Very Good 8.0 From 829 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
One day stay
It is great place to stay for few nights. I stayed only one night there and did not spend a lot of time inside the hostel. However, the bar, restirant and the lounge were good and lockers near the reception were very helpful after the check were i had to wait for 6 hours for the buss, so it was very easy to leave my bags in the hostel and enjoy the city while waiting for the bus.

Good 6.0
Ok, but loud music and noisy corridor
Overall ok place to stay for short while. You can hear the music every night from downstairs and often there are school groups staying which results in a bunch of teenagers yelling in corridor and knocking several times on each others doors. Otherwise ok and definitely good if you will go party and dont want to sleep early.

Exceptional 10.0
Had a few days where our room didn’t have soap which was an issue but I just went to other bathrooms that did. Beds very comfortable. Rooms could be noisy from noise outside but personally this didn’t bother me. Very good value for money
