Everything is perfect except for hot water. It says it's a special environmental friendly system and the hostel has a note on how to keep the hot water running, but I don't quite understand how it works. And usually, adter a day's trip, I just want to take a shower in hot water and go to sleep without thinking how to gain hot water. It's summer now so cold water is acceptable..,

The carpet can be cleaned, a towel rack can be easily installed and appreciated by the guest.

Reasonably comfortable room with good security measures in place. The hostel itself was clean but lacking a bit in atmosphere - it could use some renovations in some areas and some small touches to brighten the place up a bit. Friendly staff and the facilities were adequate with the exception of the shower which was a pain to use and took some time to get good temperature and water pressure but was never really satisfactory. Overall good but there is definitely room for improvement.

Staff was friendly and professional. Decent location, feels safe. The atmosphere is calm. However, one damper is that the showers are a cold dribble of water! Showers definitely need an upgrade.

The bathroom and showers were really gross. The common areas were nice the location great but I just couldn't past how nasty bathrooms were.

They were undergoing some renovation when I stayed there, which was a bit inconvenient (the tap water in the kitchen was cut off for an hour or so) I suggest checking with them if the renovation is still going on when you book the room.

This is overpriced for what you actually get. We've got the room in the basement and hell it was damp, smelly, dark and extremely dirty. Sockets were loose. for the 6 nights we've stayed there was no cleaning done at all. Actually, we've inherited the dirt possibly from previous tenants. Rather pay a bit more and get a decent place if you want some comfort. The common areas were dark and there was loud rock music playing every day. Not a nice place!

Everything at the DC lofty was perfect! Great atmosphere, great staff, kitchen is very big, comfortable and clean. You can cook anything in that kitchen! Good location- You can walk anywhere you want, and if you dont like walking, take the bus/ metro! So easy. Wifi could be better, and the hostel dorms&bathrooms could use a little renovation :)

Hooks or towel racks in bathrooms would be nice. Air conditioning was not always the best. Damp smell in basement.

I stayed at the bedroom in the basement. The place needs a renoavtion. The carpet is missing near the wall and it smelled wet. There was only one light in the ceiling, and it wasn't in the middle of the room! The bathroom and the shower room are very smal, and should be connected. There is NO WATER PRESSURE and teh "ecofriendly system" that requires leaving the faucet on so one can get hot water in the shower is unclever. That wastes a lot of water and takes the pressure out of the shower.

Sometime, evenings, young visitors are very loud . Especially when they drink beer.

Average hostel. Not very clean. There are black worms coming out from the bathroom floor water outlet. Disgusting.. I had to use hot water and go clean up. Staff was friendly.

My room was unbelievably cold, and nobody was at the front desk when I went down to get blankets. I had to leave one day in advance.

Very nice hostel for good price. Amazing with access to rooftop pool! Not to much partying going on so pretty quiet at night (easy to get a good night's sleep).
