Hostel One
Reviewed 12 November 2011

I had to stay one night at this place 'cause the hostel where I was staying was fully booked. It was a nightmare. It's right under a highway and at the corner of a very busy street: you can't sleep there, even with earplugs. Terrible noisy.
Besides, it's filthy, dirty and everything seems to fall apart. The toilets don't work properly, the kitchen is a mess. And the TV is on and on all day and night, even if nobody is watching the owner likes to have it as loud as possible.
The employees bring their children to the hostel: the kiddies bored them selves, scream, are annoying, it's not the place to bring children!
I was given a bed in a dorm, I went out and come back: my bed was given to somebody else. A complete lack profesionalism and efficiency.

Last but not least I just can't understand the logic of having at minimum 4 or 5 employees doing nothing there at the same time while it's so much to be done.

I stayed 4 nights in this hostel and considered a good hostel equipped with many facilities. Good breakfast I would say and the bathroom is also big enough. Although it was a quite a distance to the downtown plus the staffs they don't really speak English, they are still trying to sort out your problems. Overall, a good place to stay for a night or two.

Safe, clean place with small dorms, poor breakfast (bread, milk, coffe, butter, there are always not enough meals, so you need to go and ask for it), good internet connection, nice antient building, nice kithcen but with coackroaches inside the shelves. It is more like private house for residents than hostel, you feel yourself all the time like you are visiting them and staying for free. It is family owned place and your feel yourself like visiting your relatives which not really happy to see you. They treet you like they are giving you a favour. At the reception desk do work people which lives at the same hostel for free, they dont pay them, so you may expect no hospitality. During my staying i needed to move from one room to another and stuff at the reception desk forgot to make changes at their reservation system, so next day boss of the hostel told me it is all my fault, i slept at 2 beds at the same time and she tried to make me pay extra money. My friend was offered by owner promotional price for to stay at the single room, but she forgot to tell about it to another receptionist, so when my friend were living hostel they tried to make her pay full price (almost double), owner did not answer the phone whole day long. It was her last day at BA and she needed to go to the airport, they did not gave her chance to live the hostel, they let her go only when hostel owner finally answered the phone and confirmed the price. As a result she arrived late to the airport and missed her flightto London. Double room is extremely expensive, you may find better offer at another hostel. But if you have some money to spend and dont going to stay there more than couple of nights, it is not that bad.
