1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Pillow, blanket, and bed were dirty and had multiple stains on them. I didn't use the blanket as it seems most hostels in Europe don't wash them between guests. I watched as housekeeping placed new linens on the bed, but didn't change out the blankets on any of the beds. Gross. I barely slept after I found bedbugs crawling around. The bathroom is in the room which sometimes can be a good thing, but this one had a frosted wall in the shower so every time someone used the bathroom in the middle of the night, the bright light would wake them up. Plus, horrible construction right outside the hostel. Spend more money and stay elsewhere. Not recommended.
