When you are drunk you don't need towels, shower or comfortable bed. Hostel is easy to reach by walk from central station, but its the last positive. In their offer are towels, but you dont get them, because towels doesn't mean towels but beddingclothes. Rooms are spatial, its guiet, but stuff are bored and not nice.

It was probably the worst hostel I ever visited. We had to pay at the counter more than we expected. There was no shower, just a bath. Staff was not kind. Beds was not comfortable. Really bad experience. Fortunately, we spent just 6 hours in.

he check out time is very early 10:30AM we asked for late check out but the staff said it's not possible at all, the room itself was below expectation, it was expensive comparing to what we got. the only good thing was the hotel location.

Fairly clean, wifi works and hot shower. What else can you ask for? Staff not so nice. And one thing I don't like it's that there is no key for the dorms. It's not so far from centre, a lot of markets and near-by and also a Burger King. There's a spot to rent bikes near here (only 4,50€!!)

I wish I could give zero stars because this so called Hostel is really bad! When we arrived at the Hostel we should pay a lot more money than was written in the bill of budgetplaces. They said I had to confirm my creditcard 24 hours before arrival in order to make the final reservation for the room or something...

The hostel was nice and clean to stay in, but the people that work there are very uneducated and rude. The workers never smiled, and when you ask for something they act like they better things to do. They smelled really bad all the time like they never bath. Just all around very poor service.

Simply don't go We were 6 friends and we were looking for a place to sleep not spending too much money but this hostel was not a good choice. We shared a private room and it was not so bad, we even had a terrace. We had shared bathroom and it seemed that it wasn't cleaned in years. But the...

Granted it was off-season when I visited (March), but it shouldn't be open if it's not really fit for habitation. When I arrived, I was charged an extra 12 euros for sheets (bear in mind I stayed 3 nights). I thought this was a deposit - it wasn't, it was an unlisted extra charge. The bar area was never in...
