Clean, cheap and friendly!
This was a great place to stay. Staff friendly, allowed you to use padlock and printer free of charge. I stayed in a female dorm but will still had our own toilet and spotless bathroom. Close to the metro station. Would definitely recommend!

3/5 Okay

You get what you pay for
We don’t usually stay at youth hostels so we can’t comment on the standard of this hostel compared to others. I felt uncomfortable using the sheets or towels that the hostel was charging for, and I was thankful to have brought my own. There was a questionable stain on the plastic mattress that I tried to avoid, whichmade sleeling uncomfortable. We had a private bathroom which was very clean, so that was good. The bins were emptied daily and the staff were kind. I think this hostel would be much better suited to people looking for a more social trip.
