To be honest, I chose this hostel mainly for its location and price. It is not far from a metro station which is an advantage if you need to move around the city or quickly arrive/go to the airport. The hostel seems to have good noise insulation as I could not hear the guests in the neighboring room. There was also a sink in my room which I consider a plus, but at the same time it was a source of weird smell. Breakfast included is clearly a plus!
Not a big tragedy but keep in mind that they do not give you towels. I assume you can pay for one. There are lockers in the room but you cannot lock them unless you have a lock or get one from the reception. There are several buildings and only one of them has a reception. So you check-in in one building then you may have to cross the street to get to the other ones. Internet was very slow, do not know if I was unlucky or it is just bad all the time. Some sockets in the room were not working.
The water was not hot in the shower and room was cold
I didn't take breakfast. When I arrived, the receptionist told me that the breakfast will be from 7 am to 9 am. The following day, I came in 7 am and found a new receptionist who told me that breakfast starts from 8. As my program was intensive I didn't get a chance to take breakfast at that time. Actually I get confused with the changing time of breakfast by your receptionists.
The hostel has a nice location and extremely clean. The worst thing is that the heating system was not ok and the water was very cool and could not take shower.
Breakfast was just toast, something, but not exactly great. Room was cold with no duvet available just a very thin blanket
