Positive Reviews

Great location

Guests love the hostel for its central location in the city with the Main Square, Cathedral, and Metro Station all within a five-minute walking distance. There are numerous places to eat nearby which adds to the convenience.

Affordable price

The hostel is quite inexpensive considering the prime location and the clean facilities it offers. Travellers on all types of budget find this a great place to stay.

Hearty breakfast

The hostel's complimentary continental breakfast is highly appreciated by the guests. The taste is good and quantity more than sufficient.

Negative Reviews

Connectivity issues

Guests face a lot of trouble inside the building for cellular connectivity which is very weak which makes using cellular data for internet usage a big hassle. On top of that, the Wi-Fi is also very weak inside the rooms and strong only in the lobby area.

Shortage of bathrooms

The hostel has shared bathrooms only on specific floors which makes it troublesome for the guests not staying on those floors. The women’s bathrooms are only on one floor which adds to the inconvenience. Furthermore, mornings can become a bit crowded with everyone making a beeline for the bathrooms.

Lack of light and ventilation

Many of the rooms here have no windows or windows facing internal corridors, which can make the place feel somewhat suffocating with the lack of natural light. Guests feel uncomfortable in their rooms and prefer spending time in the common area.
