    Great Location and Value for Money......butGreat Location and Value for Money but The bunk beds are a bit low. If you are on the bottom bunk, you can’t even sit because the top bunk is so low. There are also no curtains per bed, so if you want some privacy, you can’t have it. The staff are all great and helpful

    Not felt safety at all”

    24 hrs reception, Good location and Clean

    The hostel using room card to access to our room like 4 stars hotel is appreciate and seems very safe. However, my experience was totally terrified. I had a single room for two nights there. The last night of my stay I went to sleep around 11pm. After few moment I heard that someone opened my door and closed very soon. Since my room was like at a roof that open the door, take few steps up to get into the bed. Then after like 5 more minutes, I felt my door opened again and I got up at once. I was really shock that my door was opened by a female staff of the hostel. And she hid behind the door asked if my room had any heater. She did say sorry after I said no. How do you suppose that a single room door can be opened by anyone even he/she is staff of the hostel. With this experience I will never choose and recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Dinners, cleanliness, vibe

    The beds were very uncomfortable and 1 bunk bed even broke for a friend, the wifi was absolutely shocking! Worse then dial up.. But the staff were very helpful and the hostel was a great place to meet people and socialise. The location was right next to a shopping mall if your into that and about a 10 minute bus ride from the beach. All in all it was a pretty average place.

    My stay was astounding. By far the best hostel in Europe! If you stay at the hipstel, expect 5-star treatment, great facilities, excellent staff, pub crawls, dinner is served every night by a great chef for only 5 euro. You won't be disappointed if you book a room or bed at the Hipstel.

    Cheap

    Bad! Some of my belongings - a towel and a rigid bag - completely disappeared the second day I was there. The cleaning staff thought I had checked out, so they decided to leave me without the blankets and the forementioned belongings. Then she gave me another towel and blankets. That was good, but it is terrible that anything you have can get lost because the staff gets confused.
