I don't have a massive experince with hostels and stayed just in a few but Crown Hostel is the only one which deserves an aweful review. The hostel claims to be 'convenient place with comfortable rooms'. In fact all room amenities are two 3 storey beds and hangers on the wall. No basic furniture like table and chairs. The room itself looks no more comfy than prison room. Toilets and showers are clean but look like public toilets at the station with no liquid soaps and shower gels. The hostel is lacking kitchenette or dining area, where guests can warm up their ready made lunches. I witnessed a bloke was eating on the stares.
About 4am two boozy ladies came in, made such a mess trying to find a lock for a pad locker and woke up everyone. I could not last any longer.
In most places managers doing their best to make a hostel cosy, friendly, warm and feel-like-at home place. Definetely not in case with Crown best inn!
