If you can find this place, you'll wish you hadn't
There is no staff or check-in area and signs are not well posted. Good thing I looked up google street view before getting there. Heat was inadequate and we slept in clothes and the sheets had stains on them. The bed was a worn out saggy mattress as are the sofas in the common area. There was no curtain so anyone with a window on the couryard could see through the thin sheer. The clothes wardrobe in our room was missing a door. We couldnt lock the door to the shower room so took turns watching it. The light switch and one outlet in our room were hanging loose on the wall. Wish I had stayed elsewhere.

Nice price, calm, clean and relaxed hostel.
For the price everything was definitely worth it. Clean, nice kitchen, okay rooms. Not quite as close to the city center (old town) as some other hostels, but that was OK for me as I had already been at a closer more party oriented hostel. The price is on the other hand a bit lower, for low cost relaxation or more calm low-intensive explorations of this awesome city, but still close enough so you could take a stroll into old town and take a bar crawl without having to live in there.

Ok hostel with really good location.
Close to Old Town, so fantastically situated. The hostel is a bit worn down. Easy organized key hand over.

Priemerny hostel, ale hned u centra
Hotel v celkovom dojme bol priemerny. Prekvapilo sa, ze nemali recepciu a tak som tapala v sprave od majitela, aby som sa vyznala v tych vsetkych kodoch, ktore mi zaslal do spravy. Komunikovali sme spolu aj telefonicky, ale jeho anglictina bola slabsia. Nakoniec vsetko dobre dopadlo, checkin aj out sme zvladli. Najvacsim sklamanim bola postel - jedna z dvoch sme mali prasknutu a clovek sa prepadaval skoro az na zem. Cistota bola tiez priemerna - na pokoji sme mali cudzie vlasy. Asi by som v tejto zemi a kvalite hostela ocakavala nizsii cenu.
