people do not snore :)
People do not snore, good breakfast, location is fine, not enough outlets in the room to charge your phone.

Fair 4.0
cold showers and smoke
The location and the staff were nice but that was about it. There was not hot water for showers, the bed sheets were so thin I could feel the vinyl matress underneath stick to my skin and the room smelled like smoke. Also there were only 2 lockers in the room for 4 people.

Normal above average hostel
Everything was normal and fine, at a great price. Nice to have shower and sink shared in the room. Only minor complaint is the wifi didnt work well in the room.

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!
