This building appears to be Soviet era - dauntingly impersonal in scale. It was a very hot night, and the building captured even more heat - as you went upstairs it got worse. We had a 2nd floor ensuite which was great if tiny - I had to clean my teeth with my head underneath the shelf - but it meant we could leave windows open all night to try to cool the room down. However, the noise was dreadful - we stayed on a Friday night and there was shouting, shrieking, car doors slamming, cars revving etc.until around 3am. A great deal of it was people returning to the hostel, and being noisy both outside and inside the building - totally thoughtless behaviour. We didn't try to use the kitchen as it was too crowded including no room in the fridge. Not a good experience.
