Leider müssen wir in Punkto Sauberkeit ein Mangelhaft erteilen. In der gemeinsamen Küche lagen tote Käfer(Kakerlaken) auf der ARBEITSPLATTE! Der Kühlschrank stank nach verwestem. Die gemeinsame Dusche war total verschimmelt. Da wir nur eine Nacht vor Ort waren können wir nicht sagen was von unseren Beanstandungen alles vom Personal umgesetzt wurde. Nachts ist sehr laut im Hof gefeiert worden. Sehr schlecht für Kleinkinder! Ein Lichtblick: Das Personal war aber sehr Freundlich und behilflich.

Even though I was supposed to pay 170EUR, they had me pay 192EUR, I believe they hadn't counted in the pre-payment, so I paid those 20 EUR twice. There were ants in our room. It was hard to sleep, because all the rooms had light windows above doors, from which the light from the corridor went in.

Dear Helena, thank you for your review, we value every comment as it helps us improve in the future. We regret you had such experience with us. The accounting double checked your invoice and yes, there was an error in your bill. Please contact us directly for reimbursement and we wil process the payment immediately. Should you inform us at reception with your complaint, we would have changed your room immediately. Still, we hope you enjoyed our lovely city... Best regards and apologies once again, Matic, the manager

I liked the room- it felt more like a hotel than a hostel. I also appreciated the staff when I got locked in the bathroom. Furthermore the fact the cheap price included breakfast was nice.

alte, marode Studentenunterkunft, Küche und Bad laden nicht zum Gebrauch ein! Ev. geeignet für Junge, als älteres Semester kommt man sich eher fehl am Platz vor. Frühstück in Kantine zw. 6.00-8.00 Uhr mit vielen Schülern.....

When I arrived I was told they had forgotten to record my booking and that there were no rooms vacant. The young lady who was at reception was very good and helped me find alternative accommodation but as to the administrative process I would say it is very poor. The small deposit was not refunded either. I would skip DIC and stay at Hostel Celia, much better location.
