This hostel has a significant bed bug problem and does not practice any precautions to protect travelers. Housekeeping hastily vacuums and changes linens and conducts no other precautions that I could witness. I found live bed bugs. Other people in my room had bed bugs. There is no guest laundry service and stained mattresses continue to be reused. I have no doubt that management covers up problems instead of conducting pest control. I will no longer trust HI quality due to this experience.

It was a nice hostel, even though I was kind of concerned about the security. You are supposed to leave your keys at the reception and if you head back to the hostel you just tell them your room number and you are getting the keys. There is no further ID control or anything like that. Besides that, I liked the beds, especially that you were able to draw a curtain in between the beds and the lockers and got some kind of privacy this way.

The two nights I spent there were horrible. It was 36 degrees, without even a fan, I felt hard to fall asleep only until late at night. With a window facing the yard, quite noisy from 5 or 6 am in the morning...What's more, the wash sink was clogged the first night when my friend washed his clothes. We told the reception the next morning, but it was not repaired until we back that night.. will not come back again

Es war zu laut und das Zimmer wurde uns als 3-Bett-Zimmer verkauft, dabei war es ein 2-Bett-Zimmer, in das man noch ein... Etwas hineinstellte, das wohl ein Bett sein sollte - und steinhart war. Wenigstens eine anständige Matratze draufzulegen wäre eine gute Idee.
