We had a great two night stay here - location was good, right by the train station, although I'd say if you can, you're better off finding somewhere a little more central as we did walk a lot. But that was my only qualm, Eric and the rest of the staff were incredibly welcoming, bumped us up to a private with a private bathroom for no extra charge, let me use the computers for free, and even provided my friend a converter to borrow when she realized she'd forgotten hers. Really great! Thanks guys

The lady staff was very friendly and smiley. The room (three private with shared bathroom) was cozy and comfortable. There was a small separate part for a kitchen with free coffee and tea. The location was great but it was a few blocks behind the train station, which should be explained in the 'direction to this hostel' apart from the name of the street.
We booked a twin room in friends hostel but when we arrived, we knew that they didn't have a room for us and they sent us to hello kitty hostel where a double bed bedroom was prepared. It was very unprofessional, they wanted us to spend a night in a double bed knowing that we specifically booked a twin bedroom. After arguing for an hour because the room was so small, they managed to put a bed. But our afternoon was spoiled
Information in the Hostelworld web page is incorrect. It says 24H Reception but there's no reception, no receptionist a whole day that disables the luggage room function. For check-in, be there at the exact arrival time so that a man will call your name on the street. The web shows a nice kitchen pic but it doesn't exists. Should be the other hostel's. A few chairs in the small corridor in front of the rooms, but we don't call it a Common room. If we knew the fact, we wouldn't have booked it.
Me and my boyfriend had a great time at this hostel! Very good and cosy place! Feels like home :)
This isn't quite a hostel as there is no reception area. We arrived late and had to wait on someone to come and let us into the facility. He had no paperwork or documentation on about our arrival which I found very frustrating. There was a kitchen but you couldn't use it. When we told him about the wifi not working in our building he suggested that we walk to the other building and use that wifi and told us he wasn't there to provide wifi for us and if we didn't like it for us to go elsewhere.
Absolutely loved this hostel. Doesn't even feel like a hostel. Owners were lovely, and very helpful. Great location. So many restraunts on your door step. Had no problems. Highly recommend!
Staying at the Friends hostel was really great. Our room was very cosy and clean. I recommend this hostel everyone!

Really nice and clean hostel. The map provided was not the best and was missing some important information for us but we found a better one on the shelf in the hostel so it worked out ok. Directions to vatican that were given to us didn't work for us and it was hard to ask any hostel employees questions because we didn't know where they were.
