    My and my friends stayed at this hostel after sziget. We had prebooked by hostelworld and made a reservation that we could enter our room at 10 am. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Also because of the cupboards the hallways are really narrow and the whole flat is like a one big hallway. I would recommend steering clear...

    The flat is only in summer used as a hostel. The other time of the year Erasmus students are living there. I spent four month there. During the first month we found some mice in our department. The flat has seven bedrooms and is full of cupboards. The flatowner gave us only 2 (!!!!!!) traps....so we had to buy some...
