    Bed bugs, staff really rude, moving rooms”

    Bed bugs /pluskwy English below. UWAGA, cena wychodzi 15 euro za noc jedna osoba. Nie polecam, bardzo niegrzeczny personel, trudności z dogadaniem się z.gosciem z recepcji który ewidentnie nie chciało mu się gadać i jadł sobie chipsy, szok... W kocnu chcieliśmy dostać pokój... Zapłaciliśmy za 4 dni po dwóch dniach się wynieslimy. Przychodzimy w nocy idziemy do swojego pokoju i okazuje się że zmienili pokój, nasze rzeczy tam zostały... Dostaliśmy inny pokój i podwójne łóżko a jako że nie jesteśmy parą to trochę dziwnie. Rano okazało się że jesteśmy ja i moja koleżanka pogryzioni przez pluskwy... Odrazu się wynieslimy na hotel wyprać rzeczy żeby tego do domu nie przywieść I can't recommend at all, staff very rude on desk,not willing to help/explain I booking and paid for 4 nights. We had been two nights. We came back home at night for second night and staff shut previously room and move us to other. In the morning we find out it is a bed bugs. That's was to much for us.

    I do not recommend”

    Upon arrival at the hostel it turned out that even though I paid for 2 rooms is only 1 and I have to pay the extra 67 EUR for the second room. When I showed them my confirmation, it turned out that after 40 min get 1 six-person room. Additionally we demanded from us to pay for clean sheets 2,5 EUR per person + tax. I do not recommend. Stay away from this place.

    Apparently the kitchen was meant for the bar. Although there was a microwave, you were not allowed to use it as there was no PowerPoint for the plug. Otherwise, it was worth the money.
