Not good”

Bathroom not clean, shower collects water so you need to wait until it's gone. Moreover, they just cancelled my next booking without any notification beforehand, so when arrived there at night I had to find a new place to stay! Luckily it was low season so there were other hostels available. Otherwise I would stay outside during the night😥

Upon arrival at the hostel it turned out that even though I paid for 2 rooms is only 1 and I have to pay the extra 67 EUR for the second room. When I showed them my confirmation, it turned out that after 40 min get 1 six-person room. Additionally we demanded from us to pay for clean sheets 2,5 EUR per person + tax. I do not recommend. Stay away from this place.
