Shitbag hostel
They didn't let me reside due to my stolen passport. They told me they didn't bill my stay even though the money is gone. I have a very tight budget and they are meddling with my money. They should not do that. I want my money in my account asap to get basic food.

Great if you have low standards
Great hostel if you like dirty places and noise.Staff were helpful at times but felt more like a rehabilitation centre than a hostel.Toilet barely hanging in there.Police called in around 2am the 2nd night to remove some guest. Location not too bad. Staff were alright but place needs improvement.Good room

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Expedia quote will not be the same at the hostel. I was charged more on arrival because apparently fashion week makes this particular hostel more expensive. Bunk beds need to be stripped out & repurchased. Genuinely woke up & thought I had sea sickness because of the constant movement from my slumbering roommate below me. No small lights per bed like in other hostels, so had to deal with people constantly turning the light on & not turning it off until 1am. Door didn’t lock so people could walk in & out from other rooms & actually straight in from the street as the two doors to access hostel didn’t need to be buzzed into for a majority of my stay (3 nights). When I asked for a key to the room (pointless), I was told it was €5. No towels - bring your own. Bedding could also be updated. Personally wouldn’t stay here again. There are much nicer hostels for around the same price.
