Citi hostel has a wonderful location and is very close to the tram, train and the bus stops, for example it appears that the train runs through the building itself. When we arrived we were greeted pleasantly and told we would have to wait 6 hours until the cleaners were finished with our room. Fair enough... And thankfully they are happy to store your bags in a locked room for no extra charge. Upon arriving back at the agreed upon time we were greeted with surprised looks and a frantic scrambling. The cleaners had just finished with the room, which is a private room with it's own bathroom. Upon entering the place looked nicely made up. The bathroom was grubby but acceptable if you don't suffer from claustrophobia or if you for some reason believe that the stainless steel cube of a shower isn't a prison cell from area 52. The bed was quite good and the heavy wooden shutters on the windows were great for blocking out the noise and also for leaving gaping holes in the wall which previous residents have used for ashtrays. When closing the shutters beware the crack in the roof which opens and spills a few gallons of foul 'water' on your luggage. Although after 48 hours when they sent the handy man to have a look (it turns out it was the drunk who woke us at 5:30am that morning by banging at the door yelling for his daughter) who looked at the crack and merely said "ugh I'll look upstairs".
