Bad experience, won’t come back
Terrible hostel, we couldn’t even stand up in the room. Bathroom was very dirty (someone shaved the beard and left the dirty behind).

2/10 Poor

Well the good points first: I see they do make regular efforts to keep the place clean there are cool art installations on all the walls the location is very central The downsides: (buckle in) it’s extremely claustrophobic, it’s hard to even navigate between the bunks without sticking your knee in your neighbour’s face. I’m not all that big but I couldn’t sit in the bottom bunk without hitting my head, & there wasn’t space for everyone’s things to go. The kitchen/ small common room area hours are pretty limiting. And one whole day staff were overhauling the space, with stuff absolutely everywhere and were painting the chairs- so the space couldn’t be used even in opening hours to grab a quick bite. *Some of my food was stolen The street sounds of bars and traffic are SUPER loud at night WORST of all: One of the guests in our room had a medical emergency in the middle of the night while he was sleeping. Luckily others noticed and together managed to call an ambulance and get him medical attention….so it was very fortunate everyone collectively had the skills, maturity, and language abilities to deal with the situation. But what completely shocked me is that there is NO NIGHT TIME STAFF- (not even an on-call emergency phone number listed anywhere) to get ahold of any staff in an extreme situation like this!!!! (And I was looking everywhere). We just dealt with the situation ourselves and tried to go back to sleep after the paramedics left. Incredible lack of care.

First of all, the number to the property that is given in the app doesn’t work. The after we came to the hostel we were told that despite the fact that they accepted our reservation and on Expedia wrote that the room is suitable for 4 people, they don’t have place for us. They send us to the other hostel, which was far away from city center, the room had such a low ceiling that we all had to walk around it bending down.

Don’t deserve any stars
It is the worst hostel I’ve ever been to. Rooms don’t look like on photo from ad. My room was on first floor, totally disaster. I couldn’t stand straight because of the sloping ceiling, small and dirty. I could hear everything that was going on in the corridor and other rooms (even someone snoring). Bathroom shared, low standard and again not clean. Check in is only till midnight and because my flight was delayed I had to pay for a late check in 10€. The receptionist ask for pay, quickly showed me a room, and left. Didn’t even informed where bathroom was. After one night, or actually few hours I change hotel for Efesto B&B and I was glad I did it. If you’re planning to stay there ask for a room on ground floor, it might be better.
