When I booked my trip I didn't have my HI membership, and asked for the discount to be applied when I arrived, which I had done at two other HI hostels. I was told by Patrick he had never heard of HI and didn't know what I was talking about. Patrick was rude (I was told he was the manager) However Argene and other staff people were very friendly. There were some good restuarants in the area. And the walk to the train was not that far.

Dear Guest, Normally the reservation is already discounted when you book through HI and our agreement with our partner is that if the member can show their card before paying then we can add another 5% discount to the room room balance. Without the card as a proof, we cannot do so. Maybe this was the misunderstanding as we instructed them to ask for the membership ID before giving further discounts. We have just recently become partners with HI so this is something new for our staff. In behalf of our Staff we sincerely apologize for this. Aside from this incident we do hope you enjoyed your stay with us. Kind regards, Alessandro Palace

All the staff are so friendly, they help you in whatever you need and they can. I had a really good experience and I definitely going to come back!

We had a good stay, the room was clean and comfortable but there were no recycling facilities and the kitchen was poorly equipped and not well monitored which led to some hygiene difficulties. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Location is central. However facility of kitchen is insufficient & cleanliness is extremely bad. I can see cockroaches running around in the kitchen, & there's no proper labelling system like the other HI hostels for food items in the barely functioning fridge (do not know how they manage the validity of food left in there? Stoves were not working too. Kitchen is only open from 1-10pm, thus breakfast is not possible in there. All these need urgent attention.
