Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Loud and rude partypeople, no quiet at night, no free wifi (only for an hour) and not really free breakfast (you get cereals - without milk - C'mon!). A lot of drinking happens there, doors cannot be closed without causing noise (especially front gate), bathrooms are not clean at all, employees are not motivated to do a good job. Take your earplugs with you and you might happen to get few hours of sleep. Not recommendable.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great vibe, the hostel has a brilliant atmosphere which makes it easy to meet new people!
