliness of the hostel itself.
