This was a very cozy hostel. I was so happy to lay my head down after my long train ride. The rooms were very spacious and I loved the that the shower was in the room. The hot water worked fantastic. I also appreciated that they had lockers you were not charged in anyway for. You just use the lock you brought. The computer service is also free. I ordered breakfast there and it was delicious. Great toast! The common area was really welcoming and relaxing, especially after a long day.Staff=awesome

awesome location, great staff. value for money great!
I wish we had stayed in greenforest another night! this hostel was fine, dorms clean and comfy. the location is not as great but easy enough to find. social area is fine but they played terrible music really loudly till late at night, meaning conversation had to be shouted to be heard. Breakfast wasn't great. little things like when we were trying to talk to staff and they started having a conversation with each other from across the room for a minute before finishing answering us.
The common room is quiet hot to stay. They open the a/c quite late. There is not wifi signal in all the rooms. Location is excellent.
It looked much better in the pictures! The only good things are the staff and location. Rooms and bathrooms are not very clean; they do have some charm and tons of natural light though.
Nothing special about this hostel. The dorm I stayed in smelt quite moldy and was dark, though it did have an en suite bathroom. Wifi had facebook access but was so slow it wasn't really worth trying.
The beds are very very hard if you stay in a private room. We couldn't sleep because of it. Otherwise the hostel was clean and friendly.
