This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Remembering that this is a hostel I thought that this was one of the best I have stayed in. Hot water for shower, some cooking facilities like microwave and hobs. There is free filter coffee and free WIFI. I stayed here on my own for 4 nights in a 4 bed mixed room, which was comfy and clean enough. There are lockers, bring your own padlock! There is a small social area which gets very busy, but this is a good place to meet and chat to others. They charge an extra 50 for the sheets too, but that's not too bad over a few nights. Overall not a bad place.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Best place I stayed so far given the price/quality ratio, it surpassed all expectations.
Great place to meet people, nice conditions, safe.
Rooms with lockers, bring a lock.
No internet estabilished yet but that is due to the fact it's brand new.
Good location, close to train/bus station and within walking distance of most places.
And Yana and Slava from staff helped to make this a memorable experience.
Had lot's of fun with other guests.
The space, the facilities and the hygene level of this hostel have not been designed with the visitor's comfort in mind. The rooms are awfully small for the number of beds, and either without windows or with windows that are not designed to open. There is no working ventilation system in the whole establishment, which makes the smell and atmosphere unpleasant. There are no lockers, no shelves, no clothes' hungers. There is never a dry toilet, and never sufficient toilet paper; the latter usually hangs out on the floor, because there is no other place to put it. The toilet sharing is dual between girls and boys, and the showers (which are separate) are altogether in an open space. The kitchen would hardly satisfy the needs of a student apartment, in size and in facilities. There is no living room, apart from 5 tables with chairs.
The hostel though has more than 40 rooms, many of which with 12-14 beds. Contrary to what is advertized, there is no internet connection.
Unless insisting, you do not get a receipt for the money paid. It's all black!
What guarantees that the above situation is not going to improve in the future is the inconsiderate and ironic attitude of the people who work at the hostel. Typical responses in complaints are that "free sheets are provided while other hostels do not do so", "if you are unhappy with the situation this is not necessarily our problem" and "so now you have a new complaint?".
In short, for a hostel which operates for less than a month, this is a very bad start! I wish they could not continue like this.

Location is great. The staff was so friendly. I like this hostel.
