    Lo staff è gentile e super disponibile. L’unica pecca è l’assenza di spazi comuni, per il resto tutto bene.

    The hostel looks old and the structure is not really well maintained. I think they should clean more often the common areas. The first 2 nights we didn't have extra blankets and the room was pretty cold due to bad windows The location is quite good. There is no elevator

    When we arrived at the hostel the girl who checked us in hardly said a word to us and seemed pissed off. The room ( 8 bed mixed dorm ) was fine. There were no lockers. The kitchen is big and alright but people left their used pans and yoghurt cups behind. Sometimes we woke up to a hallway of tables covered in board games and vodka. Many longtermers acted like they owned the place and treated the community room/ the hallway that way. Staff was unorganized and the shower stank like a zoo.

Similar situation in the toiletat
