    When we arrived at 8 pm, it was already dark outside, so it was really hard to find the hostel, but I realized in the morning that we were actually very lucky. Because there is no single sign, where the hostel is. There is only one on the entrance door, which is around 2 more corners, on the 16th floor, in the courtyard without street lighting and nobody around who knows anything about the Yak hostel. When I had booked 10 beds in a 10-bed dormitory, I expected all people would be in the same room. My fault. It is probably very complicated to manage when you are a totally unwilling receptionist. I don´t know whether the girl at the reception was high or what, but she was not able to find free beds for us at the beginning. We had to move a few times from room to room. Beds were uncomfortable, I felt every spring on my body. I asked a girl, who was staying at the hostel for quite some time, for a towel and luckily she knew where they were because otherwise I would have been left without it. Icing on the cake was a recommendation for a free walking tour. After finding the meeting point, a guy in a newsstand told us that this walking tour did not exist for a few months. Despite the fact that the hostel is quite clean and not so far from the city center, I don´t recommend it. I visited 30 countries around the world, but the approach at this hostel was probably the worst ever.

    The location

    The staff isn't polite. Bad experience. I forgot to give payment of my 3rd night, before noon, after booking on internet. To extend until the NEXT night (I already paied the nights before). The staff picked me up in my bed 2 hours later to request immediate payment as if I were a criminal, screaming. Bad atmosphere, not good mood. Long term resident. Far from an international hostel !

    Staff was friendly. They allowed me to left my baggage before check-in. Also the location of the hostel is quite good. But it is very hard find where it is located.

    There is no sign or title of the hostel even in the building enterence. I have read all the comments so I haven’t get lost. But you can’t be sure that you are on the right plase till the door of the hostel on 16th floor. Bed is uncomfortable. You can feel the arches.
