The location is close to the train and bus stations but a bit of a walk into the heart of the city. The facilities are great, a lot of long-term people living there. A big place but very well run and comfortable. Would stay here again.


Great facilities, weird atmosphere though, lots of older travellers and school trips. Not really one for young solo backpackers.


There's very little atmosphere for solo travelers to meet others, that's because guests are a mix of school groups, elderly people, and people who don't seem to be travelers at all. Not to mention you must pay for everything: from towels to wifi. Additionally, I had to switch rooms because of booking logistics from the hostel, along with many others. Some of the staff are friendly, but others seem bothered to help you. I wouldn't stay here again.


Clean hostel with great kitchen and nice terrace with amazing view. A bit quiet though and a lot of families (at the time I was there), also the blankets aren't very warm when your staying in a dorm so during the winter it's probably a good idea to bring a sleeping bag or something like that as they do not have any at the reception.


Really clean and well-kept hostel, with excellent facilities. Staff were reasonably friendly and helpful, although a bit distracted at check-in; however, they were quick to respond to requests on the whole. Safe area with great restaurants around the corner. Early on our check-out day we spotted a large bug (likely a roach) in our bathroom, under the shower siding! Might want to take a look into the wet corners of the bathrooms to ensure there isn't a pest problem.
