This hostel is not for young people in their 20s to 30s. This hostel had a sterile feel with no real character. It felt like a capitalist hostel.

Its more of a hotel feel. Too many children on school trips and not my favorite part of the city. However, its clean, cheap and has great views of the city.
The worst night's sleep I've ever had. Extremely noisy. Wouldn't stay there again.
It was very easy to get to from SXF and for €10 a night it was what I expected. The staff was very helpful and offered us a larger room than we had booked. It would have been nice however if they had not been in the process of remodelling the place while we were there, but I can't complain too much. Overall, if you just need a cheap place to crash, this place is very convenient and clean. Just don't expect to be staying in luxury.
I had a rocky start - got put in a room with twice as many people as the room I originally booked! They said there was a mix up with hostelworld & they were full so they couldn't do anything. I understand it was over NY's period but a bit of a poor response. The bathrooms on my floor didn't work so all the females on 2 floors shared 4 toilets & 7 showers. Not great but the rooms were big, the bar, kitchen & common areas were good. Poor wifi though.
It was all very clean and the staff was great. But the hostel is just too big and doesn't have a great atmosphere for that reason.

I was extremely disappointed by my stay in the hostel. I booked and paid extra for a 4-person room for myself and my friends and was sent a confirmation of that booking for 4 people. When we arrived, we were told we were in a 6 person room, no warning or apology. The hotel staff were rude and extremely unhelpful about their mistake. No refund was offered, despite us asking. No proper lockers (just cages that can easily be reached into). Bathroom out of order with no warning either.
Really nice hostel, not in the heart of the city but next to the metro station so you can reach each point very fast. A lot of self service facilities which are making your stay easier and more comfortable. Highly recomended.
