I'll start with the 2 positive things about this hostel.. It's location since it is very close to the main square and has a nice park in front.. Also the price is excellent when travelling on a budget. However, the hostel is dark, gloomy and depressing. There are a few 60 year old men knocking around who have taken permanent residence in the hostel and who sleep in the rooms. It's not a nice experience when it feels like your grandad is watching over you and constantly trying to tell you off. The bathrooms were clean most of the time but old fashioned and tiny with no space to put toiletry bags etc. The staff were quite friendly and helped to organise the trips but most the time they just sit on the computer. At midnight they close the main door so you have to ring a buzzer which doesn't work so we were stuck outside for over an hour! Ridiculous. There's no atmosphere in this hostel the rules mean you have to be silent after 11 and the old man ensures that you have as little fun as possible. Creepy and not worth it.
