        Promising new hostel but poor execution. The hostel is brand new with a nice design and features. They had a decent sized kitchen for guest use and a nice lounge area to relax in. The beds were also really comfortable.

        The hostel didnt really avcomodate the needs of travellers, it seemed promising but wasnt well thought out. Some examples; no powerpoints in rooms, no light switches either (controlled by reception we believe but werent told this), no rubbish bins either. The showers are in cubicles with no where to hang your towel or place your clothes - there is no space to get changed either as the cubicle is the same size as that of a toilet so everything gets wet from the shower. There were no hand dryers or paper towel in the toilet room either so you had to take your own towel to the toilet each time. There were plenty of hand basins but they were placed right next to each other leaving no bench space to put belongings.

        Very clean and quiet hostel

        Room lighting is centralized (at the reception!) and there is no possibility of individual light, so you can sleep with the lights on all night or on the contrary, if you go later, you risk doing things in a completely dark. There are completely unheated rooms (112) and for cooler days this is a problem.

        the hostel was safe and close to nearby amenities such as food stores, cafe's, bars and restaurants within walking distance.

        Good location.

        There aren't no where to get dressed in private without getting your stuff stay wet in the bathrooms. There aren´t toilet paper to clean the hands. There aren't rules for all visitors, the rooms are like a hell, lot dirty.

        Staff are very kind and happy to help! Kitchen is good and I like the design of public area! It's in the city center and near metro station!

        Too many people stay in a room and its very loud in the midnight because the rooms could barely against noise in corridor and other rooms
