Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hostel is very nice and a good value for money, also considering that it's quite central and connected. If you stay there, you're entitled to a free dinner, which is really good! Moreover, people in the staff are always helpful, experienced and friendly. They offer many different activities - we spent amazing time with Pedro from staff!

The location and the kind staff make this place really special. The staff Julia, Mati, Tülin, Rafa, Magda, Pedro and Areti are always willing to help. I highly recommend this place because you get free breakfast, delicious free dinners, social events every day and you get to know many people from all over the world.

Conveniently located nearby a tube station, there's also a supermarket very close. Breakfast and free dinner provided if you sign up. Kitchen available for cooking. Nice and helpful staff. Could be cleaner in the rooms. It would need a good spring clean of the dorms.
