My friends and I needed information on how to get to the airport. We asked one of the staff members and he called his friend to give us a "good" deal. He said this cab company charges 75 euro but I can get it to 50 euro because you are guest here....we went outside, stopped a cab and found out its a 30 euro flat rate to the airport we were going to (these fares are written on the cab doors, fyi). For a place that emphasizes family, one of there staff members tried to run a scam on us. We went back to the staff member to confront him regarding this issue. He responsed by denying such a low fare and making excuses. Simply pathetic!
The hostel itself is comfortble but it lacks a central area to meet other travellers. They provide laundry service for 6 euros to the tenants and unlimited internet usage. There is free wifi, however, its slow, very slow. The bathrooms and the rooms are cleaned everyday. This includes new sheets and covers.
Minus the one staff member that tried to scam us with the good deal, this hostel is well kept and in perfect location (near the train station). However, if you are looking to meet people, my suggestion is book at the yellow hostel as the funny palace only serves as a roof over your head for the night.
