Worst Reception Staff Ever!!! (Nice kitchen, though.)
Seriously, you almost gotta check it out for yourself to believe it. The worst part by far, is the very recognizable guy with big frizzy hair who will ask you what do you fkn NEED when at reception when clearly you wanna check in, the same guy who's always playing very loud metal music until, well, all day (you can't even hear the television at the adjacent room, or even normal conversations in the kitchen)and it seems like yelling and being a complete as#^%le to everyone in the hostel is normal behavior to him, he'll probably scream at you for something nonsensical and then order you to clean up dishes that aren't yours, or maybe write very crude and offensive messages next to the lifts (purportedly to the people who don't wash their dishes). Most of the staff is also quite rude, unhelpful and often just completely non-responsive (drug junkies doesn't even begin to cover it). The 12 bed dorms during the warm season got very uncomfortable with everyone sleeping in their underwear, which I guess could be seen as a plus, but sadly there is no AC or fans in those big rooms, except a window that opens ever so slightly, so it gets incredibly stuffy and when it's a full house, fermented goon unwashed locker room is truly an understatement. On the plus side, the kitchen is quite nice with lots of dishes (although you have to give a 2dl deposit for cups and mugs) and they have a ping pong, pool (kinda) and a few board games. The people staying are mostly pretty chill and backpacker-y, though you do get a few people staying for well over a year or two, who like the staff will make it clear that they believe the main areas to be "their" space. It's not the best hostel, is what I'm saying.
