Reviews (9.0 Excellent)
It was a perfect place for the amount of time we spent there. The only thing we regret is... not having more days to spend there. Great place, super-nice staff!
When we were the people were really quite and closed. Nobody were chating, that was surprising. But on the otherhand the hostel is great, clean and its location is superb. Restaurants and bars can be found next to it with good price and atmosphere. We stayed there 5 days and we honestly recommend it!!!
I reserved a single women's dorm room for the week of June 22- June 26, 2012. According to the website, accomodations were to include lockers, but there were not any available, forcing me to leave my i-pad, phone charger, and luggage in a non-secured area. On June 25, I returned to the Hostel to find the chair that I had left my phone charger on missing from the area completely, my charger also gone. I asked the desk manager if someone had by chance turned in my charger, and was met with accusations that I had not done my part, following up each day to see if there was a locker available! That had not been my point, initially, as all I was wondering is if someone had placed my charger behind the desk when the chair was moved. As he became more aggressive, I pulled out my phone to record the conversation, at which time he physically assaulted me, grabbing my arm to get the phone, and pulling me across the counter, where I smashed my ribs. After he returned my phone, I was told to leave, which I did. This was at 9:08 pm on June 25. After returning home, I went to my doctor, and it was established that I have bruising on several ribs from the incident. This buisness does not produce what is offered on the website, and the employees are at best, dismissive, at worse, engage in assault on residents.
The experience was great, but the only problem was I didn't have wi fi conection. Eventough there was a user and they gave me the passport, it didn't work in the end.
Good option if you like a short stay near the city.
