Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hostel is about out of city so this would be best when travelling by car.

We were only guests in the hostel on a rainy day of June. Everything worked well and our room was clean, though out-dated.

This is not for luxury-seeker but was well worth the small amount of money we paid.

The hostel was in a process of a refurbishement. The toilets and showers were newly made but not yet quite finished. Our room was ok even though a bit small.
We didn't use the public room or the kitchen. These rooms weren't really inviting.

Our reservation wasn't known at our check-in due to a defective smartphone. If there would have been noone there at that moment, I don't know wheter we could have checked-in or not. There are other ways to stay up to date for bookings even if the phone is broken.

Over all it was ok. But we wouldn't have to spend more than the nights in this hostel.
