Amazing review!!!

Big lockers that you fit your suitcase/backpack into Located right beside the main square, right in the heart of the city! The staff were amazing. Everyone was so friendly & welcoming. They made sure you enjoyed your stay, regardless of if you wanted to party or relax! All the other guests were friendly, and the staff joined our conversations. Very clean. The big lockers allow the dorm rooms to stay uncluttered. Well priced bar & pub crawl! Great breakfast! great range & filling! Loved it

The staff are wonderful. There is a real problem with the showers - they are often out of hot water and are sometimes finnicky about temperature. It was a fun place to stay though.

Everything great, the only problem was that it was very rare to have hot water to take shower,

Staff couldn't do enough, obviously wish to promote the place. Fantastic location, and not too large. Only slight downside was that the bar is not always accessible, you have to hassle the people on reception to get you a beer. But that is being very picky! Great hostel

Thanks for the review :) No hassle for us to serve You. Because we get few tips from our guests our bar is open every day in the evening, and there is a party every night. We change for You :) That's cheesy, but true!

The hostel was ok. The location is great but apart from that it wasn't the best hostel. Showers were frequently cold. The atmosphere wasn't the best particularly if you're a single traveller, was a little hard to meet people. The staff seemed all over the place and they have a strange key system where you have to leave your key at reception everytime you leave the hostel. Overall and average stay.

Thanks for the review! We will keep an eye on hot water problem. Also, You rate us 2/5 for security and complained about key system, but it's for Your security! We have 2 intercoms - front and upper door, cameras system, 24h reception... We feel like we earned more than 2/5 :(

NO HOT WATER! Which is something important for me, nice place for money, in front of all discos and bars. Staff was so obsessed with making you wrote a good reference to them, they still think they're the same as 2007 when they won a hostel award. Cheap breakfast

The hostel is in the old town, which is very convenient to visit the historical center. The room is ok.

Location is perfect. Staff is awesome, but the fact that they decided to transform the kitchen into a bar was a very bad idea. Still, you can stay there.

Very good Hostel, staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Location is prime, near the square and you have easy accessibility to everything. Particularly ideal for students and travelers who are looking to meet new people.
