We booked 2 rooms in advance for 3 days and informed the staff with an e-mail about our late arrival. We did this because it is mentionned on their homepage that check-in is 5pm but later check-in is possible when prenotived. However, when we arrived 10:30pm at the Hostel it was closed. So, we used the bell and a man appeared which simply sended us away asking us to come back again tomorrow because check-in after 9pm is not possible. The man was absolutely unfriendly. So, we had to look for another place to stay in the middle of the night. My advice: pay a bit more but be sure to have a place to stay over night. I will never ever go there again.
