It's a budget hotel rather than a hostel, despite the pool table and bar making it sound otherwise. There's no kitchen for backpackers to cool and it feels like it's a popular destination for people on business. Also the free wifi is misleading as there is a limit to what you can use and the rest must be paid for. But otherwise it's one of te cheaper places in the city I think, and it's clean and decent value.
Location was a bit far from the city to go out late at night. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Love having a hairdryer in the room. Staff weren't friendly though and the common area wasn't fun, couldn't meet new people here.
Hostel has lockers at reception, lockers in rooms, but take your own lock. About 20 min walk from the center, friendly stadd, not such a great place to meet other backpackers, very clean.
I really liked this hostel the only problem is that location is not so good.
HUGE room! Very clean and friendly staff. The only downside was that it was 15 minutes away from Old Town. But other than that, I would highly recommend staying here

Not a hostel. The girl who looks like Kirsten Dunst didnt make any effort to check me in a bit earlier, as they did in the same hotel in Cologne. She seemed more focused on keeping her conversation with a guest. The place is not bad, but definitely not a good one either. Room gets cold easily and the walls could use some painting. Doesnt have any atmosphere, and it felt like I was crashing into a private party (a really boring one). A lot of business men around, not good for solo travelers.
The staff was not friendly at all. They weren't rude but they didn't seem like they cared about their job. The rooms were fairly nice. I actually really liked the bathrooms in the room. Very clean and they had a hair dryer! They even gave free full sized towels which was awesome. The atmosphere was terrible though. No one seemed interested in meeting people and the bar was always empty. Although I might stay again because the bathrooms were nice.
No vibe in this hostel. Facilities were decent but nothing to rave about. Wouldn't stay here again.
I didn't have to pay for my linen but I did have to go in search for it. Something that many people didn't do and just slept on the mattress, pillow and blanket with no coverings. This felt extremely unhygienic and I would recommend for the hostel to just provide linen to everyone to avoid this
Not a hostel at all, no real atmosphere but good location and wifi to chill out
It's a reasonable hostel at a reasonable price. Facilities were basic but clean and good enough plus staff were always really helpful. I was in a room with really fun people - atmosphere was otherwise non existent
More like a hotel feeling than hostel. Staff very kind and helpful. Close to train and short walk to downtown. Met some great people.
extremely clean, well equipped, comfy beds, great showers, great breakfast. missing a little atmosphere.
The receptionists are nice but it takes WAY too long to check-in/out
Really weard set up of a room 4 person dorm 1 bunk beds and 2 single beds pushed together like they where 1. Beds very uncomfortable and with the windows shut still very loud. Can here people in next room
It's a good place to stay in the city, but keep in mind you have to pay extra for sheets (bedding) and a towel.
We had a wonderful time at this hostel, it was a little bit far away from the centre of the city, but it was like a 20-25 min walk to the river
