Liked: We liked that it was quiet so we were able to sleep. It was close to a metro station and they gave us a map and even told us where to go.

Disliked: we did not like the hot plate that served as a stove. It was better than nothing and got the job done but it wad not the easiest to use.

Liked: the kitchen was good so you may cook your own meals

Disliked: There are a lot of things that I didn't like about this hostel. First of all, the staff was totally unfriendly and rude, they have this hostel specifically for making money and not because they enjoy in it. Secondly, the internet was crap and it was available only in the lobby where they kick you out if they feel like sleeping in the only couch available. If you stay here, you will be warned many times not to be loud although the staff and the fridge in the lobby make more noise themselves. The rooms were really hot, there were only three plugs available in 16 bed room, "air-conditioners" were occupying two of them. And lastly, you cannot feel safe in this hostel and you need to carry your stuff with you all the time. Totally not worth the money, please avoid!

Liked: When i got off metro i just ask to first person i've seen on the way then it was very easy to get there. So it is bette to ask somebody after metro. I like the stuff and cleanliness. I really liked the room which included kitchen and rest room.

Disliked: I didn't like beds :/ not very comfortable and not very high bunk so be carefull not to crash you head. Also because of the noice in the kitchen it was hard to sleep. But after closing the window it is ok. I stayed in june so the weather was a bit hot to close the window.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful. They told us the important places to visit and how to get there. The hostel also provides each person with their own huge locker and key, so we felt safe leaving our valuables in the hostel instead of taking them around the city with us. There is also a really nice kitchen so we could cook. And the hostel is very clean too.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Good water pressure and adjustable temperature in the showers. Nice, comfy beds. The owner is friendly, but book this hostel at your own risk.

Disliked: Worst hostel experience ever! Our entire dorm was RANSACKED in the middle of the night while everyone was asleep! Many were ROBBED of their valuables and much cash were stolen and the hostel could not trace the identity of the culprit who checked out in the middle of the night with all the loot. Why? They don't check the passports of people who stay there!

Liked: The staff is helpfull and very friendly, and the place is clean.

Disliked: They could offer and even charge to take care of your luggage for a few hours after you check out, and the same applies about using the toilets/shower. The towel renting is confuse there as well. They also could do some kind of social situation so the guests could interact and for the price they definetly must offer a simple brakefest.

Liked: The best thing about this hostel was the people we met! It's right near the metro station and supermarkets and bling bling! Rooms and bathrooms were clean, had pretty good wifi and common room. Awesome pub crawl run by jonny.. love you jonny!

Disliked: The staff were nice but a bit anal about things. We felt like we were on school camp and getting in trouble for talking after 11pm in our rooms. They made us turn off the lights in room because it went out into the hallway even though we did not want to. The "kitchen" has no stove and is just a microwave and a sink. Don't be fooled! It's a bit out of town so you need to pay to get a taxi home from a night out.

Liked: The owner is very knowledgeable and truly cares about his guests safety and well-being. There is a lot of light in every room and the showers work well, are spacious and clean. The hostel is located right next to several banks, grocery stores and a couple blocks from the metro. Free wifi., comfortable beds, clean sheets, clean and spacious lockers.

Disliked: Not much, it is 10min by metro from the historical centre rather than allowing you to go on foot, but if you choose to come here you have already accepted this and it's close to other major landmarks. The neighbourhood has it's own charm too.
