“Is not what is advertised - do not run the risk to book”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Hostel has a different name from the one above, if you look for it, even though street name and number are the same. Local people seem not to have heard of it, which makes it difficult to find. The room I was offered was different fro the ones shown on the site; in fact there was no material partition between room and bathroom - a scanty curtain surely shouldn't count - thus I was shown a large wc/bathroom with a bed and TV set to keep the illusion that it was a room rather than a toilet. Worst of all - staff and owners were aware that similar to my reaction occur when people see the room and wouldn't do anything to amend the situation. Finally - it would be fare to either separate toilet from bedroom or show in pictures and description what they actually offer. Dealing with such degree of mischief after 22 hrs of travelling, in a foreign city, at night, is to nobody's taste.
