I recently stayed at this weekend with a group of friends - the beds are old and creaky, the bathrooms are very dirty and the rooms are tiny. I understand this is a hostel and you get what you pay for...and so I was kind of expecting all of the above.
What I wasnt expecting was a rude owner and rude staff. They kick you out of the hostel at 11am so that they can 'clean the rooms' - during the clean all they do is go through the bags within the room and take out things that they like the look of. I had a brand new and unopened bottle of whiskey taken out of my bag (confiscated because you cannot take your own alcohol into the hostel - they say they return it on leaving the hostel - in my case they allegedly threw it down the drain)... the rooms, bathroom were not cleaned during this time. I think they just need to additional time to really make sure they havent missed anything good in your belongings.
They also took €200 off my credit card because there was someone smoking in the hostel, they didnt know who it was and could not point out the culprit... so they just assumed it must be someone from our group and without asking debited my CC.
Our group has people who have travelled all over the world living in hostels/hotels/campsites and B&B's and we all agree that this is definitely a hostel to avoid if at all possible... or bring a large padlock for your belongings and be prepared to deal with very strict rules, it wasnt a holiday it was a bootcamp!
