16 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: the staff, the location, the possibilities to meet other people, the green bar at the hostel were great, number one!!! Just the rooms with 32 people inside were a shock, everyone goes to bed and wakes up at diferent time, you are not alone even for a minute. If you´re used to comfort and luxury, you´ll die there...otherwise it is great! :))

19 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This is definitely party hostel! the rooms are very crowded but you will meet a lot of people, and there is a smoking room in the bar too. it was a fun time but a little creepy, the bathrooms are gross and the showers arent great either, but its good for the price and really you are only in the shower or toilet for a total of 25 min a day, the rest of the time you are partying, meeting people, or out on the street shopping. the hostel is right next to the train station and the shopping street. The breakfast is really good too! I had a great time!
