  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

So we stayed during our trip as our last place to visit in Europe and as we got there from the start the staff was rude but we ignored it. Eventually I realized that there was a language barrier and asked management and they told me that the staff speaks English so I didn’t have to worry about not speaking fluent French. So I tried talking to the staff and they again said they didn’t speak English and I talked to management again finally I told them ok I’m going to give you their names and lord and behold the staff that couldn’t speak English to me or my travel partner suddenly learned the language overnight. That was just unprofessional considering they’re a hostel and they’re business is based of off taking care of travelers. The rooms were clean tho but the staff was literally the worst and I’m talking about front desk and bartenders the cleaning ladies were kind. Not to mention the weirdest moment was as I went on my way to sightsee I saw two workers just giving each other shoulder massages on the job. Just weird to see at the front desk but it explains why check in takes forever. I’m going to visit a couple of more times but I’m not staying in any generators thanks for your time

  • Liked: Staff & service

centrally located but needs some help in cleanliness. Carpets i floors stained and smell moldy/smoky. Room was generally clean except the vent on the shower head that was full of filth.
