      Worse than hostels in Cambodia”

      We walked in the front door of the hostel to see piles human feces in the entryway, we we're unable to check in until 630PM, there were 2 bathrooms for 12 rooms all of which more than 1 guest, and no toilet paper. The kitchen is a joke, there are no eating utensils at all. and as far as I could see only a single fry pan. This is literally the worst hostel I've ever stayed in bar none. It only has two things going for it, it's relatively near the train station and it doesn't have bedbugs. Stay somewhere else.

      shady people”

      Jacob was excellent. He made the stay good. The French manager was quite rude. He would come around 7am and speak loudly. So much so that I could hear him from my room. This happened daily and woke me up. Other than that, he was fine. There are shady young punks who smoke weed and beggars always in the ground floor of the building so it felt a little shady. I definitely would not go there if I had kids. They leave you alone though. The heating was non-existent. It was very cold at night. As the 3-storey bunks were connected (6 beds were connected), if one moved, all beds would feel it= kinda restless nights. It is near the train station and the main shopping street. Pro tip: take bus 23 from Gambetta to the airport. costs only 1.50 euros. takes about 20 mins to walk there with luggage.

      If you need to save money as much as possible, you can pick this hotel. It was the cheapest I had found in town center and nearby the train station.

      Great for the intended purpose”

      I had to stay find a place to stay overnight in order to catch an early flight in the morning and for that, Hotel Altair was perfect. The staff were nice, although there was one guy who made me a little uncomfortable. I'm not sure if he was staff or just a friend of one of the staff and I only had to deal with him once so it wasn't a deal breaker. For what you pay, you get a great deal. The bed is relatively comfortable, the bathroom is nice and clean, and you are provided with a locker, free wifi and a power point. The location is great, close to the station and a bunch of shops. If I was traveling with a friend then I would probably stay here again.

      Staff is nice but the boss is rude”

      People will smoke inside the room. Guest can only check out at 8am. The boss didn't allow me check out before 8am which is very inflexible. And he is rude. It nearly makes me miss the flight!

      Centrally located near the train station and beach. This hostel provides basic accommodation but with prices that low it was about what I expected. May have been nice to have been given a blanket as well.

      Not very clean nor friendly. Deposit is as expensive as 30euros. Charge to leave baggage after checkout. Only good thing is the close location to the centre.

      centrally located hostel with nice staff”

      location, location, location

      It's located next to the Notre Dame, which connects with the main boulevard leading to the main square and the beach. It's very close to the railway station too, if you know how to navigate the small alleys. The district is populated by many ethnicities, with many exotic shops. Room is just basic, with bath but shared toilet. Bed gets very warm because of its material, and you don't get any sheet, which won't be a problem in summer anyway. Staff is friendly and kitchen is closed in the evening and checkout time is very early, 10:30.

      Above average”

      Slapen op een vrouwenkamer 3 -hoge stapelbedden,de matrassen kraakten bij iedere beweging plastic hoezen. De toilet maakte enorm veel lawaai bij het doorspoelen en de douche heel erg klein. De gezamelijke ruimte sluit om 23.00 waardoor je genoodzaakt wordt om buiten te vertoeven. Personeel gaat weg na 23.00 en je moet de sleutel inleveren voor die tijd als je vroeg vertrekt de volgende morgen, je moet dan aan kamergenoten vragen om hun sleutel ergens neer te leggen om uit de kamer te kunnen. Keukentje erg vies en ondeugdelijk materiaal zoals bv waterkoker
