Single Bed in 6-Bed Mixed Dormitory Room
Stayed 4 nights in February 2021

Use the card when get in, also when get out for noise free”

I want to mention that I found out that those doors with electronic card could be noise free if the guests touches the card to open the door when gets in, also when gets out, in order to control it with the handle, so will be noise free. I will appreciate if they put non smokers and non alcohol in different room then smokers, (this is a general rule, but probably no one hostel respect it unfortunately ).

alright”

location, price, avaliable shower gel and shampoon in bathrooms

it was fine until i met rude cleaner Martin. Seems to me he doesnt like white guys at all. Really is so hard saying to guests 'good morning/hello' when he meet them? more politennes would be fine.

They manage the fridges and the self well. They separate the things owned by the customers and the leftovers. we can use the food, sauce, shampoo and showing gel which is the leftovers. It would be better if there are lockers for each rooms and the space to take shower can be a little bit larger. I satisfied for the stay.

Great location but doesnt smell good”

location-wise is fine as it locates in zone 1

all the paintings in the hostel is really beautiful and I really appreciate those artwork, however the ventilation of the hostel isn't that good so the paint smell keeps staying in the corridors and makes the place not as nice as it looks. The bathroom and toilet is clean. There aren't enough plugs for everyone in the room. The receptionists are all very nice and really helpful.
