Nice”

It was a calm and comfortable place to stay. Location is quite good for me. It's right behind the Liszt academy. Staffs were quite nice. Hygiene was not bad but you have to keep one thing in mind that there were lots of hair in the blanket so it is ESSENTIAL to put a cover.. but other than that it was a good place to stay.

the door was closed, I had to go at night”

This hostel was no-friendly. I reserved 2nights and I handed the message, during my first stay, that I would be come back again in PM11 after three nights, A staff said we would wait me and a staff would stay in this hostel. But after three nights, I came back to this hostel. No staff was there, the door was closed and a foreigner could not easily by telephone. In this hostel, no staff was there after 6 PM, it was unfriendly hostel for visitors in spate of the name.

near metro, free tee

A staff was so kind, but in my first visit, he and the owner said I had to move another hostel because of their overbooking. I saw another customer also had to change because of their overbooking. Even I reserved my stay for a long time before, they would do overbooking easily. And it was too difficult to find this hostel after I arrived to the street. Please to tell how to find small button in the entrance.

A brilliant time!”

Fast Internet. Great staff. Homely.

I had a very great time at the hostel. Due to the style of this hostel, it did not feel like a hostel, or hotel, it felt much more homely with very nice and useful staff. The rooms were always immaculate and the bedroom was always clean, warm, and fresh. I would highly recommend this place to others in future. Especially with its great location in the city.

Very good”

Se suposava que recepció era de 8h a 23h, però al nadal, tot i que al cartells i la web posi de 8 a 23, fan horari reduït. Aneu amb compte si volíeu deixar les maletes perquè no les vam poder deixar el temps que volíem perquè tancaven abans i a la tarda/vespre vam haver de rondar per la ciutat amb la maleta. A part que a les 8 no hi havia ningú a recepció per fer el check-out i deixar les maletes i no podíem esperar ja que teníem un tour programat per les 9. Gràcies al senyor de la neteja que ens va posar en contacte amb el jefe. A part, et fan pagar x cada bulto. No sé si serà del matalàs o llençols però la meva parella i jo vam marxar amb picades del que sembla puça. Com a positiu, el millor la ubicació, l'amabilitat dels treballadors, l'atmosfera de tranquil·litat, lavabos i cuines recent renovades amb un estil modern, cafè i tè gratuït.
