Good facilities and very social. ~2-3km to town centre so get a bus pass from 7/11 (~2.5USD one way). The 16bed male dorm has attracted very "unique" Swedish people both times I've stayed here. Some younger travellers were scared, so I'd recommend getting a small room if you're easily alarmed by unusual characters. I saw the funny side. I would definitely stay here again.
If you want to stay here quietly, you get the right choice.
The location is better than a lot of people think, but unfortunately this hostel is expensive and you get very little for that money. The beds are older and not that comfortable. The bathrooms are fine, but the smell of mildew in a few of them is a problem I have not encountered at other hostels. The worst part about this hostel is that it is not a good place to go when you are a young single backpacker. It is incredibly hard to meet people, at least when I was there.
This hostel is like sharing an apartment with people you don't know. It is located as an offshoot of another hostel across an alley. I saw no staff besides checking in and checking out. It was clean and decent location pretty close to the main part of town and a beautiful park. Clientele seemed to be a bit older but it could've just been my timing. Overall a decent place but not the best atmosphere.
This hostel is cheap, comfortable, clean and quiet. Exactly what i needed. The staff were friendky and helpful. And the atomsphere amoung travellers was cherful ☺
Great place to stay, the staff are amazing as is the hostel
Good location right in the middle of the city, however the bathrooms werent functioning on several occasions and the showers were down a basement and past several corridors...
The is just by a huge park even has own zoo and sealion pool. Despite not right in the centre, there are trams not far away, or you can hire a bike at the entrance to the park (apparently it's pretty cheap, but I didn't need to as I had my own bike with me), and it's less than 15 minutes ride to the centre.
I had a great stay! Felt very safe and comfortable. The showers and bedrooms were very clean and well taken care of. Even made some new travel buddies!
I like the kitchen that is small but full facilities.
Very good value for money
Loved it.close to City Center.Tram is right down the block.Hope to return real soon
The lockers provided under the beds were too flat to properly fit a backpack into and the upper bunk beds were a little difficult to climb into and out of because the ladder was too far to the side.

I stayed in the dorm room. The hostel is clean, the kitchen/living room is great to meet people and even though the hostel is a bit away from the old town on foot, there is a tramway station very close. I would definitively come back there again next time.
A pleasant hostel. Friendly and social kitchen/common room, so awesome for making friends. Close to a tram, so access to the rest of the city is convenient. The kitchen was cramped, and a bit poorly lit. Overall, I had a nice stay here.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at in Europe. Appreciated all the help from the staff as well.

Nice and clean hostel, helpful staff, good location :) Would stay there again.
This hostel was hard to find, it was in a strange neighbourhood (although it was really close to a great park) and there weren't many signs saying where it was. The atmosphere was good but not amazing!
Wondering experience, very clean and safe
The hostel is OK, I was just unlucky with other guests in the male dorm. One took an occupied bed, resulting in some noise when the owner came back at 1am reclaiming his spot. People laughing after midnight, people watching movies without headphones after midnight
