Great breakfast every morning, although the location is a little bit of a walk from any of the main stations. Not a bad walk though, tons to see and experience from all three stations to the hostel. The security was great, keycard entry into the building and rooms. Rooms were impeccably clean (ours was a two person private). We liked the environmentally conscious messaging, and the common area was big enough to chill in easily.


Nice rooms and facilities. The location is not the best but it is easy to move around in the city. Overall a good experience.


We had a good stay in this hostel. It is located approximately 15-20 minutes by walk from the main square. We choosed this hostel mainly for secure parking lot which they have it. Staff was very helpful and they even let us to leave our car on their parking lot after we checked out. Room for two persons was ok. Breakf'ast was excellent. We would definately recommend this hostel for that money + if you are traveling with car you don't need to look for some parking lot.


Hostel had a nice atmosphere and entrance. The bar was good for a night cap. The area in general was a little out of the way, but still walking distance to the center. The room had lockers and a private bathroom. It was clean enough, although smelt a little funny. I think you had to make the beds (I can't remember exactly.) The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was free, but not very good. It is a good place to spend one night, but not a great place to meet others.
