Liked: The staff was helpfull, the bed was good,the facilities weren't old. There was a good amount of space on the bedroom of 10 people,and there was air conditioned! The bathrooms were good too.

Disliked: Although it is quite central (takes a 10minutes walk to the city centre) the neighborhood didn't seem very safe...and it wasn't that easy to find(try to reach it while there's daylight!). Despite that, I didn't have problems, even when I went alone for a walk at night.

Liked: a nice historic building, safe and secure, nice inside, lots of character, AWESOME showers, lots of friendly people.

Disliked: It can get loud at night, as the people like to party in the yard. WARNING: there are many stray dogs in the area, some are very vicious, stay away from them. most are ok, a few are bloodthirsty.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The hostel was also very clean and the beds nice. Unfortunately the hostel is in a bit of a rough location for those arriving at night. There was some dodgy activity happening on the street outside the hostel, and it was definiely not safe to wander the area at night. Overall a positive experience.

Disliked: The location. It's close to Unirii Square but the surrounding streets are a hotbed of unsavoury charachters.

Liked: Nice Building.

Disliked: The hostel is a good 20 minute walk from the centre of town, the area it is in appears to be a bit run down. The bunk was very uncomfortable and I struggled to get to sleep at night, the whole hostel had a weird vibe, most people seemed to be staying their long term and not travellng so not really keen to talk to new people. Lots of strange behaviour in the 8 bed dorm I was staying by the other guest and some had very bad personal hygiene. There was only 1 male shower on the ground floor. There was cleaning log in the bathrooms but they gave up filling this in after 3 days in march and you could tell.

Liked: The shower was amazing!! The dorms are spacious and comfy. The kitchen is fairly small but adequate. The place has an intimate vibe. Computer is available to use for free. Staff are helpful and very careful about security.

Disliked: The place wasn't very full when I visited, so it may be competitive for bathrooms/computer/etc at times (I don't know).

Liked: Great value for the cleanliness, and the 12 bed dorm I stayed in - best one so far. 10 single beds, with a bunk bed on the side, air-conditioned room, and very spacious. Staff were also friendly and willing to help with any queries.

Disliked: There wasn't much of an atmosphere. But not really the hostel's fault. It's the people that make it.
