Good location, carpets look dirty and outdated. Front desk personnel were spotty, sometimes friendly sometimes they didn't want to be bothered. Bar staff unfriendly and dismissive.

Spectacular architecture, central location
This is the most spectacular architectural hostel I’ve ever stayed in. It’s a piece of art and if you like beautiful buildings and impressive architecture, this place is a must visit. Our room was facing the street and we stayed over the weekend, so it was a bit loud but a good pair of earplugs would do the job. There were USB plugs near the bed and the mattress was comfortable. There was hot water in the shower. Actually, there was almost no cold water which was strange. There was a hairdryer as well. We spotter two huge cockroaches on the balcony but luckily not on the room. All the staff was very friendly, nice and helpful. Breakfast was fine but definitely not amazing. Unfortunately, only American coffee was included to the prepaid breakfast, so to get a good coffee, we had to pay extra. The only thing I didn’t like was the common kitchen. It looked disgusting. Like REALLY disgusting. Unfortunately, the guests didn’t help keeping the place clean either. To my surprise, there was no kettle to warm some water. There was a nice big terrace too. It might be good to cover the cushions when it rains, so people can actually use the sitting area when it stops raining.

Unfriendly stuff, poor attention when I had ask for an extra pillow- never got it, and they forgot to supply with shampoo, toilet paper and soap.

4/10 Fair

This is a weird "hotel." I don't actually consider it a hotel. I consider it a hostel. But it's not only a hostel, there's a co-working space as well, a movie theater, and a party room/space. I think it's trying to be too much at once. I was disappointed that when I got there, I didn't even have toilet paper in my room! (Very quickly remedied by the staff there though, so that's a good thing.) Bring your own toilet paper, your own soap, your own shampoo, conditioner and don't forget to pack your hair dryer. You will also need towels. It is also *not* accessible to wheelchair users. It doesn't have an elevator and the breakfast area was three floors down from my room. That being said, the staff is excellent, and the location can't be beat. However, I think there needs to be some truth in advertising. This is a hostel, not a hotel.
