5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Like stay in one own house
Lovely tiny hostel in the old town with shops and shopping center close by. There are also many church and museums, fine dining too. The only draw back is all the wooden doors are heavy cause big noise when open or close,

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My worst experience in hostels. I was in the first floor. A single bathroom for 16 people. The door of my room was in the kitchen. Noise until late at night and super early in the morning for all who used the kitchen. There were people eating at 1 am and making noise. The kitchen sink did not work and they washed the dishes in the sink. Disgusting. Outdated bathroom and bad shower drain. Please always lock the door room because people entered the room without knocking and without belonging to it. There were 2 moments in which got ugly among people in the room of 12 people. Fortunately not fight but discussion. The only good thing was the location. Mi peor experiencia en hostales. Me toco el primer piso. Un solo baño para 16 personas. La puerta de mi habitacion estaba en la cocina. Ruido hasta altas horas de la noche y super temprano en la manana por todos los q usaban la cocina. Habia gente comiendo de madrugada y haciendo ruido. El fregadero de la cocina no funcionaba y lavaban los platos en el lavamanos. Q asqueroso. Baño outdated y drenaje de la ducha malo. Por favor pongan el ceguro a la habitacion pq La gente entraba a la habitacion sin tocar y sin pertenecer a ella. Hubo 2 momentos en los cuales la cosa se puso fea entre personas de la habitacion de 12 personas. Lo unico bueno que tiene es la ubicacion.

Cozy hostel in a great location
Great location but parking is a bit tough. The hostel is clean and has comfortable beds. Rooms are small but have what you need. The sink in the room was nice. Can’t beat being in the center of old town for a reasonable price.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not great
Just ok. Service was very Russian, which is to say to the point and no small-talk. Upon checking in, I was told that there was a very large group of 25 (!) people checking in. They were very loud and made a ton of noise both during the day and late at night. Room was shabby. Clean enough but not very nice.
