I stayed 2 nights in a 6 bed dorm.
Close to the main train station and to the main bus station so you don't have to carry your luggage around that much. The day of checkout we could leave our luggage there and pick it up later.
The staff was really very, very, very nice and friendly!! These two stars are only for the staff!
Free wifi & internet/computer use.
Airconditioning cold & warm.
The bathrooms are dirty. It looks ok at first sight but only because of the pattern of the tiles. I stepped inside the shower and I realised there was hair, old shampoo (gotten black), general dirt and dust, mildew on the ceiling and the floor was wet all over. And this was not in the evening, you know, when all the guest already took a shower. The next day it was just the same, so they really didn't clean.
I had hair in my bed linen, too, and not just one little hair, no, a whole bunch of it.
My bed was squiecking with every little move, even while just moving my head!
The Hostel is close to the main train station and there is also a tram going right in front of our window and traffic lights which beep every 30 seconds. And the trains don't stop going at night time. So you can imagine the noise. EVEN EARPLUGS DONT HELP! If was impossible to have a good sleep.
It seemed like there was a homeless guy staying at the same room as we did. So far, so good, but he was smelling and stinking like hell, no exaggeration(!!), I had to hold my breath while passing him and the whole room was smelly. He was walking around the Hostel in his underwear. He was snoring and walking around at night time making a lot of noise with the door, flushing his nose and searching something in his luggage (luggage = plastic bags). Of course, it's not the hostel's fault, but they really should take a closer look at whom they let stay, especially in shared rooms.
I really don't understand why Palmers Lodge got such good references!
