How to Get There
The hostel is clean, quiet and in the middle of everything from where you can walk all over places. Three subway stations are near. The dosnside is that there is no place to cook (they have a restaurant) and the internet works only in the courtyeard.
It's a lovely place to stay. The staff were very helpful, it's in a great location and has all the basics you need.
My main criticism/concern would be security. While measures are in place, such as being able to leave your belongings in a luggage room that has lockers available for a Euro, it would get rid of a lot of the headache if lockers were in the rooms, and ensure any concerns over luggage were minimised. Shortly before my stay here, I stayed in a similar hostel where each guest had a large wooden storage box under their bed that could be opened and locked with their room key. Implementing a system such as this would provide a much easier experience for visitors. As it is, unless one of the lockers in the storage room is available, it is not possible to lock your belongings anywhere. My roommate had to lock some of their belongings to a radiator with a padlock, which doesn't seem terribly efficient.
The breakfast was also quite basic. But, as I say, overall it's a good place to stay and I would certainly do so again.
For an error of the hostel, the security person who served as the administrative staff during the night (which, of course, is harmful for the clients), informed me the second night when I returned from touring the city, that I did not I counted more with my reservation given that "he had not introduced me". Therefore, they had removed from the room where I had left my belongings, and had left in the reception. Despite the extensive explanations that I had presented myself, that in fact they had my belongings (suitcases and other personal items that also, manipulated without my consent) because I had slept there, etcetera, and then to go to the given police station that I had the role of the reserve SUBSCRIBE, they said that they had no place and they threw me in the street at 1 in the morning. Also, when I returned the next morning, they made me pay for my entire stay, and so far, they refused to pay me the taxi and hotel expenses I had to incur due to their failure. They argued that they do not pay it because they did not send the invoice to them, when they did send them the card receipt. Also, although they promised to return the money of the stay in their hotel for the inconvenience, they did not do this either. A scam, given that they gave my bed to another and that money was actually charged.
In addition, the rooms do not have lockers where to leave the belongings, the place was noisy, the cleaning was not the best and the breakfast were hard breads, with jam or lard and cereal, neither eggs, nor sausages, nor cold meats or cheeses or anything Really a bad experience.
