Great location, with a nice enough staff. The hostel itself however was inadequate. The common room was very small as well as the rest of the facilities. WiFi was spotty no matter where you were in the hostel. I would recommend finding a different hostel to stay at, but if all you are looking for is a place to sleep than this hostel isn't the worst option.

I was just here for one night but I thought it was a good enough hostel. In a good location, yet quiet. It is about 25 minutes walking from the train station. One peculiar thing...The bathroom doesn't have a mirror which is good because people won't be held up in the bathroom for long, but it makes doing your hair/makeup/etc in the morning difficult. Not a big deal for me, but for some it could be..

The worst place i have ever been: - Don't accept credit card, only cash. - The rooms are definetly not the ones in the photos. - The room for six, is actually a room for 2 persons and it looks like a prison. - They don't clean the rooms. - The staff from the hostel enters in your private room to fix or to say something without permission. - A lot of noise in the streets and in the hostel. Actually, do not try to rent a room in this place.

My blanket had a creepy smell of foot. It is realy small and there is only one commun room and it is the reception. If you want to chill with other persons in the hostel you can only do it in your dorm you dont really have a place to do that inside the hostel. The bathroom is incredibly small. But happily, the hostel is really well located.

Located fairly close to the museums. The wifi didn't really work half the time. Only five lockers in an eight bed room. Good for what you pay for.

The place was dirty and claustrophobic. We had six bed mixed dorm which was very small and smelly. The bed sheets were not clean and the other people made noises throughout night. Very bad experience and no one should come here until there is no option!!!!

Very good place, awesome location in the older part of town. We even had the surprise to have a "private" little room for the 2 of us ! Just note that there is no facilities to cook or store food. Lots of cheap restaurants around though. Small shower and toilet but definitely a positive impression of this place. GREAT value for money !

You couldn't even turn around in the toilett and the shower was just one squaremeter wet-cell so there is no opportunity to Put your stuff somewhere while you're taking a shower. You eather lewt everything become wet or you leave it outside the door where everyone can take it... So I ended up not showering at all

There is no kitchen, so be prepared to eat out. Coffee and tea only for sale in common room. Internet works primarly only there and on stairs, in rooms connection is veeery poor. Cleanliness in our room (29) and specially in shower/WC room was very bad. Bad ventilation (smells all the time) and black fungus all over the ceiling. In other rooms shower/WC is outside the room. Safety is odd: five lockers for eight people in the room (bring your own locker). Impossible to sleep-very loud outside

The hostel was centrally located and great in value for money. However, the large dorm with 10 beds and one shower tended to get dirty very quickly. The staff was very friendly and it was a cozy and small hostel. There were many nice bars and restaurants in the area, and the all-night bar nearby didn't cause any problems for me.

I wouldn't stay here again. Good location, but not worth it. It felt very unclean - My linen smelt of cheese, floor was sticky and there were condom wrappers under the bed. Staff were very nonchalant - reception hours depended on who could be bothered to stand there, cleaner just kicked a wet towel round the floor for 2mins then left. Our bathroom door handle broke and very little attempt was made to fix it. Awful atmosphere - no real common area. It says no smoking but people do it anyway.

Cheap stay in city centre, nothing less nothing more... No kitchen or dining room at all! If u hoped to save some money by eating in... Forget about it. Not even plates and knives to make yourself a sandwich. Apart from that its pretty standard.

My only real complaint was that there was no 24 HR reception, you can't check out in between 3:00 AM and 8:00 AM, but the staff was willing to help out and make accommodations.

Altough the hostel has a good location, the atmosphere is very low. Beds and walls at the hostel are dirty. Not satisfied.
