This is the worst HI Hostel I have ever been in. The toilets and baths are frankly appalling but at least you can go out and use other places. What is simply disgusting are the mattresses and sheets. They stink , are worn out and should have been thrown out decades ago. As for the staff, they seem to be constantly there but absent. The place has no facilities. Cheaper and better hostels are dotted around the city. Use them insteaf.

Minuses: no electronic booking system (my pre-reserved room was given to someone else on the first night despite my email on late arrival); no cash register, no payment instruments other than cash accepted, no receipts given; no breakfast; dirty bathrooms with faulty fixtures and water supply issues; unclean towels; musty smell in private rooms. Pluses: friendly staff, free Wi-Fi.

Situee dans une rue en pente. L accès est difficile par temps de neige. Les salles de bain auraient besoin d être repeintes. Bonne ambiance, mais pas de cuisine en libre accès et pas de petit déjeuner.

Great location. Could do with some investment to improve bedding and bathrooms. Breakfast availability would be a big plus.
