Terrible Customer Service
I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights.. I am a tourist doing solo travelling around Europe. As a traveller from the Far East, I was expecting that Westeners are more helpful and friendly most especially to tourist, similar to Asian hospitality. However, the receptionist in this hostel tends to be annoyed whenever I order drinks and food. He said he is counting his money and told me to wait for the next receptionist coming. He never smiles, very sarcastic and horrible. It is very obvious and I can see from his eyes that he doesn't like his job. He should quit or stay at home.

Fair price for "close to center" location, walking available. Breakfast could have more "choices". Stairs could see vacuum cleaner.

Breakfast was average (warm milk for the cereal was pretty gross) but everything else was quite good!
