One of the main reasons I chose this hostel is because the listing said it had free parking. When i checked in and asked where to park, the receptionist pointed to the paid lot next to the building. When I inquired about the free parking listed on Expedia, she said "No. It's free on Sunday, but good for you it's Sunday." When I asked what time I would need to move the car or pay in the morning, she didn't know and told me to go look outside. Paid parking starts at 8:30, it's €0.70 for the first hour, and €0.30 for each additional hour. Reasonable rate, except...When I checked in, the receptionist said she didn't have any change so I had to pay the exact rate in cash (they don't take cards) and now I had no coins. The shower was also annoying, it operates a few seconds at a time by pressing a button...over and over again. I have stayed at many other hostels, but this is one that I would not recommend.

Receptionist was abrupt and offhand. On one occasion quite rude. She gave us no information about the hostel, and we were left to find out things for ourselves. When we got to the room some of the sheets were not clean.

Wifi didnt work. Beds were comfortable, but rickety so every movement like an earhtquake. Floors were creaky so could hear people above constantly. Showers were most disappoinying - nowhere to put clothes (only one hook that barely held anything), push button shower that last 10 seconds with poor pressure. Included breakfast was bread and butter, no cereal. For €35 in a 4 bed mixed dorm i was disappointed.
