Hostel was fine, if staying in the 6 bed mixed dorm. However there were no secure lockers available in the rooms or even on some floors which is really bad. Also no WIFI available anywhere outside of the reception. When asked they said that it wasn't working but there doesn't seem to be any effort made to fix it. Breakfast was reasonable. Location also okay.


The facility and breakfast are great. Sadly the bathroom is really messy.


Good was the organization of the transport from the hostel to the airport.


Location is alright, staff is friendly but it was not very well run. There are no lockers in the rooms so we had to go one more floor to use them and they were not even that good since a backpack doesnt fit. They also only had like two showers for all of the dorms plus they ran out of water many times during our visit. One of the nights our dorm and the dorm beside us flooded and the staff didn´t even know why. The wifi was also only available in the loby for a hostel that is 4 stories high.


No lockers in the room, not many toilets and showers. Dirty bathrooms. Friendly and helpfull staff.

Check in at 2, but we got our room at 5.. The toilet was broken, Only cold water in the shower and the first Night the power went off, so no aircondition.. Furthermore, the room we were staying in was not what we paid for! We paid for a double bed private and godt a twin bed.. We should pay full Price for the stay, no discount..
