Thank god this was just the last night of our trip.
The hostel looks really nice on the website and on the photos... In reality it is not.
The idea itself is really nice but there needs to be done more than a lot to make it happen.
The lounge room in the basement is terrible.
It is so humid that it stinks extremely badly.
All the computers were broken.
Free wifi was the slowest wifi I have had since years.
Staff seemed uninterested, distant and cold.
You do not get an official receipt of your payment, just a small paper with a stamp with some different company name.
Our room was dirty and was not cleaned before our stay.
The bed was full with different hairs and the floor was really dirty.
We have booked a room with garden view but actually there is no garden.
It is just the view of the park beside the hostel.
Both of us have woken up often in the night due to loud guests and loud staff.
Not recommended for light sleepers!
So what was nice? Free coffee and the kitchen.
When we asked staff what the breakfast did include he could not give a clear answer besides "uuuuh cornflakes uuuuh uuuuuh" and looked stoned.
The toilet was dirty and next morning it was not cleaned either.
We checked out as early as possible.
This hostel is a joke.
