    Well situated for the nearby stations,and 2 mins from Metro-- so useful for a one night stay Cheap it is true, but rooms are often overcrowded. If you are not travelling on a budget better off somewhere else, .

    Stayed here for a weekend with 5 friends when we came from the UK for a couple of concerts. Was very concerned when I read the reviews but it really wasn't that bad. Our room had 1 bunk bed and a double bunk bed, none of which had any bedbugs and were comfortable enough. The communal area / kitchens are...

    Me and a friend booked this hostel for the start of our inter railing trip as it was the cheapest! The place is quite small and cramped but there is a kitchen you can use and a nice outside area. Apart from the outside, there isn't really a nice communal area, just a dark room with some tables in. The...

    Check in was no hassle and the room looked very basic and small but we were not too fussy. After the first uncomfortable night we were rudely woken by people telling us to get out because they had to clean the rooms for the next 2/3 hours, getting ready to start our day we tried to look for an unblocked...

    I chose the hostel for the convenient location across from the Metro Station. I arrived at 9 pm. After I paid for the room fee, I found The place is nothing but a bunch of dirty bunk beds crowded in smelly rooms. No common room, no kitchen. Staff tried to scam me off in the morning by saying that check...

    We were two girls and were scared to stay in this place which looked like a haloween horror house. Dark rooms, no kitchen, not enough toilets, dirty (not even a hand wash in the dirty toilets), very unsafe neighbourhood (definite no if you are a solo traveller), no heater in the room (we were freezing while reception stayed toasty warm)...

    The staff were very nice, and the cleanliness wasnt the worst I've seen, but the location is terrible and the owner's extremely unsympathetic. As a solo (experienced) female traveller I did not feel comfortable c the 50 meters from the metro station to the front door, during the day! Didn't even attempt it at night. I had a resevation for...

    Congratulations, Friend's hostel! You were the last hostel I visited in my Europe travelling and I went to over 20 hostels in that trip but I found this to be the most unpleasant. My room was tiny and my bed did not have any frames or stairs which meant I had to climb somebody else's bed to get up on...

    I don´t recommend this place, at all. Bad localization(except about the train station in front of the hostel, aven so the neighbourhood are dangerous), terrible rooms with so many bugs...I hated! Be very careful.
