Great hostel, very good facilities and super location. Great Wi-Fi connection and very clean, while the bar downstairs had a great atmosphere. The staff could lighten up a bit and be a bit more friendly though. Would definitely recommend!

This was not a hostel, but a cheap hotel in a terrible location. If you love to be welcomed with rude people working at reception, very expensive breakfast for what you get, and the inability to order food at their bar (which they advertise as a super neato thing) because their cook was sick for 3 nights in a row (without a replacement), then this place is for you. Would not come back.

It's close to central station. Rooms are big and clean. Toilet and shower are way too small.

One of the best hostels I've ever used! I would recommend this hostel to anybody! The only thing that I was not so happy about was that lavatory and bathroom are TOO small...

Almost excellent everything. Bathroom cleaning everyday would be my suggestion, for an "excellent" rate in "cleanliness"!

Really big and busy hostel. There's not really any quiet chill out areas, only the large bar area and Cafe booths at reception. Didn't have a meet people/backpacker vibe. The rooms and clean, bunks comfortable and bathroom fine. Great location Didn't like how there wasn't a kitchen

Felt a bit more like a hotel than a hostel. Security on the door searching bags for alcohol was not a great first impression, but it was very clean and easy to get to. Prices in the bar/cafe are a bit extortionate however...

Was great staying at this hostel. Although they kept us waiting for 2 hours after the check in time room was great. Located very close to station. Really easy to talk to people in common area and has a decent bar.

I was in a dorm and the shower/toilet was suuuuper small! It was also inside the room, so it was quite noisy. You could barely turn around. Even the sink was too small to properly brush your teeth or wash your hands. Apart from that everything was fine. Good wifi and location.

As per other reviews, the lock on the toilet was broken, bit awkward in a shared room. Also we requested food from the menus on two consecutive nights and were told the kitchen wasn't open, apparently due to there not being enough staff available. Defiantly pack ear plugs (we had an old guy snoring like a jet engine and the street noise). Great location, very close to train station.

It's a typical large chain hostel: good security, clean facilities, no atmosphere. Just one staff at the reception desk at a time, so there's often a queue for check-ins etc. The bathroom was tiny; the sink was really uncomfortable, even for a short person like me. But generally clean facilities & outlets for each bed. Location is very convenient (right next to the train station). The "common room"/bar area didn't seem helpful for meeting new people, but I made some friends from my room.

The sinks in bathrooms are extremely small.. It's almost impossible to use them. The security guy can be irritating sometimes.. Location is excellent! Staff is friendly!

A very large hostel, easy to find and get to and from. Helpful and friendly staff. Good facilities and security. Such a large and busy place will always be rather 'bland'.

Nice atmosphere! Good size of rooms - a bit small bathrooms though.

Good hostel over all - good staff and some cool people stayed there. The only problem was that it was so hot. It wasn't too hot outside but the bedrooms were unbearable. Thankfully I was in an all girls dorm so we slept naked but it was so hot it felt suffocating. The windows wouldn't open either.
