Terrible Customer Service
I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights.. I am a tourist doing solo travelling around Europe. As a traveller from the Far East, I was expecting that Westeners are more helpful and friendly most especially to tourist, similar to Asian hospitality. However, the receptionist in this hostel tends to be annoyed whenever I order drinks and food. He said he is counting his money and told me to wait for the next receptionist coming. He never smiles, very sarcastic and horrible. It is very obvious and I can see from his eyes that he doesn't like his job. He should quit or stay at home.

Simple and inexpensive if that’s what you need
An inexpensive place for a one night stay kind of thing. Free isolated parking (in an area where you would want isolated parking) Pretty easy to get to the city centre.

Save my day
I desperately needed a place to stay for less than 8 hours with parking and not expensive, this hostel was clean with a 24 hours front desk, and a really good breakfast. Reminded me my back packing ages 30 years ago.

An excellent place to stay
El lugar es muy limpio, el estacionamiento muy seguro, el personal muy atento y está muy cerca del centro histórico, los alrededores del hotel están un poco descuidados y el vecindario es feo, pero al entrar en el hotel todo cambia, muy amables y siempre dispuestos, definitivamente volveremos.
