Customer review

02 April 2010

Liked: The staff here was horrible, not to mention discriminatory and definitely more than a little sketchy. For example, when I arrived to check in, I was about 30 minutes late, and when I told them I wanted to check in, they said it is a good thing you came now, we almost gave away your room. After 30 min? Really? Next in line was a group of women who asked if there was a room they could stay in, to which the staff replied, nope, all full. Not 10 minutes later, a group of men walk on up and ask the same, only to get 4 beds. Also, be sure to buy a lock at this place, even at the risk of losing the 10euro deposit for it. The rooms aren't fantastic, but if you only need a night, show up early, leave early, and don't bother with the staff.

02 December 2009

Liked: Good location. I lived in a mixed room for 6 people, there is no toilet in the room, 3 small dorms share one tiny toilet. i cannot find a place to take bath in the whole building, maybe it is in another building. And the quilt is not folded well when i arrived, looks like someone else has slept in this bed. The sheet looks clean but old, somewhere broken.

Liked: Stayed in the second building around the corner with minimal atmosphere. Staff seemed annoyed to help me and was woken up and treated like cattle when 10:30am rolled around after I had paid for a second night earlier that morning.
